Equity Crowdfunding Bootcamp (4 weeks)

July 25 @ 11:00 - 13:00 CDT

Learn how to set up, market, launch and run an equity crowdfunding campaign in this 4-week bootcamp.

Running a successful equity crowdfunding campaign involves a lot more than just creating a few marketing assets, standing up a web page, and hoping for investors. It requires advance preparation, a fundable company, sharpened marketing, a carefully orchestrated launch, and ongoing investor engagement.

To underscore this point, consider these facts:

  1. 21% of equity crowdfunding campaigns fail to meet the minimum target (meaning they raise $0)
  2. The median amount raised is $104K. About half of all crowdfunding campaigns raise less than $100K.
  3. The average raise was $366K, 3.5x higher than the median.
  4. The 3.5x variance between the average and the median is huge. It means the vast majority of raises were underwhelming. But, it also means the top 20% shined, raising over half a million dollars!

If you want to be part of that top 20%, then sign up for our bootcamp, learn the process used by successful crowdfunding campaigns, implement the best practices, and lean on experts to guide your journey.

If going through this bootcamp helps you take your crowdfunding raise from $104K to $366K, that $262K increase would be a 529x to 888x return on your bootcamp ticket fee.
