Crowdfunding has taken off dramatically over the past few years and many people have used it to raise anywhere from thousands to millions of dollars for their business or business idea. Often, these businesses were not considered “traditionally” fundable at the time they created their campaigns.

 

After seeing this you may be wondering if crowdfunding is right for your business or business idea. We’ve created this event to help you answer this question along with answering the most important, and often undiscussed, questions about crowdfunding.

 

Join New York City based Athena Business Institute founder Serena Walker for this one time event in Seattle, Washington!

Tin Umbrella Coffee recently transformed an abandoned building in South Seattle’s historic Hillman City into a coffee shop (where there was none). They serve up artisan espressos & coffees, freshly-roasted at the shop, alongside thoughtfully-sourced pastries from local bakers & chefs, plus one-of-a-kind events connecting with neighbors, local-business owners & the larger coffee-loving community to create amazing, meaningful new exchanges. As an added bonus, this year, they’re creating a neighborhood bike courier service to deliver amazing coffee, to your door. (In a re-usable tin, that saves a bag, and the environment!)
