Crowdfunding and Ibsen?

What does the Norwegian author Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) have to do with Crowdfunding?

This week when Max Valentin, founder and CEO of the Swedish crowd funding platform Crowdculture, gave a lecture at the International Culture Project Management education Kulturverkstan, this is what it looked like.

Perhaps it was due to the fact that Ibsen earned his main income from performing rights, which gave – according to Wikipedia – around 3.357 euro in yearly income in 1899.

In 1898 he had a top yearly income of 9.983 euro, of these 8.469 euro was money from the rights of his collected works.

On the other hand, this doesn’t say much about funding by crowd funding…

Kulturverkstan invites professionals within art and culture, business and corporate field, voluntary and societal organizations; project managers, artists, professors, directors, officials, and many others during the education to always have the voice of practice within the education. During the two years the education lasts, a wide range of people have been invited who also serve as a good network for the students after examination.
