MASTERCLASS MIXER: Passion Projects + How to Get Them Funded

  • Holyrad Studio 20 Grand Street Brooklyn, NY, 11249 United States (map)

Raising money is daunting. Funding your project feels like something you can’t ask for. Cool thing is that it doesn’t have to be. Traditional forms of funding are making way for crowdfunding, membership sales, grants, microlending, and more.

Join our personal Kickstarter guru, Virginia Zimora, for a roundtable about how she raised a successful campaign to publish her book “Hey Zoey, Get Off Your Phone!”. The book is now on its second publishing and can be found at

Virginia will help guide you on how to properly ask your community for resources and why Kickstarter could be an option for you. At first, her book was met with a lot of rejection by primary publishers and gatekeepers. Despite this, Virginia felt very strongly it needed to be put into the world, which led to this alternative way of funding. The book is now on its second publishing and can be found at
