Silicon Valley Meets Crowdfunding April 4th and 5th; Be There

Crowdfunding is a vital part of the future for social entrepreneurship, ranging from start-up social ventures to long-established nonprofits seeking to innovate. 

The internet, especially using platforms like Fundly, Razoo, Causes and StartSomeGood, allows social entrepreneurs to access capital they never could before. 

Implementation of the JOBS Act later this year will accelerate what is already an incredibly rapidly growing arena, with the legalization of investment crowdfunding. This will bring an order of magnitude greater scale to crowdfunding immediately and could lead to a two order of magnitude scale difference, taking crowdfunding from a robust $3 billion per year in 2012 to an incredible $300 billion over the next decade.

Entrepreneur Sydney Armani in Palo Alto has organized a conference there on April 4th and 5th to introduce Silicon Valley to crowdfunding. There will be a great slate of speakers and I am honored to be among them.

If you are interested in crowdfunding for your social enterprise, I encourage you to attend this event.
