Crowdfunding: a new financing paradigm? - Dec 1, 2016
This special session of VUB TechTransfer's (Advanced) Starter Seminars will focus on crowdfunding as an emerging alternative way of financing startups. Obtaining financing is one of the biggest hurdles startups have to overcome. Apart from venture capital or angel investors, online crowdfunding — raising smaller amounts of money from a large number of smaller investors — has become increasingly popular. This seminar gives a state-of-the-art of the crowdfunding possibilities in Belgium and gives the floor to three successful entrepreneurs who will share their do's and don'ts with future entrepreneurs. At the end of the session we give you the opportunity to get to know your fellow participants better and discuss some entrepreneurial issues during a networking drink.
