Byron event teaches how to make the most of crowdfunding

CHECK IT OUT: Inventor Ric Richardson will be one of the speakers at the conference.

CROWDFUNDING - the Reality Check will inspire all ambitious innovators looking to get the most out of their crowd-funding campaigns by teaching them the skills necessary to start their dream projects.

The two-day conference, which is part two of the Innovation Pipeline Series, will provide the tools for local inventors to learn how to use crowd-funding campaigns to test the market and fund their ideas.

The series for up-and-coming inventors was created by one of Australia's most high-profile inventors, Ric Richardson, famous for taking on Microsoft and winning a multi-million dollar settlement for breach of his software patent.

Speakers at the conference will include Richardson and event co-creators Ted Esdaile-Watts and Braden Wilson from Industrial Design.

The founders of Zeoform, a start-up that invented an innovative ecomaterial made from cellulose fibres will share the lessons learned from their crowd-funding campaign while Marcus Schappi from Geek Ammo who attracted backing of $573,760 having asked for $25,000 will also speak.

The first Innovation Pipeline event held in Byron Bay last year was a sellout and numbers are restricted to ensure participants have a chance to mingle with speakers.
