September

YouPaidFor.IT Launch Party - Holding Politicians Accountable
Event  Sep 3 18:00–21:00 · Nashville Entrepreneur Center, 41 Peabody Street, Nashville, TN 37210, United States

Crowdsourcing Political Accountability

We have been successfully divided along partisan lines. Democrats hate Republicans. Republicans hate Democrats. Libertarians can't stand Democrats or Republicans.

But there is one thing we agree on...the government is spending our money like there is no tomorrow!

Thousands of Americans angry with politicians, and wish there was something they could do about it, but individually have no way to voice outrage.



Solution? Crowdsourcing Issues & Capital


The sole purpose of YouPaidFor.IT is informing voters of what politicians are up to with our money. By leveraging modern technology and crowdsourcing issues and capital, it's very reasonable to assume we can wake up enough voters to hold politicians accountable.

Come to the launch party on September 3rd to learn more about how you can be involved, the in depth logic behind YouPaidFor.IT, and meet like-minded people looking for a solution.



Drinks & Food Are On Us!

Crowdfunding (and Crowdsourcing) for Charities
Event  Sep 4 09:30–13:00 · Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

In essence, crowdfunding allows people and organisations to fund their activities by tapping a large number of individuals from the general public (the ‘crowd’) for financial capital, whereby each individual tends to provide only a small amount of their own money. Most crowdfunding happens online, with the help of crowdfunding platforms, which bring together fund-seekers and backers. By also drawing upon their backers for non-financial support (e.g. ideas, advice, contacts, moral support, etc.), fund-seekers can combine crowdfunding with crowdsourcing, an activity that allows them to gain additional value from the large crowd.

The masterclass will introduce the concepts of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing, before exploring the opportunities and challenges of crowdfunding for charities. Subsequently, the class will examine the fundraising process by considering examples of successful and less successful crowdfunding campaigns. Finally,it will delve into a discussion of the non-financial benefits that crowdfunding can provide to charities and how these could best be obtained and managed.
