What is investment crowdfunding?
Investment crowdfunding offers entrepreneurs the ability to raise funds on their own terms. Individuals like you can finally invest in the companies they believe in the most – those within their own community! That’s why we created our Invested Course, to help entrepreneurs take advantage of this new opportunity.
The history of our Invested Course
In 2018, after receiving questions from many local businesses interested in this new financing tool, we launched our pilot Invested Crowdfunding Course. Since then we have held three Invested Course Cohorts that continue to gain traction on the state and federal level.
Previous graduates from these Invested Course Cohorts have executed successful investment campaigns ranging from $20,000 – $107,000 and include Asheville Tea Company, Wehrloom Honey, and 180 Float Spa! You can view an example campaign from one of our graduates here.
The 6th Cohort of our Invested Course is coming up!
In between sessions, the Invested Course includes several one-on-one technical sessions with facilitators. Following the Course, those that decide to execute investment crowdfunding campaigns will move into their launch with the assistance of our Mountain BizWorks team and specialist partners.
The 4-session course will take place virtually on the following dates:
- Session 1 Thursday, February 25th, 2-4pm
- Session 2 Thursday, March 4th, 2-4pm
- Session 3 Thursday, March 11th, 2-5pm
- NO CLASS on March 18th
- Session 4 Thursday, March 25th, 2-5pm
Here’s how to get started.
Add your name to the Cohort 6 Interest Form, and we will follow up with a brief consultation and informative call on specifications for the course.
The course fee is $300 and $90 for additional participants from the same company.
