Crowdfunding in Detroit – Panel Discussion

Crowdfunding isn’t always as easy as it might seem. You might have a great idea and friends offering to help, but how do you strategize to ensure you can reach your crowdfunding goals?

Come meet successful crowd-funders and learn first-hand strategies for raising money in innovative ways! We’ll learn about the platforms, the techniques, the potential pitfalls and the opportunities when it comes to crowdfunding big money from lots of small- and medium-sized donations. This panel of artists, entrepreneurs and community leaders have collectively raised nearly $500,000 in funds last year alone from individual donors.

The Panel:
Shamayim ‘Mama Shu’ Harris – Exec. Directress, The Avalon Village
Paulina Petkoski, Exec. Director, PLAYGROUND DETROIT
Pastor Aramis Hinds, Exec. Director, Bethel Community Transformation Center
Justin Wedes, Founder and CEO, The Liberati Group

This is a free discussion but please RSVP to join us! We’ll have snacks for you –>
