Startup meeting on crowdfunding: Meet the expert and two startups with crowdfunding experience 

Join this event to get an overview of the crowdfunding "landscape" and how you can use it to launch your product or service. Learn from other startups how they used crowdfunding to develop marketing and initiate sales.  

Target groups:

This event is open to everyone working in a startup, and curious to learn about crowdfunding and/or wish to launch a crowdfunding campaign. You are willing to share your own knowledge and experience with the other event participants. 

You will meet

Rikke will present the concept and benefits of using crowdfunding to launch your product. She will also share her best tips on how to succeed with your crowdfunding campaign and which platform to use.  

                            Rikke Nielsen

Hear from Audiocase, who in Spring 2022 had a success Kickstarter campaign reaching over 1 million DKK and started shipping their portable sound systems to the backers 9 months later. Søren and Jonas will talk about the process of preparing, running and following up on a crowdfunding launch. They will share their learnings on what it takes to run a successful crowdfunding campaign (and that's a whole lot of work!). 

 

Learn from BeneSit who launched a crowdfunding campaign on IDA Crowdfunding in November 2022, to involve the crowd in the creation of new versions of their product: a chair in a modern and stylish design, which stimulates your back while sitting.
