Wine n’ About | Bangkok Entrepreneurs May Event: “Crowdfunding with KickStarter or IndieGoGo. These Entrepreneurs have done it.”
Bangkok Entrepreneurs May Event: “Crowdfunding with KickStarter or IndieGoGo. These Entrepreneurs have done it.”

“Crowdfunding is the collection of finance to sustain an initiative from a large pool of backers—the “crowd”—usually made online by means of a web platform.” 
Such platforms include KickStarter and IndieGogo.

In our May edition of the Bangkok Entrepreneurs meetups, on Monday 19 May 2014, meet Entrepreneurs who have financed their projects by using the Crowdfunding platforms.
