EQUITY-CROWDFUNDING-DAVID-WILLIS.jpg

David Willis is the first producer in the United States to raise over $1 million and make a feature film by using Equity Crowdfunding. No one who has successfully raised money using Equity Crowdfunding has ever given a step-by-step masterclass like this, showing exactly how they did it. He'll teach you how you can also go from zero to over $1M in investments in six months, like he did.

This Equity Crowdfunding Masterclass is the first of its kind, dedicated to showing you how to launch your creative project by using Equity Crowdfunding. Whether you're raising $10,000 or $1 million, this masterclass will teach you everything you need to know to be successful.

 
 

Equity Crowdfunding is a new, disruptive method of fundraising in the United States, from a law that went into effect in 2016, opening a whole new avenue for filmmakers to make their ideas reality. And it's working. Movies are getting made this way.

Equity Crowdfunding (officially called Regulation CrowdFunding, or Reg CF) can be used to finance almost any new or existing business. Unlike Kickstarter or Indiegogo, Reg CF campaigns do not focus on donations from friends and family, but instead on the hundreds of thousands of interested investors already on approved platforms. Because of this, the average Reg CF campaign is almost twice as likely to be successful, and raises more than eleven times the average Kickstarter campaign -- if you do it right.
