Do you also find it extremely difficult to create an event that attendants rave about – where you are actually profitable?

For the first time ever, as Startup Funding Event, we’re launching the ultimate online event school for impactful creators.

We’ll be teaching you how we came up with the idea, launched, and scaled our organization to 3 countries in less than 12 months, and from 100+ people to 1000+ people with NO budget.


This is perfect for you, if you’re a business owner, freelancer or student that wants to launch a product, kickstarter, get more business exposure, credibility or even start an event career.


If you ever wondered how to start, scale or organize an event for charity, business, festivals or more…, but the only thing stopping you is the experience or lack of resources, then this course will be worth it to you.

We’ll be walking you step by step through the following:


Learn how to find a profitable impactful idea for your event. BONUS: Apply it to launch your business products, mobile apps, kickstarters, other.


Learn how to find and build with the best tools there are to set the foundation of your event strongly.

We invest highly in the community culture, with live events, meetups, feedback Fridays, and collaborations. It is our everyday mission to create a creative, safe, and fun environment to thrive in.


The Elite Event Creator Program is a private online event training community founded in 2018 by Startup Funding Event.

It’s the ultimate online event school for impact creators, designed to teach you how to build and scale any event that has the potential to bring good into the world and impact human lives, even if you have no idea on what sort of event you wish to build, technical skills or knowledge about events.

Each year we have thousands of new people from all around the world enter our events and I want to make sure that you can make an informed and educated decision on whether the Elite Event Creator Program is right for you.
