CROWDFUNDING WORKSHOP

Show Me The Money!!

Christa Fairchild, Director of Marketing for Vrvana



Crowdfunding has become THE biggest trend in financial support for small business. With a seemingly endless list of projects launched every day, it seems like a pot of gold without sacrificing equity. Since launching in 2009, over $1.22 billion has been pledged through Kickstarter by more than 6.6 million people, funding over 69,000 creative projects.

Through her own experiences, Christa shares the benefits and pitfalls of using crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding to Build Independence - Indie Memphis
Event  Nov 2 12:00–14:00 · Hattiloo Theatre 37 South Cooper Memphis, TN 38104

The only proven path to independence as an artist is a direct connection to your audience. Crowdfunding is becoming a fundamental piece of most financing plans for independent film. However, many filmmakers miss the opportunity to turn their film funding campaigns into audience-building opportunities that can last an entire career — and provide the groundwork for theatrical distribution that you control. Seed&Spark and Tugg are combining forces to invest in the future of independent film by offering a comprehensive Crowdfunding to Build Independence workshop. This two-hour session for film-related projects will provide the crowdfunding action plan most likely to create a lasting, flourishing, direct relationship with your audience.

International workshop on crowdsourcing and service management (CROWDSERV 2014)
Event  Nov 3 · Paris

CrowdServ Workshop @ ICSOC'14



Call for papers

CrowdServ: International Workshop on Crowdsourcing and Service Management

(co-located with the International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, ICSOC'14)

https://sites.google.com/site/crowdserv14/
Paris, November, 3-6, 2014

Background and Objectives

Recently, crowdsourcing has been widely adopted in academia and industry alike, as a new paradigm for enlisting members of the general public to perform tasks that cannot be performed correctly by machines, and/or are traditionally undertaken by dedicated employees. Typical applications are in data collection, classification and/or enrichment. Crowdsourcing is often subdividing tedious work into small work units, a.k.a. micro-tasks. It combines the efforts of numerous self-identified volunteers or part-time workers, where each contributor of their own initiative adds a small portion to the greater result.



The objective of the first edition of CrowdServ which will be co-located with the International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC) at Paris Dauphine University is to bring together researchers and practitioners from the service oriented computing arena to discuss two fundamental issues:


  • how crowdsourcing can be leveraged to support the efficient and effective management and integration of Sservices, and

  • how crowd and automatic services can be integrated and intertwined to obtain optimal results

    Startup Grind Madison Hosts Henry Schwartz (MobCraft Beer)
    Event  Nov 5 18:00–21:00 · 100state 30 West Mifflin St Madison, WI 53703

    For the love of beer! That's what drew Henry Schwartz to not take a job after college, spend his life savings on a 7bbl fermentation tank and create America's first crowdsourced brewery in Madison, WI. On November 5th, Startup Grind Madison will host a social and fireside chat with Henry and invite you to join us for our first of many monthly meetings to come!

    After dabbling in home-brewing between classes as an entrepreneurship student at UW-Whitewater, Henry and friends started brewing 5 gal batches using wacky ingredient ideas suggested by family and friends. The brews were delicious and shockingly unique. Green tea & blood-orange infused Hefeweizens, anyone?

    Small-time popularity among friends and family inspired them to start Mobcraft, which lets the customer play brewmaster. Mobcraft solicits recipe suggestions for their next month's special brew on their website, then customers vote on their favorite idea and crowdsource which beer gets brewed.

    Most recently, Mobcraft medaled at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival in September with their brew - Batshit Crazy - a coffee cream nut brown ale. The three recent grads -- two business-majors, one micro-biologist--have been located in Madison, WI since 2013 making their monthly brews for thousands of loyal customers around the state.

    Join us at 100State on November 5th for a fireside chat and social with Henry as we talk about his new business along with the challenges and joys that come with running a new brewery.

    And did we mention Henry's bringing beer? He recently brewed a special 100state ale by crowdsourcing the 100state member's opinions.

    Doors open at 6. Fireside chat starts at 7. Social to follow at 8. See you there!

