PRESENTED BY THE COLORADO CAPITAL CONGRESS PBC
IN COLLABORATION WITH COLORADO LENDING SOURCE
IF YOU NEED TO RAISE MONEY IN 2016,
THEN YOU SHOULD CONSIDER INVESTMENT CROWDFUNDING!
This extremely practical workshop will answer key management questions on how to conduct an investment crowdfunding campaign for businesses, social enterprises and community projects:
- How much money can I raise?
- Who are my investor candidates?
- What do I need to offer in ROI + benefits?
- How long will it take?
- What will it cost?
- What action must I take?
Karl Dakin, a long time entrepreneur and small business advocate, will explain how to engage your customers in a relationship that can be upgraded to an investor and then to a member of your sales team. You will learn how to realize a trifecta of benefits from each of your customers: buying products and services, providing needed money as an investment and recruiting their personal network to support your business.
Crowdfunding is a new way to raise money from everyone. It fills the tremendous gap in the capital industry between banks and angel investors. Raising money can be aligned with your marketing program to build your brand and increase sales. Building a crowd of customers provides you with the resources to succeed in your business.
The Colorado Capital Congress PBC is a for profit, social enterprise dedicated to improving Colorado’s capital ecosystem by increasing access to capital to everyone in Colorado.
ATTENDEES WILL ALSO RECEIVE A FREE COPY OF THE FORTHCOMING BOOK – CUSTOMER CROWDFUNDING.
Members of Colorado Capital Congress, customers of Colorado Lending Source, as well as members of Colorado Cleantech Community and TIE Rockies members qualify for a discounted price of $125.
Free passes to this workshop are offered to investors in the current crowdfunding campaign of the Colorado Capital Congress. For information on this opportunity, contact Karl Dakin at Karl@ColoradoCapitalCongress.com
