Rewards strategy virtual coworking session

Crowdfunding rewards are the products and services you offer through your crowdfunding campaign, at different price points, in exchange for monetary contribution from your funders. A well planned rewards strategy can supercharge your campaign as your rewards should be a) things people actually want, and b) priced correctly.  Join us and IFundWomen Startup Coach, Alex Brockelman to learn how to strategically design rewards that will get your campaign funded.

AMA: Access to capital during a crisis w/Martha Miller

Capital plays a critical role in starting and growing your company. Entrepreneurs have a few options when it comes to accessing capital; however, each option presents unique challenges.

In this workshop, led by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Small Business Advocate, Martha Miller, learn about the resources the SEC has available for small businesses, especially in the time of crisis or downturn. In addition, learn to leverage the SEC's tools to help your company access capital under the federal securities laws. Join us for an introduction, and a plain English conversation!
