About this workshop

You have a killer creative idea – maybe even more than a cocktail napkin business plan. But you don’t have the money to start your project. Worse – you don’t know where to look, how to ask, where to best spend your fundraising time and energy for the greatest potential results. Every day you hear about someone hitting a crowdfunding jackpot, but most people you actually know tried and failed. And you vaguely recall there might be some laws that apply to your need for start-up financing, even if you’re not ready to ring the bell on Wall Street. Attorney/Screenwriter/Producer Steve Edmiston will share over two decades of lessons learned on finding money for your low budget creative projects and start-ups.

Takeaways

· Finding (and keeping) your friends, family, and angels

· Lessons from the venture capital world

· Leveraging fiscal sponsorships

· The grant-getting game

· Working with government and NGO subsidies
