Crowdfunding For Food Entrepreneurs

March 28, 2015


Crowdfunding is a great way to jumpstart and market your food startup projects–but only if it’s done well. Close to 60% of all crowdfunding campaigns fail. There is a science to running a successful campaign and it all starts with preparation, before you even click the start button.

Lisa Q. Fetterman, Forbes 30 Under 30, has raised over $1.3 million through two Kickstarter campaigns for her sous vide startup, Nomiku, and she wants to help you succeed.

This one-day bootcamp will teach you everything you need to launch a kick-ass crowdfunding campaign, from planning and creating buzz before you launch, to learning how to keep momentum strong in backer growth, to immediate post-Kickstarter logistics. By the end of the day, you will walk away with an action plan and loads of templates to help you get your project funded.


  • Understand what it takes to get your project funded
  • Learn how to cultivate and activate your tribe to create pre-launch buzz
  • Crash course in PR and marketing strategy to get a pre-launch media blitz

  • Understand what it takes to create a killer promo video on any budget

  • Develop a communications strategy for during and after your campaign
  • Understand fulfillment costs, logistics and best practices
  • Determine which crowdfunding platform is right for you
  • Learn how to build the right team from small to large budgets
  • Walk away with a crowdfunding strategy
