The community capital movement is unfolding.
Across this country in small towns to metropolitan city centers, localizing our money to strengthen communities has become a rallying cry for food cart vendors in Detroit, small manufacturers in Oregon, and pub owners in Indiana, to name a few.
If you are a community advocate, you’re a community capital advocate. Now is the time to learn more, and that’s what this conference is for.
Access to capital is everything.
So how do communities access it? ComCap17 explores tools, knowledge, and strategies from leaders for leaders at every level who are working to improve access to community capital.
Join us as we discover how local investing mechanisms – from crowdfunding to changes in law – increase access to community capital for entrepreneurs and citizen investors.
“Investing into local economies has the potential to strengthen every corner of every state—which leads to a stronger, more resilient nation. That’s worth supporting!
