Current WERX resident, Robert M. Atkins, was invited to fellow co-working center Genius Den this past week to give his presentation on Crowdfunding. Robert shared some of his past failures and successes with approximately 40 attendees, many of which were in the process of starting their own campaigns. Robert spent time before-hand directly mentoring some of these folks, and shared his 'secret sauce' for running a successful campaign. Big thank you to Joe Peyton, founder of Genius Den, for the hospitality !
Robert was co-founder of 'Green Eye Games' who by using Kickstarter was able to raise 1.4 million dollars to help fund his board game 'Cthulhu Wars', plus an additional 500K in direct sales after the campaign ended.
Thanks Robert for sharing the lessons you have learned and helping other potential start-ups!
