What will you learn during this evening?
Looking to raise funds? How do you do that? Find out through which lens a funder will look at your project, such as what they think about educational and participation projects. You will hear more about alternative sources of incomes, such as crowdfunding, sponsoring and partner deals. With all the tips & tricks provided, you will soon know how to find financial backers for your project. Oh yes, and bring your smartphone with you, as we’ll be using that.
