How to Raise Money for your Show: The Seminar!
I owe you an apology.
Because this blog, and its related seminar, is at least a year in the making.
Ever since I started teaching my Get Your Show Off The Ground and Broadway Investing 101 Seminars, I’ve gotten a ton of requests to create a seminar dedicated to the subject of how to raise money for your Broadway show, your Off Broadway show, or your anywhere show.
And I’ve wanted to do something about it for a long time.
After all, my “How to Raise Money” blogs, are some of my most read. And the subject comes up in 98% of my consultation sessions.
And before today, I still haven’t addressed it. So I’m sorry.
But it’s finally time.
On Saturday, November 2nd, I will be holding our first ever How to Raise Money for Your Show seminar. It’ll be a five hour intensive on the subject from 11-5 (with an hour for lunch), and we’ll discuss all areas of raising money, including:
- Where to find investors
- How to approach investors
- How to structure your ask and close the deal
- How to communicate with investors
- How to get rid of the fear in asking for money
- Is crowdfunding for you?
- And a whole lot more
In addition to learning the tips and tricks that have helped me raise millions of buckaroos, we’ll have interactive sessions, where you pitch me a project, and I’ll critique your ask.
I promise that after you complete the seminar, you’ll be rarin’ to get out there and raise money for your show. And the seminar works for all types of shows . . . from Broadway to Off Broadway to Off Off Broadway and Non-Profits too! And frankly, the stuff I teach crosses over to all mediums and all industries. So whether you’re looking to raise money for a show or a film or a hardware store, I’m sure I can help.
The cost of the seminar ain’t cheap. I’ll be telling you the exact strategies that I use, and, well, those are pretty valuable to me, so I’ve got to charge for ’em, as I’m sure you can understand. But because this is the very first seminar of this style, we’re doing it at a reduced rate. It’s normally going to go for $595, but we’re knocking it down to $495 for this first session of 10 people only.
And when you think about it, the cost of the seminar is pennies compared to the amount of money I’m going to help you raise. With just one or two adjustments to how you raise money, I could have you raising 100x that! (As with all of my seminars, if you’re not satisfied, and you don’t think I give you enough skills to raise at least the cost of the seminar, I’ll give you your money back. Simple. No questions asked.)
So click here and register today. Reminder, we’ve only got 10 slots, and because of the number of requests I’ve gotten for this seminar in the past, I’m sure they’ll go fast. So register now.
And we’ll get you raising money and get that show on its feet before you know it.
See you in November.
And thanks for accepting my apology.

UPDATE FROM KEN AS OF JUNE 26, 2014:
Because of the popularity of the seminar (click here to find out when the next one is scheduled), and because so many of you were interested in learning how to raise money for your show, but couldn’t get to New York City, I’ve created a home-study just for you.
It contains all the info in the seminar (minus the live practice sessions), plus bonus materials including actual offering documents and budgets from a Broadway show.
