Join us for Omaha Entrepreneur Network's monthly meetup and happy hour. The month's focus will be on crowdfunding, and we're being sponsored by Suiter Swantz IP.


It's a special OEN meeting, and we are apart of Omaha's FIRST Startup Week,  We have an exciting theme, crowdfunding, and two great panelists who've been very successful at it. We're expecting a big event with lots of attendees as well! Come learn what they did to successfully raise money from one of the newest funding channels for your venture! As it is Happy Hour, we will have a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for free, as well as snacks.

With today's changing lending environment, entrepreneurs who bootstrap their venture need to get creative with financing. Crowdfunding is one tool to make that happen. There is an art to raising small sums of money from a large number of people, many of whom who won't know personally. Our two panel speakers bring the following experience to give you tips on how to make that happen.

Hannah Olsen is running a full-fledged company, Hannah Caroline Couture, while being a junior student at UNO! She ran a successful Indiegogo campaign to pay to participate in a marketing trip, and the exposure quadrupled revenues at her fashion company. Dillon Nicholson runs Hatchfund, an online crowdfunding platform for artists. Having been acquired by the Aim organization, Hatchfund also helps educate artists about the steps needed to successfully raise funds through crowdfunding for their projects.

Crowdfunding is a low cost and big reward way to raise funds if done correctly. Come learn how that's done from our expert panelists, and do it for your dream venture!
