Crowdfunding, CSAs, & Pre-Sales: Part 1 of 2
This month, we'll learn about the different forms that crowdfunding can take, and how platforms are evolving to support local businesses across the country. Come enjoy short lesson from the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, followed by a lively discussion. Whether you are a consumer, investor, entrepreneur, policy-maker, or academic, you will help craft the conversation as we explore how crowdfunding can contribute to the vibrancy of our region.
One week later, on February 11th, we'll dive deeper with a happy hour panel discussion of how consumers in our region are providing start-up or expansion funds for local businesses in return for perks, and tips for starting or participating in a crowdfunding campaign: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/440835
For the best value, buy a series pass to all Community Capital: Seattle events, which run through the end of April, 2014: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/480225
The series will also explore local investment clubs; creative community loan models; crowdfunding, CSAs, and pre-sales; community banks, credit unions, and CDFIs; and direct public stock offerings as ways to move money into our local economy.
