The number one reason that haunts don't make it past the concept stage is funding.
However, as haunts get more expensive to open and remain high-risk traditiional sources to raise capital are being closed off. Banks, investors and self-funding are getting harder and harder to do.
In response to that, some haunts are turning into a more tech-savvy means of getting off of the ground: Crowdfunding.
So, in this episode, we take a look at crowdfunding, what it means, whether its right for haunts and offer some advice on making it work.
This week's episode includes:
- Conference Reminders
- What is Crowdfunding?
- Why Choose Crowdfunding?
- The Risks of Crowdfunding
- Where to Crodwfund? (Kickstarter and IndieGoGo)
- Suggestions and Tips for Crowdfunding

All in all, if you're looking to launch a haunt or to expand a current one, this is an episode you do not want to miss!
