Economic Development Business Networks


In this episode of ComCap The Podcast, we revisit the 2016 ComCap conference session “Working With Economic Development Business Networks”.  Led by Noah Brockman, the Capital Access Team Lead for Oregon’s SBDC Network, this panel dives into the tools of the economic developer, and how intrastate securities crowdfunding can help to bring capital to diverse communities.  

 

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • An overview of official Economic Development Business networks and what they can do for you.
  • How ‘Community Capital’ is different from traditional financial access tools.
  • What is working for some Economic Development districts to encourage crowdfunding.
  • How networks using coordinated messaging, education, and budgeting can achieve impact.
  • How terms like “local” take on new meaning with intrastate securities.
  • Some guidelines for internetwork partnerships.
  • What types of business would benefit from an intrastate securities offering.

“I think the biggest challenge is engaging investors and having interesting offerings for them to invest in. So having a match happen at the right time…it’s going to take that continued education and investor engagement to make other deals be possible
