  • "As a business owner learning the ins and outs of setting up a crowdfunding campaign, I found this program (The Rewards Crowdfunding 4-Course Bundle) to be fun, engaging, and easy to follow.  As an educator putting together my own online program, I was in awe at the stylish, colorful, and clear way that the program was laid out. Simultaneously simple and chock full of information, I was inspired and excited to get started instead of overwhelmed.  It's also great that we can request ongoing consultations if needed as we go to answer Qs and fine-tune our strategy. I would recommend this course bundle to anyone looking to crowdfund and market their small business!"

  • "Purchasing the Crowdfund Better Rewards Crowdfunding Success 4-Course Bundle was absolutely priceless for us. Without the education, resources, and ongoing guidance of Kathleen & Scott, the crowdfunding experience would have been simultaneously overwhelming and underwhelming. We learned that building a campaign is so much more than just the community capital, it's a unique opportunity to really imagine perspectives other than our own - to get creative and consider the lives of the community we serve. The courses were so very thorough and gave us practical tools and worksheets to use in building our campaign.On their website, they say they put the "fun in crowdfunding" and that is no lie. We highly, highly recommend taking their courses if you're ready to go the crowdfunding route!"

  • “Crowdfund Better’s webinar effectively provided an introduction to understanding how crowdfunding can be useful for everyday entrepreneurs. Kathleen Minogue was able to walk us through core concepts and what some of the key elements of a successful crowdfunding campaign looks like. Participants were able to ask their questions, get answers and generate ideas for viable solutions. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Crowdfund Better, who provide creative access to capital strategies to our national entrepreneurial community.”

  • "I am happy that I purchased The Crowdfunding Opportunity online course by Crowdfund Better because it is extremely affordable, explains key components of what Crowdfunding is and whether it is the right solution for your funding needs. I also appreciated the downloadable worksheets including the one that helps you figure out your networking situation to see who may be able to contribute to your campaign and not. For anyone who is new to crowdfunding, this is a great introductory course. I look forward to doing more online courses with Crowdfund Better."

  • "Thanks for the Report Card you created for I just finished reading it in its entirety today. I am extremely IMPRESSED!!! I have never seen anything like this before. It was informative and inspiring and I am fully aware of the road ahead to accomplish my desired overall goal of $100K - in stages, of course.

    Having the numbers from the Crowdfunding Report you prepared is invaluable.

    I can actually use the research you provided to develop my Financial Business Model for so that my pricing and offer fits within the exact range of successful publishing industry campaigns you highlighted in the report. This takes the "guesswork" out of Business Plan Financial Forecasting and makes it realistic."

  • "Initially, when I learned about crowdfunding a couple of years ago, I was intimidated by the steep learning curve and amount of work. After completing The Crowdfunding Opportunity course, I felt ready to dive into the crowdfunding mindset and realized that there is no bad outcome from the experience. My favorite part of the course was learning about the non-financial benefits of doing a crowdfunding campaign. The educational information is presented in short segments, which makes it easy to stay focused and engaged with the material. The additional resources make the entire process manageable, easier, less intimidating and reassuring."

  • "I appreciate new connections so much and you all got me even more active on LinkedIn. I know that investors I'm speaking with are SO impressed by the crowdfunding campaign and you all being my coaches. I think it's helped them see that others see something in me and my ability to help more people with my business."
