Upcoming Topic:

„Crowdfunding – Tipps And Tricks“
February 21, 17:00 o’clock (5 pm)

Well-presented projects can still generate money and attention and help their developers become more independent. Those who want to use crowdfunding as a finance or marketing option, need to know the traps and risks and devote a great deal of attention to the subject. Adrian Goersch of Black Forest Games (»Giana Sisters«) and Jan Theysen of KING Art (»The Dwarves«) talk about their long-term experience with various Kickstarter projects and provide tips on what needs to happen before, during and after a campaign to make it profitable for the developer and a good experience for the players. This includes determining the right funding goals, attractive rewards, marketing and the building of a community prior to the campaign, a realistic assessment of the workload and of the profits to be expected. The two experts provide an overview of the status quo of crowdfunding, take a look in the future and are happy to answer your questions.
