About This Class

What You Will Learn

  • How to run a successful crowdfunding campaign
  • How to build a runway for your project so it gets funded quickly
  • What common mistakes to avoid


Crowdfunding can take a mere idea into the stratosphere. Some of the world’s most famous products have been the result of crowdfunding - the Oculus Rift, Pebble Watch and Ouya are just some examples of successful crowdfunding campaigns. However, behind all successful crowdfunded projects, there's a lot of preparation. Teams often prepare for more than 6 months before the start of their campaign to ensure success.  Collective Campus will be hosting a masterclass that'll go through everything you need to know about running a crowdfunding campaign.  During this masterclass, you will learn 

  • What goes into the pre-campaign preparation phase 
  • How to get your project funded within week-1
  • How to secure PR for your project
  • How to know if your product is a winner
  • What to do during your campaign to maximise your funding 
  • What post-campaign life is like
