In 2014, final year students were given the opportunity to have a live videoconference with two Kickstarter Community Managers, Nick and Julio, in New York.

Students were taken through the process of creating a Kickstarter campaign and were given unique advice as to what strategy they should use with their prototype, demonstration video and product description.

To complete the experience, the students also attended a workshop with a local video production company to get their 'Kickstarter' videos up to scratch. Read more.
