Product Description

Crowdfunding is an emerging investment vehicle that may be better positioned to support the capital requirements of translational research, proof of concept projects, and early-stage start-ups than more traditional capital sources, like venture capital and angel investment. This funding approach taps into the masses for smaller, more manageable investments versus larger investments from a few. Crowdfunding, if properly executed, could provide new avenues for gap funding of promising university technologies and start-ups; however, many questions (and curiosity) still remain surrounding its adoption and useful implementation.

This 90- minute discussion covers the process of raising gap funds through university funds or external partnership, and managing a plan for sustainability. Each discussion leader has had experience in raising multiple funds from different sources, and will share their insights and experiences (Michigan Tech, SohoLoft, innovocracy.org).
