Central and Eastern Europe is a considerably huge market in the meaning of population, capital and ideas. There are also significant improvements in the development of crowdfunding in this area. Crowdfunding.pl and Polish Crowdfunding Society are organising a conference at the uncommon date of 12.12.12 in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. Your contribution will be helpful.
However, crowdfunding is skyrocketing in the USA and Australia, there are many initiatives connected with this mechanism in Europe. There are many new platforms raising rapidly, so that even the famous kickstarter decided to enter this market, by settling in Great Britain (as for now). There is a need and space for development for crowdfunding, especially in emerging markets as Poland.
The conference “Crowdfunding in Poland 2012” and follow-up event “Good Ideas Fairs” aim at gathering the stakeholders of development of crowdfunding, which includes project authors, CF platforms providers, financial institutions, marketing agencies and the NGOs. Prelections will cover the state of crowdfunding in Poland, Europe and the world, tredns, risks but also future challenges, as well as practical advices, success stories and investment possibilities explained by ex. famous film director Wiktor Grodecki, who will explain specification of investing in indie films.
