Local Crowdfunding Funds Businesses and Improves Communities
30 April 2015 ,Thursday
But going door-to-door, making phone calls, and/or sending out post cards is tedious and time-consuming at best and too costly, at worst. It may just be easier to drive around town with a megaphone, shouting your ideas at random pedestrians. Easier, but just as impractical.
Some projects are too local and too specific for the global internet community. The things you care about on the Gulf Coast in Mississippi won’t matter to someone in New York City. A business need in Israel may not mean anything in the United States. What you need is a way to connect with the people who will care most about your idea, and who have the most to gain from it’s success.
Enter local crowdfunding.
Local projects. Local businesses. Local charities. Local people. Local money.
Whether you’re looking for investors for your next business plan or you’re a small, local charity who needs a new van to care to take elderly patients to medical appointments, you need to connect with locals. You need investors who understand the need you’re filling, the community you’re serving, and have a clear investment in the improvement of your local area.
What kinds of projects benefit from local crowdfunding?
When local projects are supported, the community benefits. For every startup company that succeeds in your city, new jobs are created, and the economy improves. Taking care of the most vulnerable citizens improves the quality of life in your hometown while giving people the hand-up they need to be productive members of society.
Take a look at just a few ideas:
- Main Street beautification
- Veteran support services
- Technology in schools
- Local startup companies
There’s no limit to what you may be able to envision in your local area.
