Have you ever wanted to learn about crowdfunding, but could never find a succinct introduction? UNLV is providing that introduction with their course, Comprehensive Crowdfund Training: Creating a Successful Investment-Based Crowdfunding Campaign. Ruth Hedges, founder of Crowdfundingroadmap.com, will teach this informative seminar on the effectiveness of crowdfunding. Hedges has had a hand in many initiatives, including CFPA, CAPS, and CFIRA, and will bring her experience to bear in leading this course. Her ingenuity in many crowdfunding campaigns makes her a fantastic candidate to educate students and entrepreneurs about the topic. “I am thrilled and honored to teach the first certified course on this subject at UNLV, the first university in the United States to do this, and I hope others will do the same”, states Hedges as she prepares for the long awaited start date.
The Comprehensive Crowdfund Training course will take place July 12th and 13th at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ Center for Entrepreneurship. As quoted by the UNLV website, “this first-of-its-kind University course on equity based crowdfunding will provide you with practical knowledge and effective strategies for creating, planning, and managing a successful crowdfunding campaign.” The two-day crash course will give entrepreneurs insight to the transformative method of crowdfunding by choosing the most relevant platform, learning about the JOBS Act, as well as many other relevant topics. Knowledge of these topics will prove to be important for the growth of crowdfunding and for today’s young entrepreneurs.
The course will also include contributions from various thought-leaders, to show the broad diversity of opportunities and perspectives on crowdfunding in the marketplace today. Hedges believes that “the success of securities based crowdfunding will depend on millions of well prepared and educated entrepreneurs and small business owners and a well-educated cottage industry to support them.” It’s a fact that crowdfunding is growing; and educating new entrepreneurs about the industry will continue to drive this growth.
