Crowdfunding Like A Boss: Raising Money On Hype

Mar 12, 2017

3:30pm – 5:00pm CT

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under “Primary Access.”

"Crowdfunding Like a Boss" teaches you how to be an audacious crowdfunding storyteller. It's about creating the right kind of hype around you and your brand. Toni Morgan is a recent Harvard graduate who made international news when her crowdfunding campaign to pay for her Ivy League tuition went viral. She raised over $100K in 48 hours from 1300 complete strangers. In her session, Toni will walk audiences through the lessons she's learned, launching numerous viral campaigns and introducing aspiring crowdfunders to the underpinnings of successful crowdfunding stories. Attendees will leave with strategies for storytelling, donor conversion and a "how-to" guide on audacious crowdfunding.
