How we can assist EVE 2.0 Clients and Tech Park Tenants
My team, GCBC, and I are working on a Crowdfunding Accelerator Program to assist businesses, student teams, and faculty researchers with product design/prototype and who have an interest in commercializing their ideas. We want to utilize our Venture Capitalist network and resources to help aspiring entrepreneurs at RPI by assisting them with engaging Chinese Manufacturers.
Specifically, we consult with entrepreneurs on how to set up and execute capital-raising campaigns on Crowdfunding Platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, etc. We work with entrepreneurs and inventors by helping them to:
- Create a great presentation video
- Develop website and social media strategy
- Finance & Pre-order Accounting
- Provide consultations with successful campaign veterans
Once a product has been Market Validated on the Crowdfunding Platform we introduce the entrepreneur to our network of Venture Capitalists who would review the product for viability as an investment opportunity leading to possible mass production in China.
The Crowdfunding Accelerator Program is a great way for entrepreneur to take their first steps toward commercialization by validating their idea, receiving funding, receiving Press, connecting with VCs, connecting with Chinese manufacturers, and getting their venture launched.
