BRIEF: SBA to host conference on crowdfunding
Feb 16, 2013 (The Wenatchee World - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Raising business money from a wide network of small investors -- called "crowdfunding" -- will the be the topic this week of a webinar series hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The free webinar will be held online at noon Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as part of the agency's recognition of National Entrepreneurship Week, Feb. 17-23.
Crowdfunding uses online tools to solicit small amounts of money from a variety of sources and individuals for community causes, political campaigns, inventions and startup businesses. One popular site is Kickstartstarter.com.
Webinar topics will include the pros and cons of crowdfunding, how it works for business people and how one North Carolina resident used the method to help finance his urban farming operation.
