Join iFundWomen’s Why Smart Women are Crowdfunding Boot Camp to find out why crowdfunding should be the first stop on every entrepreneur’s funding journey. Learn how founders are using rewards-based crowdfunding to prove demand for their products or services before investing in supply, all while avoiding going into debt funding the earliest days of their startups, small businesses, side hustles and passion projects.

Led by iFundWomen Founder & CEO, Karen Cahn, this boot camp will teach you what crowdfunding actually is and how to utilize the iFundWomen Method in order to run a successful campaign. RSVP to get your funding questions answered and walk away with tangible next steps to take your business to the next level.

Looking for one-on-one support? Sign up for office hours following the boot camp to get strategic guidance on crowdfunding for your business from iFundWomen's Founder & CEO.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!
