From Buy Local To Invest Local

In this episode of ComCap The Podcast, we revisit the 2016 ComCap Conference session “How to Make the Shift From Buy Local to Invest Local”.  Led by economist Michael Shuman, this panel of entrepreneurs discuss the strategies they employ to help change the community mindset around investing.  The goal of helping communities differentiate the impact of local investment can lead to greater capitalization of entrepreneurs, as well as more stable local economies.

 

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Different approaches to investor education and community outreach.
  • Research and experiences from panel entrepreneurs on community investment.
  • How payments and access to capital play a role in community behavior.
  • How local investment enables money to stay in your local economy longer.
  • Strategies on cultivating local investment in your community.

People are undercapitalized who have capacities, that is permanently lost productivity. We need to capitalize those people to capture that productivity, which is increasing the standard of wealth.
