    Women have been benched in the equity funding game. But it’s time they took the field. Equity crowdfunding is a whole new way of building teams to support and invest in women-owned businesses.

    In this panel discussion, you’ll learn the rules of this new game and how women can win at it, giving them the financing they need to build their businesses and accredited investors the opportunity to invest in a market that is outperforming all-male teams.

    If you are a woman sitting on the sidelines of growth, come join us as we discuss the Stand Out In the Crowd: How Women (and Men) Benefit From Equity Crowdfunding, a research report by Ventureneer, which provides tangible and actionable advice with deliverables, including industry benchmarks, case studies, social media best practices, key insights into how women approach investing, and expert advice from women entrepreneurs who have successfully crowdfunded.

    If you are an investor looking for better ROI, join us to learn why investing in women-led teams is a smart investment decision. Using Stand Out In the Crowd as a starting point, a panel of experts will address the reasons people shy away from raising capital or investing via equity crowdfunding platforms, and why that reluctance can be misplaced. The panel will talk about successes, lessons learned, and how equity crowdfunding can change the game for both business leaders and investors.

    Digifest 2015
    Event  May 7 09:00 – May 9 17:00

    In 2015 we see the realization of certain dreams and nightmares from the past 100 years, including: a totally aware Big Brother, money grasped from “thin air” through computational force and festival headlining celebrity holograms. Join us as we explore these issues:

    Privacy

    In an era of big data, the battle for privacy is ongoing – personal data is routinely collected and traded with few effective controls over how it is used. Which information security and privacy threats should we be most concerned with?

    Money

    The new generation of currency looks nothing like its past. Technology is transforming money as we know it – cryptocurrenices, P2P economies, crowdfunding – are all reshaping our world. Will these technologies empower people or support traditional financial powers?

    Pleasure

    Aristotle is credited with first classifying the five senses that we know best: touch, smell, taste, hearing, and vision. Our senses allow us to understand our immediate world. How are new technologies expanding, repairing or rewiring the human senses to create different understanding of the world?

    Understanding Equity Crowdfunding Including Reg A+
    Event  May 11 18:00–21:00 · EisnerAmper LLP- New York 750 3rd Avenue 16th Floor New York, NY 10017

    Under the federal securities laws, a company may not offer or sell securities unless the offering has been registered with the SEC or an exemption from registration is available. The all-encompassing definition of “security” means that many startups and small businesses, in their attempt to raise capital, may be violating the federal and/or state securities laws by offering non-exempt securities without registration.

    In this presentation, R. Shawn McBride will discuss basic concepts in securities law that entrepreneurs need to be aware of and some of the most common types of exempt offerings, such as offerings under Regulation D, Regulation A/A+, and the much-heralded crowdfunding exemption under the JOBS Act and state laws.

    Shawn will end with a Q&A session, followed by networking with appetizers and drinks served by our host EisnerAmper LLP.

    Crowdfunding Marketing Basics
    Event  May 22 15:20–16:50 · City College of SF, Chinatown Campus 808 Kearny St. San Francisco, CA 94108

    Need funding for a project or product? This session will give you a high-level overview of how crowdfunding platforms, such as Kickstarter, work. Some crowdfunding applications have an all-or-nothing model, which means your project must be fully funded or you get nothing. This is what makes your pre-campaign marketing strategies so critical. Currently, less than 50% of crowdfunding projects are successfully funded. This means that it is imperative that you consider how to create and leverage your key promotional components, such as your video, your personal story, your contacts and your crowdfunding rewards/perks. It also means that you need to become comfortable with selling not only your product, but also yourself.

    Masterclass: How to Run a Successful Crowdfunding Campaign
    Event  May 30 11:00–12:00 · Arthouse Uto 3 Kalkbreitestrasse 8003 Zürich Switzerland

    Speakers
    For the last 2 years, Andrea Holle (PR specialist and director of Mobile Motion Film Festival) and Simon Horrocks (independent filmmaker, digital content producer) have between them run 12 crowdfunding campaigns, the majority of which were successful, raising $63,000 (60,000 CHF). Even the two failures, which still succeeded in receiving over $19,000 (18,000 CHF) in donations, provided valuable lessons.

    Content
    Many campaigns fail due to a lack of planning or an assumption that backers come as soon as you press the launch button. There’s often a belief by first-time campaigners it’s simply a matter of describing your project and backers will be in a rush to hand over their money. If you make this mistake, you are unlikely to reach your goal.

    In this masterclass, Andrea and Simon will reveal how they used social media (mostly twitter) to generate interest in their campaigns.

    Civic crowdfunding voor ondernemende overheden
    Hoe crowdfunding de relatie tussen burger en overheid verandert

    Steeds meer overheden en woningcorporaties ontdekken de mogelijkheden van crowdfunding. Samen met burgers kunnen maatschappelijke en ruimtelijke projecten van de grond komen die het leven in steden, dorpen en buurten verrijken.

    Deze zogeheten ‘civic crowdfunding’ is een van de meest dynamische segmenten van crowdfunding. Want civic crowdfunding schuurt. Tegen bestaande beleids- en planvorming. Tegen bestaande financieringsmechanismen. Tegen bestaande democratische besluitvorming. Overheden gaan daarom (nog) onwennig om met civic crowdfunding en zoeken naar hun rol in dit veranderende speelveld.

    Event  Aug 26 08:30 – Aug 27 18:00 · BPPT Auditorium BADAN PENGKAJIAN DAN PENERAPAN TEKNOLOGI Jalan MH.Thamrin 8 Jakarta, Indonesia 10340 Indonesia

    Crowdfunding is a way for businesses or projects to raise money by inviting lots of people to pledge or invest small amounts, usually online. It’s a form of alternative finance, which means that it doesn’t involve traditional banks.

    The crowdfunding industry is exploding with entrepreneurs, investors, portal operators, third party service providers and experts from around the world who are all jockeying for position to take advantage of a promising and brand new fundraising channel for SMEs and creative or social projects.

    Taking on the rapid growth of Crowdfunding in other parts of the world other than Asia, Phoenixict™ decided to get rooted to “advocate, promote, evangelize and educate” the Crowd by creating – CrowdFunding Asia™ Summit (www.CFAsia.org). The first-ever Singapore Summit that took place on 4th and 5th August 2014, brought together the regulators, innovators, startups, investors and general public to play the global catch up game; where equity and lending crowdfunding regulations are now actively pursued, donation and reward crowdfunding platform providers are finding their uniqueness and positioning to world leaders like Kickstarters and Indiegogo. Recent summit held in Bangkok, Thailand 10th to 11th February was another proven success that countries across Asean are learning to embrace Crowdfunding for all great reasons.
