Back on 2013, I completed a Kickstarter project. It took months to plan, a month to fund and months to complete. For the most part, all went as planned.
Kickstarter is one of the most popular means of crowdfunding because it is rewards-based crowdfunding and it is an all-or-nothing funding model lowers the risk for all parties. It is also great for idea validation.
Many people have a lot of questions about Kickstarter, and they ask about this quite often due to the platform’s popularity. I want to answer your questions about Kickstarter.
I have given a presentation on Kickstarter: Lessons Learned to live audiences multiple times this year and crowdsourced all their questions.
After gathering audience questions, interviewing some other successful Kickstarter creators and compiling thoughts on what it takes to succeed with Kickstarter, I wrote an ebook about it.
Follow this blog if you wish to be notified about the upcoming webinar where I will answer your questions.
On July 26, the first RightsTech Summit will take place in New York City (NYC).
RightsTech Summit (RTS) is a 1-day executive leadership conference that brings together cross-industry leaders focused on furthering technology innovation around rights management and licensing across multiple media verticals. It’s goal is to provide a first class conference for discussion, analysis and debate on emerging technologies and technology-enabled strategies for the management, authentication and monetization of creative rights across diverse media industries.
Henrik de Gyor from Rights.tech will be presenting there as well.
If interested in attending, you can sign up before July 26, 2016 with 10% discount.
Please note that Rights.tech is separate from the RightsTech Summit and they are not affiliated to each other.
Just to be clear, I don’t run. These Sprints has nothing to do with physically running.
After reading the book called Sprint, this inspired me to try Sprint with a few startups.
As a mentor, I already help a number of startups so as an extension to this, Startups Ignite organized Sprints for a few startups with a small team of people with different perspectives to play the different roles the startups did already not have. Startups Ignite supplied the facilitators, myself being one of them.
According to GV, “The sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. Developed at GV, it’s a “greatest hits” of business strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use.”
This 5 day Sprint process should be a great learning experience for everyone. More Sprints may be scheduled again.
I am running a 5-day startup Sprint (over two weekends 6/3 to 6/5 and 6/11 to 6/12) for 4 startups at a co-working space. Not just myself, of course, but with 20 other engaged individuals.
I will add lessons learned once we have completed the four Sprints.
