The first statewide conference on community capital – matching local money with local organizations – will be held on February 1, 2016. More information and registration is at: http://www.comcap.us/colorado
The conference will feature different sources for local capital and show how to form a ‘capital community’ – a group with a shared common interest – a geographic area, an industry or a social cause – that works together to support capital campaigns of organizations that manifest that interest. Support of a capital community is provided through commitments of time, contacts and/or money.
The conference will be of particular value to individuals and entities whose cause or mission includes raising capital for multiple organizations over time: chambers of commerce, economic development centers, incubators, accelerators, business associations, foundations.
The conference will also be of value to anyone seeking capital (businesses, social enterprises, charities or community projects) or anyone who is a source of capital (individuals, businesses, financing companies, financial institutions, government programs, foundations), anyone who provides services in raising capital (broker/dealers, crowdfunding platforms, attorneys, accountants, marketing, IT and communications) or anyone that supports organizations in raising capital (Capital Communities, business, industry and professional associations, civic organizations, chambers of commerce, civic groups, community foundations and economic development centers).
