Most people have heard of crowdfunding — usually through platforms like Kickstarter or GoFundMe. But as of 2017, in North Carolina, crowdfunding is also a way that entrepreneurs and businesses can accrue investments.
In 2015, Forbes predicted that investment crowdfunding would surpass venture capital funding the coming years.
A big 'thank you’ to Juan Garzon, Paige Connelly, and the rest of the StartCharlotte team for featuring our INVESTinNC event at Bold Missy Brewery in Charlotte last week on their blog. It was a wonderful turn-out and given that the event preceded International Women’s Day, it offered up the perfect time to present our Woman-Owned Six-Pack investment crowdfunding campaign!

Just in time for International Women’s Day, local female business owners recently gathered to learn about how their companies can benefit from investment crowdfunding.
Held at the only female-operated brewery in Charlotte, Bold Missy Brewery, John Panaccione of INVESTinNC hosted the event. The end goal is to recruit women-owned businesses in Charlotte to take advantage of crowdfunding and the opportunities offered by Invest in NC.
We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of our next investment crowdfunding campaign, the Woman-Owned 6-Pack! This exclusive group is specifically designed for women entrepreneurs in North Carolina that are looking to raise capital for their business.
Back in 2010, as the CEO of a seven year-old software company, I decided to move from Boston to Wilmington, NC. We had Fortune 500 customers, a steady growth rate, and a comfortable backlog of contracted work with recurring revenue.
At INVESTinNC our mission is to educate small business owners and investors in North Carolina about investment crowdfunding opportunities. A question we like to ask business owners in North Carolina is, "Have you experienced challenges when raising capital for your business?" Almost everyone we ask answers, "Yes".
If you are someone that would answer the same way, we would like to provide some helpful information on how accessing capital can be made easier.
