Tech Startup Hosts Free Run for Office Bootcamp for Potential Candidates in Detroit

Crowdpac’s experts will teach the secrets to crowdfunding a campaign ahead of filing deadline

DETROIT, MI — Today, the nonpartisan political crowdfunding startup Crowdpac announced a free evening bootcamp on March 29th in Detroit designed to teach citizens how to run for office and win in the digital age. The program will feature a panel of experts who will walk citizens through the process of exploring a campaign using the latest technology that is helping thousands of candidates run for office across the country.

Michigan’s April 24th filing deadline is rapidly approaching, but there’s still plenty of time for candidates to explore a run for office. Crowdpac’s platform was recently profiled by NPRFast Company and Roll Call for the way it applies innovative crowdfunding technology to help first-time candidates fund their campaigns.

“The single-biggest challenge any candidate faces when they run for office is raising money,” said Mason Harrison, Crowdpac’s Head of Communications. “In this seminar, we’ll teach citizens the basics of exploring a run for office and raising the money they need to actually win.”

Crowdfund Your Run for Office will be held at WeWork Merchant’s Row, located at 1449 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. Networking, drinks, and refreshments will begin at 5:30 PM followed by an interactive presentation and discussion from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. While the event is free, space is limited and RSVPs are required to attend.
