Why it’s happening
If you understand crowdfunding, you understand why it needs to be exposed on college campuses . If you don’t understand crowdfunding, watch these videos (we do not claim ownership of these videos):
In short, crowdfunding is the ability to raise funds for a project or business idea through your social, personal, and professional networks. College students often have the biggest networks, best business ideas, and most resources available to them, but they don’t know where to start. Handshake360° is helping change that reality by educating students about crowdfunding through the key players who lead this industry. Colleges are helping lead the way by incorporating crowdfunding into business curriculum!
Crowdfunding Campuses is a stepping stone for crowdfunding companies to explain and promote their platforms to thousands of college students and educators on a monthly basis. Students will learn the ABCs of crowdfunding and will be able to network with top industry leaders who are interested in making crowdfunding a staple within higher education.
