Thursday 12th of Sept: The aftermath of two kickstarter projects, and a series of performances

On Thursday 12th of September, we will receive the founders of two recent successful Kickstarter projects (TouchKeys and The OWL), and discuss the next phases in their project. They will share their experience at starting the project, what it’s been like during the fund raising campaign, and finally, what’s next, now that they have the money. It is an opportunity for these two projects to find support and resources among the audience, and for the audience to get insight into community entrepreneurship.

As usual, our events are free to attend and open to everyone.

As the Music Hackspace returns to its welcoming Troyganic Café in East London after a month at the Barbican, it will also be an opportunity for multiple performances following the Kickstarter seminar.

WHERE: Troyganic, 132 Kingsland Road, London (near Hoxton station)
WHEN: Thursday 12th of September, 19:30 (seminar), 21:30 (performances)
