ECN Launches CrowdTuesday, the New Crowdfunding Industry Meetup
Created by ECN, CrowdTuesday is a small to medium sized event, characterized by an informal and friendly atmosphere, taking place in the after-work. Its main goal is to provide a pleasant occasion for the local crowdfunding industry to get together and network.
“CrowdTuesday was inspired by MobileMonday and CleanTuesday, which proved to be powerful means to connect and grow an industry”, says Oliver Gajda, Chairman of ECN. “We strongly believe that CrowdTuesday will have a similar effect not only at local level, but on the entire European crowdfunding industry as well. In fact, ECN aims at connecting the different CrowdTuesday events around Europe in order to encourage an exchange of knowledge and best practices”, he adds.
CrowdTuesday launched last April with the first event organized in Paris. The organizer, Alex Raguet, Lumo founder and ECN treasurer, commented “CrowdTuesday Paris has been a great success, proving that there is need for a meetup dedicated to the actors that operate in the crowdfunding space. We planned another CrowdTuesday Paris on the 20th of May and there are other four scheduled in France during the month of June”. However, CrowdTuesday is not limited to France: ECN is, in fact, currently discussing the possibility to export the event also in Germany, Italy and the UK before the summer break.
ECN is looking forward to see more CrowdTuesday events happening all around Europe. “It would be great if one day, while on a work trip, one could stop by to the local CrowdTuesday to do some networking with the local actors and enjoy an after work drink” concludes Mr. Gajda.