    "La strada verso Olympia": un film per parlare di accessibilità, Expo e crowdfunding
    Event  Nov 5 20:00–22:30 · Talent Garden Brescia 66 Via Cipro 25100 Brescia Italia

    Sogni, accessibilità, Expo, crowdfunding: sembrano argomenti lontani eppure durante l'incontro in programma a Talent Garden Brescia mercoledì 5 novembre alle ore 20 troveranno una ragione per essere affrontati tutti insieme.

    L'Expo imminente promette venti milioni di visitatori, una folla pronta a invadere Milano. Che arriverà su treni, aerei, automobili. Che dormirà in hotel, B&B, residence. Che si trasferirà su taxi, bus, metro. Scontato per i cosiddetti normodotati. Ma cosa significa viaggiare nell'Europa dell'A.D. 2014 per le persone con disabilità? Perché è ancora così complicato e costoso fare quello che a tutti invece pare la normale quotidianità come spostarsi o divertirsi? Cosa serve per realizzare il sogno di una vita e assistere al concerto della propria band preferita nel tempio del pop/rock parigino? E come fare a realizzarlo partendo da zero euro di budget a disposizione? Un'esperienza che abbiamo vissuto davvero e che abbiamo deciso di raccontare attraverso il documentario La Strada verso l'Olympia, dopo le proiezioni a Roma alla Casa del Cinema a Villa Boghese e alla Camera dei Deputati e a Milano lo scorso 16 settembre, il documentario arriva a Brescia con la protagonista Eleonora Riggi, con il regista Michele Bizzi, la producer Claudia di Lascia e, insieme a loro - per discutere di crowdfunding e su come trasformare i sogni in progetti - Ivana Pais e Nicola Palmarini.

    ore 20:00 introduzione

Seed&Spark and Tugg are combining forces to invest in the future of independent film by offering a comprehensive Crowdfunding to Build Independence workshop. This two-hour session for film-related projects will provide the crowdfunding action plan most likely to create a lasting, flourishing, direct relationship with your audience.

    WORLD USABILITY DAY IS NOVEMBER 13, 2014!

    2014 IS THE YEAR OF ENGAGEMENT.


    User Experience is all about engagement. Technology, products and services are usable when they engage people. At work we strive to engage with those around us—whether they’re users, colleagues, or stakeholders. It means getting people on board with an idea, earning trust, and working toward mutual goals. We all know how challenging that can be.

    This is the year to think out of the box. How can you engage people to use technology products and services? What kind of design thinking needs to be incorporated, to keep people engaged? How can you engage those outside our field, to understand the importance of a good user experience? Can we engage people to help changes those things that are not working well?

    Fear & Fail Crowdfunding Conference
    Event  Nov 14 12:00–20:00 · Ulica Štefana Kovača 43 Murska Sobota Slovenia

    Fear & Fail @ Crowdfunding Conference will present failed crowdfunding stories that are now successful businesses. Hearing their mistakes will enable you to learn from them and avoid taking the same path.

    You did everything right to get the business rolling, but so far no results. Or maybe … you didn’t get the job; you couldn’t raise the money; you missed the deadline; you hired the wrong person; you didn’t ask for help; you let down someone you love. The list is endless! When our mistakes stare at us in the face, we often find it so upsetting that we miss out on the primary benefits of failing (yes, benefits).

    Anyone can relate with project fails and that makes it easier for all of us to learn. There is nothing wrong with being unsuccessful as many failed campaigns achieve success in the end. Fear & Fail is a safe place where we openly talk about fails. This time a selected few speakers will present their failed crowdfunding campaigns and what they learned. All talks are in English so anyone is welcome to visit the conference or view our live-stream.

    Minnesota Rising 2014 Un/Conference: The Future Is How
    Event  Nov 15 10:00–16:30 · DLR Group Minneapolis 520 Nicollet Mall Suite 200 Minneapolis, MN 55402

    2014 Theme: The Future Is How

    "The future is not out there in front of us, but inside of us." -Macy in Feinstein & Krippner

    In studying demographic trends and technological shifts, and crowd-sourcing visions of what's to come for Minnesota, the rising generation could surmise that the future is out there somewhere waiting to happen to us. And yet, seeing signs that our generation has already begun to impact and alter business as usual, we recognize the potential we have to bring about a future that is truly borne of us, our imaginations, and our ongoing commitment to Minnesota.

