Crowdfunding - March Tech & Social Change Baltimore Meetup

  • Mar 1, 2012 · 6:30 PM

Looking to use Kickstarter, GiveCorps, or another crowdfunding platform to raise money for your organization's new project? If so, come to the Tech & Social Change Baltimore meeting in March. Justin Kownacki -- a freelance business strategist, writer, and the founder of -- will answer your questions about running a successful campaign. His lessons are based on his own firsthand experience, having successfully crowdfunded the launch of his web sitcom, The Baristas, and on his interviews with other entrepreneurs who've successfully crowdfunded their own books, products, startups, live events, medical bills (!) and more.

Thank you to WYPR for hosting our event. Plenty of parking should be available. They recommend parking in front of the building instead of in the lot in behind it.

    Great information and presentation. Enjoyed the evening's discussion. Now, I have a better understanding about Kickstarter, GiveCorps, and other crowdfunding platforms work.
