Crowdfunding can work for the quirkiest small projects, for inventions, for movies and musos, for high tech innovation and low brow pursuits, for worthy community causes, for the environment, for personal projects or bigger ones like the Yungaburra Avenue of Honour.
The person behind bringing Bryan Vadas and Andy Tompkins to the Tablelands is well known local personality and Olympian equestrian, Christine Doan, who has been a long time advocate of alternative sources of funding and “looking outside of the square” for solutions in this present economic climate.
Bryan and Andy are going to tell all in their no stone left unturned, reveal all, straight from the horses mouth piece by piece set of instructions with every tip and trick they have learnt from their first hand experience as co-founders of iPledg. So dont miss this double bill of two of the leaders in crowdfunding on the whole continent, coming to the Tablelands real soon!
Our Tipping Point is $200, any additional funds over the $200 will go towards the next CAFE (Community for Alternative Funding for Everybody) project and reimbursing some of the volunteers for their out of pocket expenses.
