Crowd Funding Planning

One Spark has kickoffed their online crowdfunding campaign with RocketHub, it said today, looking to raise $50,000 towards the April 2014 festival’s second year operating costs.
The campaign will run Sept. 1 through Oct. 15, 2014, a news release said.
“Goods,” or rewards for donating to One Spark’s campaign, range from a shout-out on Twitter to having One Spark’s digital media manager get a tattoo of the donor’s choice on his left shin.
Last year, One Spark raised $106,689 using the online crowdfunding tool, Kickstarter.
One reason it switched from Kickstarter is because RocketHub’s CEO and co-founder, Brian Meece, is a former University of North Florida student.
“Brian has been very supportive of One Spark. At our first event, he gave a lecture on crowdfunding and has been a thought leader on the topic globally,” One Spark executive director Joe Sampson said. “Also, RocketHub is an up-and-coming and strong platform. Right now it’s the world’s third largest crowdfunding platform.”
