Financing for Healthy Communities and Social Enterprises
Wed, Sep 30, 2015
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
6:30 PM — networking
7:00 PM — presentation
Are you an entrepreneur, social venture, or nonprofit looking to raise money legally, cost-effectively and in alignment with your goals and values?
Join attorney John Katovich from Cutting Edge Capital to discuss how alternative funding approaches, such as the use of Direct Public Offerings, can help bring health, stability and resiliency to communities, by allowing for investments and ownership opportunities for the entire population.
Cutting Edge Capital is at the forefront of designing and reestablishing meaningful capital markets that allow companies to maintain their mission and control, while providing vehicles for individuals to invest better, and invest for good.
Direct Public Offerings allow companies to self-underwrite and self-administer public securities offerings to both accredited and non-accredited investors in one or more states.
A company can market and advertise its offering publicly by any means it chooses – through advertising in newspapers and magazines; at public events and private meetings; and on the internet and through social media channels. For many private companies, DPOs provide enough funding to grow, employ and stay competitive, but without the external pressures and loss of control that Venture Capital and Angel funding brings.
$10 / $5 for Re>Think Local and BEAHIVE members
refreshments provided (light fare from Homespun Foods and beer/wine)
