Event Description

Crowdfunding through platforms like kickstarter.com can be a powerful tool for generating buzz, validating a market for your product, and raising seed capital, but with thousands of new projects posted every week it often takes more that a great idea and a homemade video to get funded.  What makes a crowdfunding campaign successful, what things should you avoid, and how do you engage the media to cover your campaign.

A serial entrepreneur, Mike Prasad has continuously innovated in the application of social platforms, digital media, technology, branding and marketing to drive core business growth in multiple markets. He has worked with major brands and Fortune 500 companies, including Microsoft, Amadeus, Wynn Hotels, Burger King, Nickelodeon, and EA. Early on, Mike became one of the youngest CTO's of a publicly traded company and was called a "twentysomething social networking and branding wunderkind" by Los Angeles Times.
