Paper people cut outs in front of money

Location: Online

You have a great idea, you have an eager team, and you have artistic drive. Are financial barriers the only issues keeping you from realizing your dream? Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and Patreon are popular tools for raising the resources you need to get your ideas off the ground. This class will provide an overview of the legal implications and challenges that an artist or organization might face when turning to crowdfunding. Areas covered will include how to protect your idea, how to protect the funds that you raise, and the pros and cons of different crowdfunding sites.
