The ChamberWise Education Consortium, Accredited Investor Markets and Financial Poise, are pleased to announce the release of their jointly-produced webinar, “Crowdfunding Debt“.
Now available on demand, “Crowdfunding Debt” educates business owners and executives about how they can use crowdfunding platforms to borrow money.
“Equity crowdfunding deals have multiple layers and will be game changers to standard bank financing,” says attorney Chris Balestrino. “In part, there is the ability to layer on subordinate financing to bankable transactions for small businesses. For example, whenever you own a golf course, a marina or the liquor store on the corner, the ability to borrow money from the bank at up to15% of your overall capital stack, you can add that to raising money through equity crowdfunding deal and it will be a great boost.”
“It’s tough to borrow from banks these days with so many hoops to jump through,” says Alternative Investment Store CEO Jason Lampa. “I think we’ll see many groups of investors doing things like purchasing smaller companies and using those LBOs as a micro investment banks to finance larger transactions, combining that with equity crowdfunding for more investment dollars. It can be a great compliment to traditional financing to maximize leverage and returns, and will free up cash for business growth, which will benefit everyone.”
Available on demand today, “Crowdfunding Debt” also addresses topics like issuing requirements, obligations for Title III Equity Crowdfunding, who can invest in which type of crowdfunding, how to find a portal/broker dealer, and the pros and cons of investing in an equity crowdfunding offering.
Michael Cavanaugh, a financial advisor with RCM Financial Services is the moderator for this event.
His panelists include Elizabeth Smith-Kulik, CEO of ProHatch, LLC; Jason Lampa, CEO of The Alternative Investment Store; and Chris Balestrino, a principal attorney at Park Place Equity, LLC.
