People have pledged more that 1.7-billion dollars to Kickstarter projects since it’s 2009 inception. The fundraising community has re-invented restaurant and food development financing by harnessing the social power of the Internet. In-studio guests Terry Romero from Kickstarter, and project creator Rebecca Dengrove of Brewla Bars, talk about how to run a successful campaign and what life after the donation deadline. This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

“It just seemed like the right platform – lots of exciting things were happening at Kickstarter.”

“I think it requires homework and perseverance, it requires work…a Kickstarter campaign is emotional. And, think about what is your message.”
