“What’s Community Capital?” with Brian Beckon

“ComCap” is our shortcut for community capital — money that comes from the community and stays within the community, building local wealth and economic vitality.

New crowdinvesting laws have been passing across the country—now in 36+ states—and they create unprecedented opportunities for localizing capital. Let’s harness them for good.

Most of our money, in nearly every form—from purchases to mortgages to savings accounts to investments—leave town the minute they leave our wallets, heading for Wall Street. This system has slowly drained our local economies of usable capital and continues the economic erosion we see in towns across America.

Advocates of all kinds, from local investing experts to slow money champions to impact investors, are building a re-localizing movement to strengthen local economies, using these new tools. Join the National Coalition for Community Capital and Hatch Innovation as we co-host events, roundtables and other learning opportunities on building community capital across the country – beginning in your own neck of the woods.

Catch up with ComCap The Podcast – it’s free!

Explore all the connection points inherent in community capital, from social enterprise and impact investing to regional economic development. Listen to Amy Pearl as she provides an overview of community capital, hear from Michael Shuman who makes it crystal clear why this matters to local economies and City Councilman Timothy Barrett as he describes the new role of government leaders, or sit down with Marco Vangelisti who breaks down money, myths, and how the financial system works.
