Candid Conversations: Finding Funding
Jun 26

Candid Conversations: Finding Funding

Registration Fee: Emerging - $35.00

Registration Fee: Established - $45.00

Registration Fee: Intrapreneur - $60.00




In this Candid Conversation, our panel will look at the different sources of funding available to creators - obvious ones and not so obvious ones. We will talk about different funding opportunities, how they work, and the tactics necessary to succeed. Creators can too easily believe that they don’t ‘fit’ in the funder’s eyes and this conversation will help move past this perception through tactical asks over time. We will learn first-hand about fundraising campaigns and business development strategies while exploring questions such as:

  • What funding is out there and how do I get access to it?
  • Which sources of support are best for you?
  • How do I tell my story in a way that feels good while meeting the funder’s priorities?

Following the panel discussion, join us for a session on knowledge mapping, networking and a guided conversation that digs deeper into the theme of finding funding in a small-scale, intimate workshop.
