Crowdfunding, Kickstarter, and Game Dev

We've got a special presentation for this month's event. Here are the details.

Crowdfunding has taken the Gave Dev community by storm! Or, is it the other way around?

Crowdfunding Columbus meetup group members will present the basics of Crowdfunding with a special focus on Hear stories of success and lessons learned from experienced crowdfunders. Bring your questions and ideas for your own projects. Or, bring your crowdfunding experience to share with the group.

Kickstarter reported over $83 million dollars raised in the Games category last year. There were plenty of larger projects, but it's possible to use Kickstarter to fund smaller game projects, too.

Reminder, if you haven't been to a meeting in a while, we've changed locations. Here's the details.

TechDEC and Metro Data Center share the whole third floor. The sign by the road says TWO Metro Place. The website is There is a good chance we'll be on the first floor, in one of the meeting rooms this time around, as opposed to the third floor like the last few meetups.

As usual, our meetings will start at 1pm (feel free to show up a bit early), and last until everyone goes home (usually around 4pm or 5pm). After the presentation, we'll go back to the socializing and talking about games and game development as always.
