Mumbai-based a crowdfunding website, Wishberry is all set to go offline with six campaigns handpicked for on-the-spot crowdfunding on February 27th at The Goa Project (TGP). TGP brings together people to share and learn in each other’s company.

These six projects, chosen out of 65 projects in December last year, will be showcased to a live audience at TGP and the audience will fund their favorite ones at the event in real time.

Wishberry Co-Founder Anshulika Dubey said, “The Goa Project is a great place to get the relevant audience for innovative projects across arts and technology. TGP community has earlier supported successful projects like Menstrupedia, Lawtoons and Riding On a Sunbeam. So this time we thought of doing something different. We thought of getting people together at TGP to witness some live crowdfunding action.” The third edition of TGP takes place from February 26th to 28th at Bay 15, Dona Paula, Panjim, Goa.
