Crowdfunding is about more than just raising money. It serves to validate demand, build communities of support, and so much more.
Join us for a panel discussion around how crowdfunding is a tool used to cultivate community by tapping into your existing network and creating a new one. This discussion will focus less on the nuts and bolts of each crowdfunding platform. Attendees will receive a 1-pager takeaway overview of each organization.
Panelists: Razi Jafri (Kiva Zip), Rob St. Mary (Patronicity), Jeff Aronoff (Sidewalk Ventures), Rhiannon Chester (ioby), Shelly Watts (Thoughtful Missions), Todd Kropp (Detroit City Football Club); Joanna Dueweke (Detroit SOUP)
Moderator: David Tessler (Michigan Funders)
