SFFAMA is also proud to announce that we are working on forming a partnership with local “crowd-funding” website, IndieGoGo. This partnership will provide an unprecedented opportunity for SFFAMA members to raise money to fund their creative and business goals. If are looking to raise money, you are no longer alone. SFFAMA can help you though our established network, our experience and now our exclusive partnership with IndieGoGo. Amazing things can happen when we work together, and your dreams may be closer than you think.
Brad Carrick, CEO of SOLZshoes.com and successful IndieGoGo campaigner, will be running this new venture for SFFAMA and available to answer questions and help you get started. If you want to be among the inaugural projects supported by the SFFAMA - IndieGoGo partnership, please come to Portfolio Night on Thursday, Oct. 6 to discuss your idea and find out how we can help.
