Innovate518: crowdfunding, startup insurance

Innovate518 crowdfunding workshop posterThe Innovate 518 project at UAlbany has a couple of workshops coming up that could be useful for small businesses and people trying to get an enterprise started...

July 18: Crowdfunding 101 Workshop

Discover how crowdfunding works and how it can work for you!
+ Perfect for beginners to crowdfunding
+ Specific focus is given to understanding the ingredients of a campaign, choosing your goal, creating rewards, and crafting your pitch
+ Numerous examples will be given to illuminate the essence and power of the crowdfunding model"

Tuesday, July 18 from 2-4 pm at UAlbany's Massry Center for Business on the uptown campus. Free, registration required.

(We'd just add that we see a lot of projects try to crowd fund, with wide variation in levels of success. So if this workshop can offer specific, tested approaches, it could be a big help if you're looking to go that route.)

August 3: Startup Insurance 101 Workshop

Learn About Startup Insurance Basics:
- For most businesses, including startups, business insurance should be considered essential to their survival.
- Some types of insurance are required by law, while other coverages may be required by your business associates or investors.
- Business insurance is really about protecting your employees as well as your investment in your business.

Presented by Marshall Sterling Insurance.

Thursday, August 3 from 2-4 pm in University Hall Room 110 on the uptown campus. Free, registration required.
