The lecture will be held on Monday, November 19 at 19.00 in the Lecture Hall of the Polytechnic Museum.

Charles Adler is a businessman with 14 years of experience in the field of interactive design and information architecture and co-founder of the main American platform Kickstarter, which he calls not a company, but a social movement - a community of people who support projects and ideas that could not take place without the participation of others. The result of this movement is more than noticeable - for example, Kickstarter is responsible for 12% of films shown this year at the Sundance festival.
    At a lecture, Gary Hostive will explain the basic principles of crowdfunding, talk about various platforms, and share knowledge and skills on how to successfully communicate with your audience and step-by-step build campaigns.
