Covering production costs in advance, financing infrastructure, launching the pre-sales of a collection or sounding out customer requirements for an entirely new idea – crowd funding is a multi-tasker! In its talk the platform wemakeit.at explains how crowd funding functions and can be tackled with success. Christoph Markovsky from the fashion label Mavienna reports how he managed in spring 2015 to raise 13,000 euros for sample collection, lookbook and infrastructure through wemakeit.at. Questions are desired explicitly as part of the event. Those who have an idea themselves for a crowd funding campaign are invited to bring it with them and introduce it!
