The event, which caters to entrepreneurs, investors and students, captures the state's "everything is bigger in Texas" personality, as it features five dynamic workshops and more than 50 speakers, in the three-day expo.

"What initially started as a fad, crowdfunding has become the status quo in the pursuit of securing equity in the growing startup culture," said Terell Jones, Director, Kickercon. "In order to support the burgeoning entrepreneur community, Kickercon is establishing itself as the go-to national event for those interested in educating themselves on all-thing crowdfunding."

No matter what industry your idea falls into, Kickercon has a speaker for you. The speaker lineup includes Indiegogo experts, Nathan Jones of ABC's "Shark Tank," crowdfunding success stories such as Misfit Wearables, numerous venture capitalist firms and investors, and even Forbes reporter Mark Fidelman, who will be moderating the "Social Media & Marketing Training" session.

Registration is now open to the public with general registration for the three-day expo starting at $399.99, available at Kickercon.com. Through the month of July, attendees can receive up to 20 percent off the price of a ticket with the coupon code Kicker20. Students may also register for a significant discount with evidence of their school ID.

Kickercon will also be held in conjunction with sister events including:
