Workshop Crowdfunding - Rennes
Event  Nov 25 09:00–18:00 · Rennes 107, Avenue Henri Fréville 35207 Rennes France

Le crowdfunding ou « financement participatif » bouleverse la levée de fonds traditionnelle et constitue une véritable alternative pour financer son projet et assurer son développement en s’appuyant sur les valeurs et le pouvoir de diffusion du web. Des plateformes comme Kickstarter, Kisskissbankbank, Anaxago ou Ulule, proposent à des milliers d’internautes d’investir dans des projets de nature très diverses, mais pour lesquels ils ont une véritable affinité. Dans un contexte d’accès aux modes de financements défavorables pour les jeunes porteurs de projets, les dirigeants de startup et les PME, le crowdfunding offre une alternative aux financements institutionnels et privés habituels à condition d’en comprendre les enjeux et les contraintes pour formaliser et communiquer son projet de façon attractive.



A l’issue de ce workshop, les participants seront en mesure de :

  • Saisir les logiques associées au financement participatif et comprendre le fonctionnement des plateformes dédiées ;

  • Définir et présenter le modèle d’affaire associé à leur projet de manière à lever les freins potentiels, et à favoriser l’engagement et les soutiens financiers ;

  • Choisir les modalités de financement participatif spécifiques et sélectionner, parmi les différentes plateformes existantes, la plateforme adaptée à leur projet ;

  • Monter une campagne de collecte de fonds via un financement participatif en intégrant les implications économiques, juridiques et fiscales associées.

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.

Workshop Crowdfunding - Rennes
Event  Jan 20 09:00–18:00 · Rennes 107, Avenue Henri Fréville 35207 Rennes France

Le crowdfunding ou « financement participatif » bouleverse la levée de fonds traditionnelle et constitue une véritable alternative pour financer son projet et assurer son développement en s’appuyant sur les valeurs et le pouvoir de diffusion du web. Des plateformes comme Kickstarter, Kisskissbankbank, Anaxago ou Ulule, proposent à des milliers d’internautes d’investir dans des projets de nature très diverses, mais pour lesquels ils ont une véritable affinité. Dans un contexte d’accès aux modes de financements défavorables pour les jeunes porteurs de projets, les dirigeants de startup et les PME, le crowdfunding offre une alternative aux financements institutionnels et privés habituels à condition d’en comprendre les enjeux et les contraintes pour formaliser et communiquer son projet de façon attractive.



A l’issue de ce workshop, les participants seront en mesure de :

  • Saisir les logiques associées au financement participatif et comprendre le fonctionnement des plateformes dédiées ;

  • Définir et présenter le modèle d’affaire associé à leur projet de manière à lever les freins potentiels, et à favoriser l’engagement et les soutiens financiers ;

  • Choisir les modalités de financement participatif spécifiques et sélectionner, parmi les différentes plateformes existantes, la plateforme adaptée à leur projet ;
