How to Raise Community Capital with Regulation Crowdfunding

October 15, 2019 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm PDT

What is Community Capital?

Small businesses make your community home. They provide the character of Main Street, the tax base for needed infrastructure and vita; job opportunities. Many, however, are staving for capital and often find it difficult to obtain bank loans. It’s up to us, the community to invest.  
What is Regulation Crowdfunding?

In 2012, President Barack Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Businesses Startups (JOBS) Act into law, creating federal crowdfunding regulations. Businesses at any stage can now raise up to $1,070,000 from accredited and unaccredited investors, as long as the raise is posted through a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved funding platform. Each entrepreneur has one year to complete the goal of the raise. Otherwise, funds are returned to investors.

Regulation Crowdfunding is a game changer for small business. Instead of having businesses rely on banks or accredited investors to meet their capital needs, entrepreneurs can now raise from customers, the community and fans around the globe.

Hillary believes small businesses create sustainable communities that drive economic growth. This conviction drives everything she does. For the last decade, she’s been scaling small businesses throughout the Reno/Tahoe and San Francisco Bay areas. In 2011, she founded être to guide small businesses through the issues that often cause them to stumble: lack of a strategic plan, difficulty obtaining funding, poor management, and failure to implement a marketing and scaling plan.

In 2018, she began working at the grassroots level, connecting small businesses with their communities to raise up to $1,070,000 through Regulation Crowdfunding.

Beyond her work with clients, Hillary is a financial advisor at the Silicon Valley Small Business Development Center and a business advisor at the Sierra Small Business Development Center.

Hillary is always chasing the next adventure, whether it be slaying powder at Alpine Meadows or following more experienced surfers to spots unknown.
