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?

  • Why crowdfunding can be another source of small business financing

  • Current crowdfunding options for New Orleans small businesses owners

More information is available on Facebook for session one and session two.
