Crowdfunding is the buzziest buzz word in fundraising today. But what does it really mean and how can you take advantage of it to fuel your projects? This presentation by co-founder of crowdfunding site StartSomeGood.com Tom Dawkins will introduce participants to both the theory and practice of crowdfunding, dispelling misconceptions and giving attendees the knowledge they need to utilise this new fundraising form to make things happen. There will be plenty of time for Q & A afterwards.
