KSF 6th October 2018
Finance Club – Blue Chip
The theme for the KSF activity of Finance Club, Blue Chip was Crowd Funding. Crowd Funding is an innovative source of raising funds in small amounts from the public via the internet for a specific purpose like a business venture, charity/donations , religious or political activities.
To enable the students to have a practical exposure to investing and getting returns, the club members ran a crowd funding campaign. (watch video below) to mobilize a fund of Rs.2,000.

The contributors were promised a return on the units purchased. The fund was invested in food stalls and game stalls set up on the campus by the club members for 2 hours. The revenue generated was Rs.4,800 approx. and after deducting fund expenses the amount was distributed among the unit holders. Each unit holder got a return of 100%. (i.e Rs.20). The stall members were asked to prepare the accounts for their stall and ascertain the profit /loss and present the balance sheet.
Students participated enthusiastically and were very excited about doubling their investment in just a week. Ms.Sirisha Goud, Ms.Anisha Thomas and Ms. Jhanavi did a presentation on the concept of Crowd Funding followed by a short quiz on the same. Overall it was a great learning experience.
