Instead of struggling to find an investor – help them find you! Crowdfunding is a method of bringing small investors and small businesses together to raise capital. By giving you a single platform to build, showcase, and share your pitch resources, this approach enables friends, family, customers, and investors to participate in your growing company by aggregating small investments, typically in increments of $100 - $1,000. In this session, we will examine some of the most popular crowdfunding platforms available.
