The goal of the KC Crowdfunding Group is to create a community to support each other and to be a resource for those interested in having a project crowdfunded using a website like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo.  We are focused on helping projects get to the launch stage.  We are not a place for live projects to be pitched.  

Our monthly meetings will include a guest speaker who has had a project funded or has expertise in a related field like small business startups, social media marketing, website or video creation, etc.

We will also give time to 2 projects that are in development to be submitted to one of the crowdfunding sites.  This will give the creators a chance to test their pitch and get feedback from the group.


Our monthly agenda would look something like this:


6:30 - Arrive, network


6:45 - Meeting begins with guest speaker / Q & A


7:15 - First crowdfunding presentation & feedback from the group


7:45 - Second crowdfunding presentation & feedback from the group


8:30 - Meeting adjourned



These are some of the common questions that will be discussed:


What is the best platform for my project to appear on?

What are the advantages / disadvantages of each platform?

What is needed to create my campaign?  Photos, Drawings, Videos, Copy / descriptions?

How can I best tell my story to potential backers?

Is my project a good fit for crowdfunding?

How do I figure out what my goal should be?

What should my perks be and at what price should I set them for?

What are the best strategies for setting up my rewards?

What should I be prepared to do once my campaign begins?

How can I use social media and press to help spread the word?

What should I be prepared to do after my campaign ends?

How to be prepared to distribute our rewards to my backers?

What pitfalls should I be aware of?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
