Cultivate Community Capital in Your State
Since 2015, ComCap has offered both regional and national gatherings, bringing together community capital cultivators from across the country together to learn, connect, and share their states’ experiences. Although this is certainly a national movement, it is on the community and state levels where real traction can take place.
This is exactly how last year’s ComCap17 in Monterey, CA came to be: through the encouragement of our engaged, local co-hosts, the City of Monterey and Middlebury Institute of International Studies, along with the support of dozens and dozens of local community and fiscal partners, including the Cannery Row Business Improvement District, Cal Coastal, the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Monterey Bay Economic Partnership, among others.
It’s the power of a ComCap – to offer a convening of both local and national community capital leaders and the curious, alike, discussing why, what, and how – communities can invest in themselves.
Led by the National Coalition for Community Capital since 2018, plans for the next ComCap – ComCap19 – are underway for Detroit, MI in June 2019, and the door is open for another state/region to co-host future editions, both big and small (and in between).
Why co-host a ComCap? This national or regional conference is held to educate local and regional leaders on how to leverage their intrastate securities crowdfunding laws, cultivate community capital, and to coordinate actions they can take locally when making policy, legal, and fundraising plans.
