Startup Stories: My Success as a Crowdfunding Entrepreneur

http://shade7publishing.com/

Join School for Creative Startups for an inspirational talk from School for Creative Startups alumni Hajera Memon, founder of Shade 7 Publishing.

Hajera will share with us her journey as a Muslim woman in the entrepreneurial world, and how she came to launch the world's first Qua'ranic Pop-up children's book through a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign.

Learn first hand about crowdfunding, tips to get you started, what it takes to put together a successful campaign, and have the opportunity to ask Hajera about the adventure of launching her publishing business with the support of School for Creative Startups. Please do take a look at Shade 7's website:

My guest got there in time and was so thankful for being there too. You were swooned over after your presentation and I couldn't barged in, I had to run for my next appointment... so if you could send us a link to your presentation, that would be very useful to us all and much appreciated. Also, thanks so much, School for Creative Startups!

    Having to meet successful people in their ventures and witness their enthusiasm by sharing their stories is inspiring, as well as encouraging more people to set in their footsteps, hence more successes and stories are shared and heard!
