Startups learnt story-telling for successful crowdfunding campaigns

SMEDA has organised a 4-day training for 12 selected startups interested in crowdfunding techniques. With an expert from UK based Tom Fleming creative consultancy they were introduced to the journey that businesses need to go on to successfully achieve funding, with a particular focus on gearing up for crowdfunding, learning how to promote, raise interest and eventually obtain investments and funding for their innovative products and services, ideas and solutions. Some of the topics of the training were Building business maps based on the assets and communities the startups require to succeed; Creating a story for the business; Value Creation and Relationship Modelling, etc. The last session  was delivered  by Narek Vardanyan from Crowd Funding Formula with presentation of practical sides of crowdfunding campaigns and how they work as well as success stories like  Volterman’s crowdfunding campaign. Moreover, SMEDA has produced an explanatory video with practical tips and techniques for the interested startups that plan to start such a journey. Here is the link to it: http://bit.ly/2z3jglX
