Marcia Kaplan will present Crowdfunding starting at 6:30 p.m. this Thursday, Oct. 25 to the Los Alamos Entrepreneurs’ Network at The Hive, 134 N.M., 4 in White Rock. The public is welcome.
Crowdfunding is an innovative new method of raising funds for one time creative projects, non-profits, social causes, and businesses.
Currently most campaigns are donation-based. If you or your organization wants to raise money for your project, cause, or business, you should attend this presentation to learn more about the crowdfunding opportunity.
Also, in April, as part of the JOBS Act passed by Congress, equity crowdfunding for entrepreneurs and small businesses became legal in the United States.
In 2013, entrepreneurs, inventors, and small businesses will be able to raise funds via crowdfunding. Come learn about the different crowdfunding models and the benefits and limitations of crowdfunding.
