Local Funding, Everyday Investors, Shared Success


INVESTinNC is an educational program created to inform North Carolina business owners and potential investors about new opportunities to participate in investment crowdfunding under the NC PACES Act.

By opening up an entirely new pool of funding from non-accredited, everyday investors, as well as accredited resources, these new regulations provide an unprecedented chance for entrepreneurs to seek alternative financing on their own terms, while giving local investors the ability to support the companies they love.

Our mission is to keep investment dollars in North Carolina while supporting the businesses that help drive our local economy. And we’re not alone. We invite you to join the crowd.

LogicBay’s FundingStack™ is the only intrastate funding portal to receive a notice of effectiveness of registration from the NC Secretary of State under the NC PACES Act. Approved for use in February 2018, this crowdfunding portal is compliant with all NC PACES Act requirements and automates both the issuer and investor experience under the new regulations.

Built on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, the FundingStack™ integrates best-of-breed applications into one technology stack optimized for investment crowdfunding.

Nexsen Pruet represents businesses in virtually every industry with over 190 attorneys located in eight offices across the Carolinas. Since being founded in 1945, the firm’s suite of services has grown to encompass all facets of managing business law from inception and growth to successful transfer, sale, or closure.

Through the in-depth participation of Nexsen Pruet attorney John Skvarla, III with the North Carolina Secretary of State in the formation of the NC PACES Act, the firm has a vested interest in making both small business owners and investors statewide aware of the new opportunities afforded under the new law.

The Regan Law Firm is a veteran-owned business dedicated to exceptional customer service. The firm focuses on four broad practice areas - litigation, business law, real estate, and construction law. Under those banners, they provide clients a wide range of legal services. 

As the integrated escrow agent in LogicBay’s FundingStack™ crowdfunding portal, The Regan Law Firm serves an integral part in securing investor funds for distribution upon issuers’ goals being met or the dissolution of an offering.

What's Being Said

"NC PACES has been recognized as one of the best state crowdfunding laws in the nation because it carefully balances expanding opportunities for entrepreneurs with protecting investors."

Elaine Marshall

NC Secretary of State

"With trends in investment capital being clustered in certain geographies and industries, it’s encouraging to see such an effort to keep small business investment dollars in North Carolina."

John Skvarla

Senior Government Relations Advisor, Nexsen Pruet

“Bottom line it’s difficult for small businesses to get financing through traditional channels and investment crowdfunding opens them up to ‘main street’ investors that represent millions of dollars across the State.”

John Panaccione

CEO, LogicBay Corporation
