Fundraise Smarter

Crowdfunding Education, Courtesy of WeDidIt

Great news. We’re hosting a Webinar and an In-Person seminar.

Our in-person event is happening on October 3rd at 6pm at the Wix Lounge in NYC. It’s a deep introduction to crowdfunding. Attendees will receive: Ideas, courtesy of the WeDidIt team & refreshments courtesy of the Brooklyn Brewery.

The webinar will take place on September 26th on the internet. It will cover the same material as the in-person seminar for the people who can’t make it to NYC on October 3rd.

Both will be educational. Ideas will be discussed. We hope any/all of you can make it. Follow the links above for attendance.

Here’s why we’re doing it.

Let’s start with one of my all-time favorite quotes:

“Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people.”

- Eleanor Roosevelt

Education is one of the most valuable resources we have. It helps us better ourselves, our situations and our surroundings. It rivals experience as one of those things you just can’t have too much of. We’ve spent the past year educating ourselves on crowdfunding. We’ve done it by jumping into the deep end and running crowdfunding campaigns, religiously monitoring the crowdfunding scene, reading everything we can get our hands on and asking questions to everybody who could weigh in.

A goal we’ve had is to become thought leaders - students that become thinkers that become influencers - in the crowdfunding world. In the coming weeks, we’re putting our money where our mouths are and trying to do Eleanor proud. Both the webinar and the seminar are our way of contributing to the crowdfunding mind-space. The goal is to spread our ideas on successful crowdfunding to the people and organizations that need it most.

See you there.

And, for good measure, my second favorite quote:

“One chord is fine. Two chords is pushing it. Three chords and you’re into jazz.”

The music nerds of the world can thank Lou Reed for that one.
