NEW YORK, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- eLuminate Network, a global network for entrepreneurs in various stages of their businesses, today announced open registration for the first-ever crowdfunding conference for entrepreneurs and business leaders.
The eLuminate Pitch CrowdFunding™ Conference 2012, will include a full track of speaker events and Pitch Sessions™ designed to elevate and promote crowdfunding and crowdsourcing resources for entrepreneurs.
The two-day conference is set to take place on July 30-31, 2012 at the New York Marriott hotel. eLuminate Pitch™ promises to be the first crowdfunding conference specifically for entrepreneurs. Conference participants can attend speaker events with successful leaders in the crowdfunding community and participate in the Pitch Showcase™, where they can get real opportunities to present their projects and inventions to potential contributors.
eLuminate Pitch will include a robust exhibit space, networking opportunities, entrepreneur education venue, Pitch crowdfunding competition, and awards presentation.
Entrepreneurs seeking funding and funded entrepreneurs will have multiple opportunities to meet with fellow entrepreneurs and potential crowdfunding contributors, while learning how to better access and leverage crowdfunding resources.
The eLuminate Pitch CrowdFunding™ Conference 2012 is poised to be the premier conference to help funded and unfunded entrepreneurs
- Learn to better leverage crowdfunding as a financial resource
- Implement best practice to better structure entrepreneurial projects
- Maximize resources and optimize a project timetable to better utilize funds
- Develop strategies for the next business phase, after receiving funding
- Gain insight into ways to improve crowdfunding videos and other promotional tools
eLuminate founder and president, Sharon Brown, notes that "the conference is timely because of the growth of crowdfunding. It has been a great source of money for entrepreneurs and small business owners, that in many instances have been locked out from access to capital from traditional sources."
Brown makes the point, "with such an influx of hands-on cash available to entrepreneurs (in the billions, according to many sources), entrepreneurs with funded projects need access to manufacturing, distribution, consulting, legal, human resource, financial management, and a host of other products and services. This is why we are excited about the sponsor opportunities and exhibitors who will support the conference," said Brown.
Registration for eLuminate Pitch CrowdFunding™ Conference 2012 is available at eLuminateNetwork.com/crowdFunding-conference. A special discounted early-bird registration rate is available through May 5, 2012, which provides a $200 savings off of the full conference fee.
