Do you have a vision for building a vibrant local economy? Do you want to invest in Main Street instead of Wall Street? Do you have a small business idea and are wondering how to raise capital? 

 
 
In this webinar, we will learn about options available for local investing, community capital raising, and creatively financing small businesses and social enterprises from Jenny Kassan, co-founder of Cutting-Edge Capital, and Dan Rosenberg, founder of Real Pickles.
