Investment Crowdfunding Seminar Description

For a preview of the seminar, please see this video of the Investment Crowdfunding Introduction presentation done at a 1 Million Cups meetup.

You can also watch the full seminar here which was recorded at American Underground in Durham.

Seminars are held at various locations around the state in conjunction with our crowdfunding partners. Will McGuire or Mark Easley serve as the speakers and discuss how to use the North Carolina Localstake NC Investment Crowdfunding platform to get funding for your startup or existing business.

Localstake NC enables startups and existing businesses to conduct a cost effective and professional debt or equity securities offering and get funding from new sources: their community, customers, partners, and supporters.

This seminar will help both entrepreneurs and investors understand these new funding options and how to make use of them.

Investment crowdfunding has been growing significantly around the nation, with billions of dollars raised across many different platforms. Now it’s our turn North Carolina! It’s time to start investment crowdfunding our most promising North Carolina startups and existing businesses to help grow the economy, create jobs, and enable new products and services in communities all over our state.

Localstake NC is the first investment crowdfunding platform exclusively serving North Carolina. Startups and existing businesses ranging from technology startups to retail shops and restaurants can use the platform to raise money using a variety of both private and public equity and debt offerings including priced equity rounds, convertible notes, SAFEs, revenue share loans, and promissory note loans. Localstake NC supports various securities law exemptions, including 506(b) and 506(c), Regulation Crowdfunding, and the new NC PACES Act investment crowdfunding law, which provides a great new innovative option for raising money from all North Carolina residents.

CrowdfundNC is leading the effort to bring investment crowdfunding to North Carolina. Will McGuire and/or Mark Easley will discuss the current state of the industry, how investment crowdfunding works, and answer your questions about how it might apply to your situation as an entrepreneur or investor.
