OSM Partners with Indiegogo

January 31, 2014

On Screen Manitoba has launched a partnership page with Indiegogo, the world’s largest global crowd funding platform. The new page will act as a spotlight for our members’ campaigns and help endorse the projects with cross-promotions.

By creating a partnership with Indiegogo, On Screen Manitoba members will have access to interactive suite of educational tools and support resources. Members can upload their campaigns on the partner page and cross promote with On Screen Manitoba through social media and In Focus newsletter. Members will also receive a 25% discount in Indiegogo fees that is automatically applied when the campaign is linked.

Here is a link to the Campaigner Field Guide to help you get started and click here for an introduction to crowd funding video learn a bit more about crowd sourcing with Indiegogo.

If you have already done an Indiegogo campaign and would like your project uploaded on our partner page please email katy@onscreenmanitoba.com or refer to our section on Linking Campaigns.

Here are some campaigns On Screen Manitoba has already uploaded onto the Partner Page.
