The Crowdfunding Workshop given by Georgina Kwakye, the founder of Pimp My Village , inspired ten CD4D participants to give their work visibility.
Altogether, the room was filled with people possessing a vast array of impressive skills from different backgrounds. Each participant was asked to introduce themselves and explain how they communicate in their everyday lives, personally and professionally.
They were provided with an understanding of why visibility is useful and given the tools to do so. The first part of the workshop was about communication and how to use new communication technologies such as Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn. To which Georgina also provided them with insightful answers to their concerns about using such technology.
The second part of the workshop focused on the question: ‘How to commercialize your ideas?’ and how to use crowdfunding to do so, either in the Netherlands or abroad.
What’s more, all the participants were asked to stay connected on LinkedIn, to share their experiences so others may learn from them.
One participant exclaimed: “There are so many challenges but we will conquer them!”
More workshops will take place in the future, so don’t forget to look out for them.
