This month, our speaker Sandy Diao will discuss "Common Mistakes & Myths of Crowdfunding". Is the secret to raising $1 million simply a good product, or is there more? Is crowdfunding just good for drones and hi-tech products, or other things as well? What happens to companies who fail to ship their products? This event will cover common mistakes, big challenges, and help you plan out how much time and money you really need to budget for a crowdfunding launch.

Sandy is the Director of Strategic Programs at Indiegogo, where she has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs launch their products and raise millions of dollars through crowdfunding. She works with technology and design entrepreneurs to overcome business challenges such as marketing, manufacturing, and product development in order to hit their funding goals and deliver their products. Prior to joining, she led the global expansion for a China-based consumer electronics company, where she helped to build the customer support, digital marketing, sales, and operations teams. She started her career at Pinterest, where she spearheaded the company's advertising and monetization business. Sandy has a degree from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business.
