By Bethany Zuniga, Editor, Fund All Be All, June 4, 2012
Debe Fennell is one busy woman. She, along with Aggie Kobrin and Deb Augur, just launched their own crowdfunding platform, CrowdFunding LIVE, which focuses mainly on projects created by and for women.
She and Aggie Kobrin, will also be hosting the CrowdFunding LIVE Event in L.A. this Saturday, June 9.The goal of the CrowdFunding LIVE Event is to educate people about what crowdfunding is, how it can be used to raise money and how to launch a successful campaign. It will give people the opportunity to get on-site analysis of their projects or ideas from experts in the industry. “We wanted to bring the best information that we could to the public.” They have an amazing panel of experts and fellow entrepreneurs who will share their advice and experience.
