Training Material for Crowdfunding Consultants and Coaches


Within the framework of the Crowd-Fund-Port project, ikosom – one of our Project Partners – created a comprehensive training material for small and medium sized enterprises to improve their access to capital through online platforms.

In seven modules it explains “Crowdfunding” and how to prepare a successful Crowdfunding-campaign. It is meant to be used by our Project Partners, who are hosting local/regional trainings for SMEs to learn about Crowdfunding, successful campaigns, best practices in building a community and choosing the right Crowdfunding platform.

You find an abridged version of the modules below. Especially if you are working as a Crowdfunding Consultant in Central Europe, you can use this material in your own trainings. To get full access to the seven modules, please register and tell us, who you are and how you plan to use this content.

We will license the material to you for free and after registration, you get access to the full material: a PDF-document with extra comments on how to use the training material in your workshops and coachings and the seven modules as PowerPoint-Document, which you can download and edit before using it.

Commercial use of this content – including but not limited to workshops, online and offline education, books, guidebooks – is also subject to licensing. The authors keep the rights to revoke a license at a later time.