    Our approach honors that the only constant is change, which calls for an emergent style of learning and leadership. Rather than built to last, young Minnesotans now see value in being built to adapt. To be at the ready to leverage what comes our way, we consider it critical to recognize that the future is how:

    -how we stay open to learning and welcome new ways of doing things over the course of a lifetime
    -how we are kind to and forgive ourselves and others as we trip up along the way
    -how we arm ourselves to make wise decisions for the benefit of all
    -how we can cultivate satisfaction with less in a culture that increasingly demands more
    -how we seek opportunities to include and invest in voices and perspectives that are distinct from our own experiences
    -how we shed the belief that we know what leadership looks like (and if you don’t bear a resemblance, you’re not a leader) to allow ever more people and more expansive ways of contributing and giving to flourish

    The future is in us, individually and collectively, and is slowly being uncovered in the questions asked, process undertaken, and relationships formed across the rising generation. Join us in exploring how!

    Event  Nov 17 08:30–17:30 · Antwerpen Elzenveld hotel & seminarie Lange Gasthuisstraat 45 2000 Antwerp België

    TRANSPARANTIE IN JE ORGANISATIE noodzakelijk kwaad of hefboom ?

    Tegenwoordig kan je geen HR magazine of vakblad meer openslaan of het gaat over inzetten op meer employee engagement, de noodzaak om te innoveren, samenwerken met stakeholders, nieuwe markten aanboren of producten ontwikkelen…genoeg uitdagingen op je bord.

    Een belangrijke randvoorwaarde om dit effectief en vanuit een win-win te kunnen realiseren, is blijvend inzetten op transparantie in je communicatie en je bedrijfsvoering. Essentieel voor jou als CxO, bedrijfsleider, HR-directeur/ manager of als lid van een Raad van Bestuur.

    Hoe transparant gaat het eraan toe in jouw bedrijf ? Welke uitdagingen brengt dit mee ? Wat werkt er, wat niet ? Hoe gaan je collega’s hiermee om? Tijdens ons event kan je hierover van gedachten wisselen en inspiratie opdoen.

    Crowdcube is the largest Crowdfunding site in the World
    Event  Nov 19 11:00–13:00 · Innovation Space 1 Hampshire Terrace Portsmouth PO1 2QF United Kingdom

    James Chalk comes to talk to us about how to raise funds and what are the most successful entrepreneurs.

    As the world’s first and most successful investment crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube enables entrepreneurs to bypass the traditional business angel, venture capital or bank finance routes, giving them more control and access to more investors. For investors, Crowdcube provides them with a way to cherry-pick a stake in an innovative business that traditionally would have been restricted to corporate investors. In addition, they can now benefit from a fixed return per annum by lending money to more established companies offering a mini-bond on Crowdcube.

    Since February 2011, more than 100,000 savvy investors have registered with Crowdcube, helping to raise almost £42 million of equity finance for over 150 UK business pitches.

    Investing involves risk and should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Investing equity in start-ups and early stage businesses involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment and dilution. Mini-bonds can be unsecured, non-convertible and non-transferable. Crowdcube is targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand these risks and make their own investment decisions.

    Event  Dec 11 18:00–21:00 · Hacker Dojo 599 Fairchild Dr. Mountain View, CA 94043

    Part of our series featuring senior level executives with deep ties to Japan.

    The Lean Startup movement has taken Silicon Valley by storm, transforming how companies create and refine new products. It emphasizes better understanding of customer needs, creating a “minimum viable product” and then iterating based on real feedback that comes directly from customers.

    The Lean Startup concept has its roots in the Toyota Production System, and our speaker Vinuth Rai of Toyota InfoTechnology Center brought things full circle when he and his team introduced Lean Startup techniques into Toyota to help develop the next generation of in-car information and entertainment systems.

    After familiarizing us with the key elements of the Lean Startup approach, Vinuth will share his team’s journey to innovate within the Toyota system. He’ll describe how they did their first Lean Startup experiment (crowdsourcing customers for a trial on Craigslist), and how they are working to mesh their efforts with the mainstream product development process within Toyota. We’ll get an in-depth look at how intrapreneurs can work to create change, and some of the lessons that Vinuth and his team have learned from their work.
