Local crowdfunding platform Equity Endeavor has teamed with Stay Local to host two crowdfunding 101 seminars this week. The first session will take place tomorrow January 15th at 8:30 am and the second will be held on Thursday, January 16th, at 6 pm. Both events are free but an RSVP is recommended.
The sessions are designed to help small business owners understand what crowdfunding is and how it can serve as a funding option for their businesses.
“These are general educational sessions, so anyone can come, whether its a brick and mortar business owner or tech entrepreneur,” explained Equity Endeavor co-founder Broderick McClinton.
Equity Endeavor notes that crowdfunding has been a hot topic in the media over the past year, though few business owners understand how it can work for them. Topics to be covered include:
What is crowdfunding?
What are the different types of crowdfunding?
