Did you Know North Carolina Businesses can Raise up to $2M Under the State's New Crowdfunding Law?

The recently enacted NC PACES Act has created an exciting opportunity for North Carolina small business owners to raise up to $2 million in capital and a unique investment option for North Carolina residents.

If you are an entrepreneur, investor, or professional services provider related to economic development, join us on Thursday, October 18, 12:00N for an online webinar to learn more about the State’s new equity crowdfunding regulations and how to make them work for you. Register here!

Some background.

Access to capital has emerged as one of the most consistent challenges facing small business owners and entrepreneurs in North Carolina. The fact is the majority of small businesses trying to compete in today’s economy fall into an abyss of a funding gap – somewhere between multimillion dollar venture capital and angel options that cost a fortune and smaller amounts needs that are unserviceable through grants or fall on deaf ears at the vast majority of banks.

We now have another option – equity crowdfunding.

While this is a little known and marginally understood way for small business owners to raise funds, it has been around for just over two years now. Local companies, those in specific industries, women owned, veteran owned, minority owned… all have a chance to benefit from the massive new pool of funding represented by hundreds of thousands of everyday investors located across North Carolina.

Learn more, and hear how INVESTinNC can help educate business owners and residents support economic growth in North Carolina by joining our webinar.  We hope you can participate!
