In 2015, crowdfunding generated US$34Billion, and was predicted to surpass Venture Capital by 2016. And with the rise of equity funding on sites like Indiegogo, 2017 is set to be a watershed. By 2025, the World Bank Report estimates that global investment through crowdfunding will reach $93 billion.

This is a global growth trend that you can't afford to ignore. Come and hear the latest from Indiegogo's Kate Drane, with Q&A hosted by Simeon Burnett, of New Zealand's own Snowball Effect.

Indiegogo's Kate Drane will be sharing about the future of the crowd-funding as a path to market, successful case studies and a few secrets for running a million dollar campaign. As well as letting us in on some significant trends in the crowdfunding world.
