Event Overview

Kickstarter connects a community of passionate backers of great projects with innovators looking for funding for their “next big thing.” Since 2009, users have pledged over $250 million to projects they thought ruled, and as a result 24,000 projects that started as simple ideas have become realities.

If you have the “next big idea,” Kickstarter is what you've been looking for because it works—and this class shows why and how. Harness Kickstarter to run rockstar campaigns that will fund and market your project.

This class shows:
• How to create and run a successful Kickstarter project
• Best practices for copy-writing & video
• Realistic, deliverable rewards and premiums
• Achieving Kickstarter-specific goals
• Social media promotion and publicity
• Case-studies on avoiding common pitfalls

Walk away understanding which projects succeed on Kickstarter, and grasping the “rules of play.”

    A very thorough, detailed explanation of what Kickstarter is and how it works. My class ended up in something of a group discussion as he q&a's went on

    Detailed explanation of objectives, methodology and opportunities. Handled questions well. Thoughtful arrangement of presentation, analysis of subject. Touched on issues that had not occurred to me but which I now recognize as important for Kickstarter success. In short, I think I got more than I paid for.
