Join TiE New York for a virtual event on crowdfunding and hear from experts on the newest way founders are raising capital.
Why? Crowdfunding is taking advantage of the easy accessibility of vast networks of people through social media and crowdfunding sites to bring investors and entrepreneurs together, and expanding the pool of investors beyond the traditional circle of owners, relatives, and venture capitalists.
