Dude...this sounds like an AMAZING IDEA!!! Something specifically for gigs and similar events instead of competing with miscellaneous projects for support via kickstarter. Rates seem transparent. If you're reading this, head over to http://gigstarter.com/
Video feedback: simple does it. Don't add a lot of visual. Possibly, you may want to highlight each main part of the message somehow, and the transitions between the parts. One way could be to always change perspective when a new part starts. Another thing to add a split-second pause in the flow of words (and maybe music, even). Biggest problem right now is that the music sometimes is to strong and overpowers the voice. The recording quality of the speaker is very "garage". You could perhaps benefit from using a better microphone, that will help filter out resonance/echo and allow you to raise the volume of the speaker's voice without quality issues. Concept: Love the concept. The beauty of it is that the company that sells the most tickets is likely to also be the most able to sell and succeed their own product - the most deserving startup will actually be the headline act.
This is a great idea that can really turn into something huge. More and more are creating wonderful products but simply do not have the means to get their products to potential investors and/or buyers. The Plugin event can change all that and offer a means for dreams to become reality. Kudos!
Great looking event! You should take a quick look at Pause Fest - a different but similarly focused festival here in Melbourne. I appreciate the passion coming through in your story. One suggestion is to think a little more about communicating why you're doing this - it'll improve your messaging from the start. In fact, Simon Sinek's book Start With Why would be a brilliant read for you.
Love the enthusiasm in this video, and the messaging about the event is very clear. For any new event, there is a certain "chicken and the egg" element to building new supply of startups and demand for tickets. What is missing for me in this video is some signal of quality of the startups or even a keynote speaker. With such a spark, you could start to build buzz that might attract both startups and passionate members of the startup community to attend your event. Is there any prominent VC or Founder that would be willing to speak at your event? Incorporating a name and a face into this or future videos will help take your marketing to the next level.
I love this and can't wait to come! I'll refer you to some folks. I'm going to share it as well. How do we start selling tickets? Only feedback I have is to put more information in the description so we can share it and find out more info via links. I'm going to share this.
