Crowdcentric Networking Mixer! @ Parlor

  • August 21, 2012 · 6:30 PM

We're happy to announce our first meetup networking mixer. Mingle at this exclusive club with other entrepreneurs, creatives and business professionals.

RSVPs are a must. Must be 21. Space is limited, so if you decide you cannot attend, be kind and cancel your RSVP.

The event is brought to you by The Crowdcentric Network, Crowdzu, SCENEPR! & the Williamsburg International Film Festival [WILLiFEST].

Seductive beats and sexy ambience provide the perfect social backdrop for guests to mingle, converse and maybe even dance a little, tossing back well tended drinks by Parlor's great bartenders.

    I really liked it, but the music was way too loud! This was a networking event so we needed to talk and listen! A discounted bar would have been nice, especially in this economy. The hosts could have made it a point to introduce the attendees to each other, after ascertianing what each person wanted. All in all, a very good event but I only got four busienss cards although I gave out many more. The people were varied and interesting.

    Hi Tim. A friend of mine just emailed me this link, which is to a tool that someone came up with to analyze success/failure of kickstarted projects:

    http://www.crowdsourcing.org/editorial/kickback-machine-shows-kickstarter-successes-and-failures/18052

    Here's a quote describing the thing:

    "The Kickback Machine is very simple to use. Visitors can select a category to examine (Games, Music, Theater, etc.), and also look into sub-categories, all of which correspond with Kickstarter’s own verticals. They can filter the results by the target amount, and by whether the project reached that target."

    Maybe also useful/relevant to your question.

      I love TheKickbackMachine.com. The only problem with the website is that it only scrapes Kickstarter data from June of this year when it launched. But going forward, it is a pretty awesome tool to see what works and doesn't on Kickstarter.

    What type of category (film, product development etc.) has been the most successful at raising funds?

      Tim, the answer to that question depends on your definition of success. On Kickstarter, in terms of percentage of posted projects that meet their funding goal DANCE is at the top of the heap. In terms of total number of projects funded, the top category is MUSIC. And then, of course there are the projects that raise many times their funding goal and exceed the magic one million dollar mark... and in that stratosphere there is just one true creative project: Amanda Palmer's album/art book/tour. The other seven are what I would call geek projects (Think Pebble Watch, Ouya, Double Fine Adventure) even if one was a comic book. Of course, there are plenty of other crowdfunding platforms out there and there are extremely successful projects on other platforms that would not be accepted by Kickstarter (for instance the fundraiser for the abused bus monitor).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
