It’s no doubt that crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter have helped plenty of entrepreneurs realise their ideas and bring great new products into the world.
Singapore-based We The People (WTP), the world’s first and only crowdfunding retail chain, further supports these creators by giving people a chance to experience their products in real life.
To date, they have brought more than 200 brands and 1,000 products to the public through online and brick-and-mortar stores in Singapore, Malaysia and the United States.
On top of that, WTP also organises an event series called For Creators, By Creators (FCBC), where successful creators, investors and business leaders share their knowledge with the next generation of startups.
On the heels of their successful runs in Boston, St. Louis, Las Vegas and New York, FCBC will be holding its inaugural Asia event in Singapore on 8 February 2020.
For Creators, By Creators: From Crowdfunding to Global Launching is set to be their largest event till date, featuring a full day of speaker sessions, panel discussions and networking opportunities.
Its speakers and panelists comprise “some of the most successful crowdfunded companies” and other industry experts, including:
- Julia Xu, Head Of Staff of Alibaba North America, and Founder of Tink Knit
- Ramiro Gomez, Co-Founder, ALPAKA (raised more than $1.4 million on Kickstarter and Indiegogo)
- Aditya Batura, Co-Founder, Potato Pirates (raised $258,000 with over 5,000 backers on Kickstarter)
- Maria Ishii, Cross Border Business Development, CAMPFIRE (Japan’s largest crowdfunding platform)
- Nison Chan, Co-Founder, Head of Purchasing, We The People
According to WTP, attendees can learn how to take the first step in launching their own ideas, and how to use crowdfunding to bring their ideas to scale fast.
WTP is also engaging creators in Singapore who want to take their brand global in two to three months. So if you’re an entrepreneur hoping to expand your footprint overseas soon, this is a great opportunity.
While there’s usually a general admission charge of $79, FCBC is now offering tickets at 50% off with the promo code “P50”.
