International crowfunding projects

Within their course “Networks and E.Platforms for Entrepreneurial Development[1]” (Course leader Anna Glaser) the 15 students of the MSc in International Business & Consulting divided into 5 groups had to learn how to raise funds through crowdfunding, a new and innovative way to fund projects and charities (receiving and leveraging small contributions from many parties).

This approach of learning by doing will be useful for their own entrepreneurial future project as Business Developer. As of now, thank you to support them in their crowdfunding projects.

The students used the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to exhibit their projects.

[1]Networks and E.Platforms for Entrepreneurial Development

The concept of platforms and networks is at the heart of the most vibrant start-ups. The fact that we prefer to trust strangers and “e-friends” than brands or firms creates a wide range of opportunities for entrepreneurs. As a result, this is creating a new set of concepts and novel ways of creating and developing businesses based on information systems, strategy and marketing. This module addresses these key elements in modern day business.
