Come and gain a deeper understanding of the reasons why local
investing is good not just for your net worth but also for the local
economy. Learn about the existing organizations, rules, and
regulations through which local investing can be achieved. We will
also explore how individuals can begin to move their money from
Wall St. to Main St. and get safe profitable returns. Business owners
will additionally learn creative ways to access capital.
We will have an open and unscripted period where local businesses
seeking investors, and local investors seeking a particular type of
investment, can both make three-minute statements to the larger
group. Small businesses seeking capital should bring brochures,
business plans, and/or prospectuses.
Speakers include Andy Schexnaydre, a value-based financial
planner from Sonoma County involved with the GoLocal Movement
in Sonoma County, and Jenny Kassan, CEO of Cutting Edge Capital,
an Oakland-based consulting firm committed to helping small
businesses get the capital they need to succeed.
