Crowdfunding to Build Independence - Houston, TX
Event  Oct 27 18:00–19:30 · The Rice University Media Center University Blvd and Stockton Houston, TX 77005

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.

Il corso è rivolto a giovani, professionisti ed operatori dell’enogastronomia che vogliano valorizzare idee e progetti, coinvolgendo la loro comunità.

Il Crowdfunding letteralmente finanziamento dal basso è uno strumento di finanziamento partecipativo e democratico che ha raccolto un forte consento nazionale ed internazionali finanziando nel mondo oltre 5 miliardi di dollari in progetti.

Il confronto diretto e costante proprio delle comunità territoriali, dei rioni dove sono nate imprese ristorative oggi note nel mondo, rinasce e si rafforza on line, attraverso i diversi canali social media.

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

    "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.

    Programma
    ore 20:00 introduzione
    ore 20:10 inizio proiezione
    ore 21:00 dibattito e open discussion

    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.

    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.
