Summer Research Cohort Means Extra Benefits and Savings
The Time is Now to Launch a Crowdfunding Campaign

Laramie, Wyoming, June 18, 2019. Businesses and organizations dedicated to helping people, enhancing society or improving the environment are invited to raise money as part of a special crowdfunding cohort this summer on The Local Crowd.

The Local Crowd recently won an NSF SBIR research award to identify ways to support the growth and sustainability of businesses that contribute positively to society. As part of the study, TLC is forming a summer cohort of businesses that want to raise money through crowdfunding. Cohort members will receive free services such as training, coaching, and networking. In addition, cohort members will have an opportunity to earn back the standard 5% platform fee by meeting specific goals.

Cohort applications will be accepted through July 27. For more information, visit, contact, or bring your questions to one of TLC’s weekly “Learn More” sessions, held every Friday at 1 p.m. Mountain Time. Sessions are recorded, and all registrants will receive access to the recording.

Research (SBIR) program. The NSF is an independent federal agency with a budget of about $7.8 billion that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering.

If you are a business or organization founded on the principle of doing something good for people or the planet—and you’d like to raise some money to help you do it better—now is the time for a crowdfunding campaign on TLC.

Why now? Because TLC wants to help people like you, and our current NSF project includes a study of how to do just that. By becoming part of the study, you’ll receive lots of benefits like coaching and networking with like-minded folks. Plus (and this is a BIG plus!), you can make the standard 5% platform fee disappear by meeting your goals. Interested?

We are recruiting our summer cohort now. Hop on to one of our weekly “Learn More” sessions, held every Friday. We can’t wait to meet you and help you create a successful and productive fundraising campaign!
