Crowdfunding is hot.

Portland is red hot....as a top five leading city in funding Kickstarter crowdfunding projects

These three are BEYOND red hot...Within the realm of local crowdfunding success stories, this gang is lava red, burn your mouth, hot as hell, with each raising over one hundred fifty grand.

How did they do it?

Come join this explosively interactive session as the irreverent and oft time incomprehensible startup founder John Friess (CEO Journey Gym) leads an open conversation with three local founders that have each raised over $150,000 from their Kickstarter projects.

What worked?

What didn't?

What would they do different should they do it all over again? What caught them by surprise? What are their top tips to others considering a crowdfunding campaign? What is their advice regarding other crowdfunding platforms?

How did the spread the word and market it? What was the best and worse advice they'd received before their campaigns? What insights do they have regarding day to day management of a campaign? What are the most important things to do prior to a campaign launch?

Come hear their stories, learn for yourself, and ask your questions.
