Crowdfunding: How to Raise Seed Capital
Are you startup looking to raise capital? Or perhaps an everyday investor wanting to invest in startups?

Raising early-stage capital is really HARD. Whether you're a brewery, a tech startup, or a blockchain company, there are a lot of landmines to navigate and it's hard to find nvestors. So, why would you stick with private fundraising anymore when you can host an OPO, or On-line Public Offering, where everybody can invest in.

Not only can you reach angel investors, but you can have your friends & family invest, and can even advertise to the general public... all legally. And as an aspiring startup investor you can find vetted startups to invest in right alongside angel investors and VCs!

Join Marvin Abrinica, CEO of Wunderfund, as he shares his personal experience raising capital privately and publicly for his own startups. You'll also hear a panel from several companies who've successfully raised capital using On-line Public Offerings on Wunderfund:

Bonus if you already know what the heck Equity Crowdfunding is! Sign up below now before the room fills up.
