Webinar: Crowdfunding for The Local Food Startup Challenge

The Local Food Startup Challenge - Crowdfunding Webinar

Propel Your Local Food Startup with Crowdfunding


Sometimes it seems like crowdfunding is just for new digital devices, iPhone covers and games. But crowdfunding is a powerful tool to launch local food startups, allowing you to raise capital and increase awareness of your enterprise in an exciting, community-based way.   This webinar, led by a co-founder of our global crowdfunding partner StartSomeGood, will introduce you to both the theory and practice of crowd funding, dispelling misconceptions, exploring case-studies and giving you the knowledge you need to successfully launch or expand your food startup.   Enterprises participating in the Local Food Startup Challenge get additional promotional support and 20% off StartSomeGood’s platform fees.
