I've worked for Kickstarter (a crowdfunding platform) for about five years and have helped numerous people successfully tell their stories to raise funds and support around their ideas.
I previously also worked in the commercial kitchen industry and have experience helping aspiring food entrepreneurs get started with their food business. I helped develop and run two cohorts of Launchpad, a 6-week intensive workshop designed to help food entrepreneurs take the first steps with their business. This program covered regulatory requirements, mission and vision setting, marketing and storytelling, finance, and scaling up to a commercial kitchen. Combined, the first two cohorts had approximately 80 graduates (across NYC and Dallas, TX) and I remain extremely proud of the leaps those food makers took!
My side projects, WeSupportNYC and InternedUp are focused on helping people find job/opportunity placement in customer support positions or through paid internships.

What I can offer
I am happy to help any entrepreneurs that are considering crowdfunding as an option for raising funds. In regards to running a crowdfunding campaign, I can offer advice and guidance when it comes to everything from making sure that an idea is feasible for crowdfunding, to ideating the story and rewards around the campaign, to planning a promotion strategy.
