I am delighted to be a guest speaker at the first-ever Crowdfunding Summit in Prince George this week. This one-day event is filled with information and inspiration for crowdfunding and financing a business or non-profit and will feature the launch of the new Invest Local BC crowdfunding platform. Taking the global crowdfunding concept and bringing it to a local level is one of the many features of this new platform.
This is an exciting time for start-ups, whether for or not for profit. Crowdfunding gives organizations and businesses an avenue to reach like-minded people and collaborate and participate in the success of small (or big) projects. My own Kickstarter campaign was an exciting experience and allowed me to connect with so many wonderful people who backed my project and then became customers.
This project and business development made it possible for me to grown my business and create more products and jobs. It is an exciting time at Kimberley's Kitchen with new products and services being launched this year. As well, our new business Telkwa Takeout is thriving and growing steadily in our first year of business.
If you attend the summit, please introduce yourself. For more information about Kimberley's Kitchen, visit my online shop and be sure to sign up for my newsletter.
