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 TheLocalCrowd.com, contact Jason@thelocalcrowd.com, 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.
