In honor of Global Entrepreneurial Week 2020, Idaho will host the first annual Crowdfund Idaho LIVE event -- and the Idaho Women’s Business Center's (IWBC) Community Over Covid theme is gaining momentum across Idaho.

Watch businesses inventing and re-inventing themselves with the help of crowdfunding -- and you can help!

Invitations are already going out to every corner of the state, every industry, every demographic with special attention to the under-represented. We are using one of the experts at crowdfunding, Kathleen Minogue, founder and CEO of Crowdfund Better, to provide free coaching on crowdfunding and other customer-funding models. 

From there, 10 businesses will tell their entrepreneurial story and include the hardships due to covid-19 They will compete LIVE and launch their crowdfunding campaign in partnership with Crowdfund Idaho and the Idaho Women’s Business Center. The audience will have the opportunity to donate in live time and support the competitors.

This LIVE entertainment entrepreneurial showdown will take place on November 16th at 7pm MST. You are cordially invited to sit in and join the fun.

Boise organizer Diane Bevan, Minogue, and myself - Norris Krueger, GEW state coordinator for Idaho - would also be pleased to help you design similar events in 2020 and beyond. 

Stay tuned for more news on events that bridge Idaho to other states and other countries during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Let’s DO this!
