Crowdfunding to Raise Capital for Your Business

The last few years have seen a proliferation of new mechanisms for raising money for your business, from Slow Money, to local institutions like California FarmLink, to crowdfunding platforms that allow many people to lend you small sums of money. We’ll explore some of these platforms, including buy-ahead programs, loan programs such as Kiva Zip, and donation programs like Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and Barnraiser, where you return some kind of “perk.” We’ll dive deeper into using Barnraiser, with stories and advice from its founder, and Kiva Zip, by exploring how Capay Valley Farm Shop used it to raise funds earlier this year. We will also examine fund development through local exchanges.
