Bringing Your Product to Life on Kickstarter
ROOM 8

Kickstarter offers designers, makers, and engineers a unique opportunity to connect with an audience and raise funds to bring their projects to life. We’ll hear from Zach Dunham, Design and Technology Outreach Lead, about best practices for crafting a great campaign and building community on Kickstarter. 

We'll begin by looking at several recent Kickstarter digital fabrication campaigns, from waterjet cutters to digital knitting machines, and look at how the founders built a following around their idea, and shared their stories. Then we'll explore the core steps involved in planning, building, and managing your own Kickstarter campaign. 
After attending this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Develop a plan for a Kickstarter campaign
  • Create an outline for a campaign story
  • Identify assets to bring a product to life
  • Build a plan for community and press outreach

Funding and Sustainability
ROOM 8

Funding and sustainability is hard and difficult. We have built and operated 2 labs, proposal to build number 3 and supported in the build and operation of 9 more, closed one, migrating to a new model by reacting to market changes - this is about sharing the learning and how diversity means strategy and planning are very difficult at best but how these challenges can be faced and accepted.
