I have raised over $200K using KickStarter and I am here to share what has and has not worked for me on all of my campaigns. I encourage your to Google and Search KickStarter for my Campaigns: Amir Watches and Stranger Watches.

Introduction and Course Overview

Crowdfunding can be a great source for raising initial capital, building a base of new customers or simply increasing the brand awareness for your company. I have successfully utilized KickStarter to launch, fund and distribute many Watch Collections and I am confident that there are many entrepreneurs who can benefit from these lessons. There are many courses on Basics of Crowdfunding and How to Become a Millionaire using Crowdfunding but none of them succeed in providing relevant and direct lessons. I have personally planned, created and executed 4 KickStarter Campaigns that you can easily search for and I have designed this course based on these experience only. No fluff, just practical and relevant information for you to use.
