PledgeMe Roadie: Company Crowdfunding In Westport (4 July)

Project 2016-06-07 09:32:14 +1200

We're hittin' the road this winter...

Team PledgeMe are road tripping from Invercargill to Kerikeri this winter. We’re doing this to talk shop in all the regions about how companies and organisations can raise funds to grow through equity crowdfunding and crowdlending.

 

Earlier this year we started CrowdfundingU, which is a six-session programme to helps companies ready themselves to raise capital through their crowds. So to kick the winter semester off we’re bringing the first of these sessions to Westport…

 

There's a catch for us to come to your town...

We’re going where our crowd is, meaning we’ve set a minimum goal in how many tickets we need to sell in your region to order lock in this stop. We need a minimum of 20 tickets sold prior to for us to be able to lock in the venue and travel costs.

What are we going to talk about?...

In this session, we’re going to run you through the background of exactly what crowdfunding is. We’ll outline the similarities and differences between the major types of crowdfunding and identify what each means to you as an entrepreneur (hint: the range is dating — to civil union — to full on marriage).

 

Tickets are $10 each (part sponsored by REAP, and down from the normal session price for this CrowdfundingU session is $150).

 

The event details are:

  • Location: Epic Westport, 10a Lyndhurst Street
  • Doors open 5:30pm
  • Event kicks off at 6:00pm
  • Potential for an ad-hoc networking session around 7:30pm (location TBD) 

 

What can you do?

The first thing you can do is the easiest, buy a ticket (by pledging on the right hand side of this page -->) and join us for the night.

Now, who else do you know who might be interested? Let 'em know by sharing this campaign directly with them (and while you’re at it, you could give us a share on your favourite social media channels!)

Also, are there any specific people we should be connecting with in your town who might be able to help us get the word out? Hit up the comment section below, or flick us an email at [email protected]

 

Where else are we going?

Our trip is going the length of the South Island - from Invercargill to Nelson! Here are all our stops along the way:

Hey Westport,

Thanks again for coming along on Monday. During our road trip, we presented to over 200 people across 7 locations, and had a blast meeting you all. We can't wait to get a few more campaigns through from down south.

As promised, here are a few links:

 

Shout out if you have any questions, and we look forward to meeting you all again!

Cheers,
Anna
