What we're about

This group is for anyone who is interested in using Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or another crowdfunding platform to launch a project. This group acts as a support network for members where they can connect and collaborate with like-minded people. Additionally, we explore the crowdfunding industry by hosting talks and workshops with the intent of creating a rich framework for members of the group.

"Some people dream about success; others work hard at it."

If you would like to help organize events or present on crowdfunding topics, send me an email: .

We've successfully launched our first Kickstarter ( in 2016 and will share tips at one of our upcoming meetings.

Technical Focus:
We're especially interested in reaching technical entrepreneurs who want to improve their skills. If you're interested in programming, also join our main Code Self Study ( group. It's open to programmers of all levels, from complete beginners to professional programmers. The common theme is that we are entrepreneurs who will put in whatever levels of work and technical study that are required to achieve success. This group is part of the Code Self Study network.
