Crowdfunding Masterclass

Crowdfunding awesome things with The Spark Project

Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Don't know how or where to start with your crowdfunding campaign? If this is you, you've come to the right place.

If you only get one shot at crowdfunding, how will you go about bringing your best idea to life? Would you take the opportunity to learn how to run a successful one?

Let Patch Dulay, Founder and CEO of The Spark Project help you bring your awesome projects to life.

The Spark Project has worked with over 120 projects ranging from startups businesses, social enterprises, and creative projects, and has raised more than 6.5M pesos over the past five years. We know how much you want to spark you project, that’s why we have spent years testing and learning effective campaign strategies so that you won’t have to start from scratch.

The most successful crowdfunding campaigns are those that are well thought out and well executed. We'll be your guide.

Did you know that only less than half of all crowdfunding campaigns worldwide reach their goals? At The Spark Project, 60% of our projects reach and exceed their goals. This is higher than the worldwide benchmark.

What’s makes The Spark Project so different?

We guide our projects even before they launch their projects. Once they do, they have a clear crowdfunding strategy and the right mindset to succeed in their campaign.

Most entrepreneurs jump at the opportunity to crowdfund but end up failing because they do not know how to strategize for their campaigns. This common pitfall is totally avoidable with the right tools, best practices, hard work, and winning mindset.

This program is ideal for startups founders, social entrepreneurs, creatives, and cause-driven organizations.

IS THIS MASTERCLASS FOR ME?

If you have this idea for a project that you’ve been wanting to crowdfund for a long time. You’ve done your own research on crowdfunding but can’t seem to get started because you’re overwhelmed with everything you saw online; I think you’re going to be really interested in taking this masterclass. This masterclass is only for serious project creators.

We’re going to teach and talk to you with the assumption that you REALLY want to make your idea a reality and run a very successful crowdfunding campaign.

If you’re someone who wants to just want’s to try it out and see how things will go — there’s nothing wrong with that — except this masterclass is definitely NOT for you.

THERE’S NO BETTER TIME THAN NOW, TO GO SPARK THAT PROJECT. If you don’t do anything TODAY, be prepared for things will probably remain that way for a long time. I’ve seen it happen. People with an idea park their dreams and I see then after two, three years, they haven’t moved the dream forward one bit. I don’t want that to happen to you.


LET’S RECAP

Imagine yourself exceeding your crowdfunding goal, increasing the size of your community, and getting the right exposure you need to build your brand. You know have more than enough funds to make your project a reality. This is all because you prepared every aspect of your campaign even before you launched it.

It’s decision time. Are you going to be the smart crowdfunder or the unprepared one?
