Crowdfunding 2.0 - The Game Changer
We’ve lived with the donor form of Crowdfunding via IndieGoGo and Kickstarter for years. Now, thanks to the JOBS Act, there is a new form of Crowdfunding – one in which fans can become investors (not merely donors.) The JOBS Act may revolutionize independent media financing in the same way that cheap technology and the Internet revolutionized production and distribution. This session is well-timed to coincide with the SEC’s release of the new Crowdfunding rules.
Brian Meece plays a mean ukulele and is the CEO of RocketHub, one
of the world's top crowdfunding platforms. He has presented on
crowdsourced funding at SXSW, TEDxBrooklyn, Columbia University,
Makers Faire, among other colleges, conferences and institutions. His
goal? To teach creative entrepreneurs how to leverage the crowd for funding their endeavors.
