Are You Ready for Startup Equity Crowdfunding?

May 23 @ 11:00 - 13:00 CDT

Struggling to raise funds from VCs? This event will clarify your crowdfunding potential & share a proven blueprint for crowdfunding success.

After a record-breaking number of registrations for our first event on equity crowdfunding, the message from our audience was clear:

Founders are ready to raise startup capital from alternative funding sources.

This readiness is emerging at a moment when alternative sources of capital are more plentiful than ever. Among the alternatives, equity crowdfunding is the most popular option.

Crowdfunding is also ~75x more likely to provide founders with key capital than traditional investors. But here’s the catch:

Crowdfunding isn’t as simple as launching a campaign on Wefunder and recording an announcement video on your smartphone.

Without a clear plan on how to prepare your crowdfunding campaign and intelligently promote your company, it’s very likely that your crowdfunding round will be an absolute flop.

If you lack clarity on your crowdfunding potential or a proven plan for driving crowdfunding success, Fundable Startups has you covered!

In this 2-hour event, we’ll breakdown who’s most suited for a crowdfunding round and we’ll provide a proven blueprint for crowdfunding success.

This blueprint was built by our event co-hosts Chris Lustrino and Brian Belley from the KingsCrowd team.

This is the same blueprint that Chris has personally deployed to raise over $7M through equity crowdfunding campaigns.

Just last month, Chris used this same blueprint to raise ~$1.5M in a crowd / Reg D round for KingsCrowd.

Beyond Chris’s personal success with this blueprint, Brian has solidified its foundations with data from over 8,000 crowdfunding campaigns run by other startups.

For founders tired of being ignored or rejected by traditional investors, this event will clarify a new path for your startup to gather the crucial capital and market attention it deserves.

Founders who join this event will receive:

  1. The proven blueprint for successful crowdfunding campaigns
  2. Exclusive fundraising insights from 8,000+ startup crowdfunding campaigns
  3. A breakdown on how to determine if crowdfunding is right for your startup
  4. Special access to a crowdfunding bootcamp for qualified founders

Only 100 founders will be allowed to attend this event, and the first 10 to register will receive the crowdfunding blueprint for only $49. Register today!

KingsCrowd is your partner in startup fundraising success.

Tap into our data-driven insights, founder resources, investor network, and educational tools to fuel your crowdfunding journey and build a thriving business.

Joining us in this event are Chris Lustrino and Brian Belley from KingsCrowd.
