PRLog - Apr. 14, 2014 - FundCaster, a crowdfunding prediction engine, is launching a live online class on crowdfunding campaign engineering on April 23rd, 2014. The unique approach of the course combines the scientific method, principles of customer discovery, and lean methodology to help entrepreneurs determine and improve their chances of running a successful campaign prior to launch.
In the last few years, crowdfunding has evolved into a viable alternative to private and public funding. Last year alone, entrepreneurs used crowdfunding platforms to raise more than $5 billion world-wide. However, in spite of its growing popularity and success, 7 out of every 10 campaigns fail. This course is a result of two years of research and field work aimed at identifying the key elements of success in crowdfunding and is a part of FundCaster’s mission to increase the success rate in the industry.
“In this 4-week course,” said Albin Bajramovic, Founder and CEO of FundCaster, “we are going to share with our students, entrepreneurs and campaigners, a practical application of the scientific method to crowdfunding. They will learn how to create a simple prediction model for their own campaign, test it, and optimize it prior to launching.” By the end of this course, students will know how to create and launch a successful crowdfunding campaign without regard to what platform they want to use.
Sample topics include how to engineer your campaign from scratch, how to create your campaign assets (campaign page, campaign video, etc.), how to build your reward structure, and how to develop media and social connections necessary to run a successful campaign.
“We are planning to make our course very interactive, where students can ask any questions related to their own campaigns,”said Elena Bakhtina, Co-Founder of FundCaster. “To help the crowdfunders further, we will offer one-on-one office hours. Additionally, all students will get exclusive access to our machine-learning tool that estimates the success rate of the campaigns by performing semantic analysis of all campaign-related texts.”
This is a one-time opportunity to learn from crowdfunding experts and practitioners in an interactive environment. Spots are limited.
