Yes, we are Crowdsourcing and Crowdfunding for Expo 2023 | The Minnesota World’s Fair!
Our unique campaign will be launched on Indiegogo in August 2014. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to support our Expo 2023 Bid Development process.
With an impressive cause focus and 9 million unique global web visitors monthly, Indiegogo is a natural platform to connect with the greater World Fair Community. We will take full advantage of this global community to help define the future vision of Expo 2023 through crowdsourced ideas. Additionally, we will enlist their corporate matching program to allow partners to augment our development efforts. More details to come on this exciting campaign.
Want to Get Involved?
A key component of our Expo 2023 Community is our Volunteer Program. You can attend our Volunteer Engagement Event on July 8th at Town & Country Club to learn more about opportunities yet this summer and into fall.
We will be at the Minnesota State Fair in the Lower Grandstand with Minnesota’s Innovation Landscape featuring immersive experiences from Minnesota’s most innovative organizations. From virtual reality glimpses of the US Pavilion at Expo Milano next year to one visionary concept that Expo 2023 could become. Our state fair booth will provide an energizing and insightful experience for fairgoers who have already backed or will back our crowdfunding effort on Indiegogo.
