Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the internet. The crowdfunding workshops will cover the basic tools necessary to create a successful campaign, such as setting expectations, budgeting, advertising and creating a story video. Carl Knoblock, Virginia District Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration, will facilitate the workshops.
