Crowdfunding Small Business Development
December 19, 2017 @ 1:00 PM Eastern

Crowdsourcing.org defines crowdfunding as “the use of small amounts of capital from a large number of individuals to finance a new business venture.” This financing mechanism has become immensely popular with entrepreneurs and small businesses as can be seen by the growth of websites such as GoFundMe and Kickstarter. States across the nation are adopting legislation to support this new style of finance. Some states have even partnered with crowdfunding providers or offered grant programs to encourage its use. During this installment of the CDFA // BNY Mellon Development Finance Webcast Series, our expert speakers will discuss the basics of crowdfunding and provide examples of successful programs from around the nation.
