Crowdfunding via the web is turning the old business model on its head! MMIC invites you to join us for this intensive three-day Crowd Camp to bring your best idea to the crowd. With professional guidance from RocketHub, MMIC and SPARK, you'll leave with an expert-reviewed campaign ready to launch your own crowdfunded project. 

Camp Highlights

  • RocketHub's co-founders Brian Meece, CEO, and Alon Hillel-Tuch, CFO, outline the exciting possibilities of crowdfunding
  • Learn to build a campaign with perks that funders want, how to build your crowd and what to expect after you are funded
  • Present your winning new campaign and get inspired by what other campers have created

Crowd out your competition using crowdfunding to build your business. Join the collaborative economy where ideas, investment and impact meet. RocketHub is an online business accelerator that optimizes this new form of commerce, enabling entrepreneurs to harness the wisdom and resources of the crowd. Crowdfunding is rapidly evolving from donation models with premiums as rewards to equity models of shared ownership. New legislation at federal and state levels opens the system for small investors to finance worthy startups, bringing democratic access to capital to small businesses. With millions of dollars in potential investment at stake, it's time to take advantage of this game-changer where social, economic and technological energies collide!
