Founder Crowdfund Better
Kathleen Minogue is founder of Crowdfund Better, a consultancy focused on educating and guiding small businesses, entrepreneurs, creative artists, and nonprofits on how to use crowdfunding strategically to help them attain their financial, marketing, and business goals.
She is particularly focused on crowdfunding education initiatives that encourage entrepreneurship, economic development, and job creation in local communities.
After running her own successful crowdfunding campaign in 2012, Kathleen invested time behind the scenes with the creators and executives of major and niche alternative funding platforms to understand crowdfunding from the inside out. She has worked alongside project creators guiding highly successful campaigns on platforms ranging from Kickstarter and Indiegogo to niche platforms like Seed&Spark, Barnraiser, Fund Dreamer, and Hatchfund. A dynamic speaker, Kathleen uses her skills as a former teacher and financial professional to run highly interactive workshops that address the needs of novice crowdfunders as well as experienced veterans. She is a member of the Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA) and has been invited to speak at venues including General Assembly, Impact Hub, Pepperdine University, the Director’s Guild of America, and the Small Business Administration.
Prior to founding Crowdfund Better, Kathleen spent time at JPMorgan where she helped build relationships with leading technology venture capitalists and worked as an in-house consultant for an LA-based crowdfunding start-up.
