For decades, only Wall Street and the uber-wealthy were able to invest in companies for an equity stake; so Main Street figured out a way around this. Crowdfunding connects startups and nonprofits that need funds for their ideas with individuals who have money and believe in them. But crowdsourcing means much more than raising funds from the public. If done right, it can be very rewarding but how to go get in on the action can appear convoluted and risky. During this full-day event, we’ll flip confusion into clarity and discuss the strides made, barriers that remain and the different types of crowdfunding; equity, debt, donation and reward.
