Crowdfunding Business Workshop

Feb 23, 20178:30 am -11:00 am

The Town of Miami Lakes and its Economic Development Committee will host a Crowdfunding panel workshop on Thursday, February 23rd in Town Hall Council Chambers, 6601 Main Street. Networking and registration will take place from 8:30-9am, and the workshop thereafter. Cosponsored by the Miami-Dade Beacon Council, the Small Business Administration (SBA), and MICROscholarships Inc., the workshop will be moderated by Sheri Colas-Gervais of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council.

In 2015, it was estimated that worldwide over $34 billion was raised through crowdfunding. Crowdfunding (or crowdsourcing) is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people. Crowdfunding makes use of the easy accessibility of vast networks of people through social media and crowdfunding websites to bring investors and entrepreneurs together. Crowdfunding has the potential to increase entrepreneurship by expanding the pool of investors from whom funds can be raised beyond the traditional circle of owners, relatives and venture capitalists.

The workshop will educate participants about the federal and state regulations behind the market’s functionality. In addition to crowdfunding, the panel will discuss other forms of investment such as accredited investors, and the importance of a business plan and its role in obtaining investment.

The workshop panelists include:

Althea Harris, Small Business Administration

Senen Garcia, SG Law Group

Raju Mohandas, Founder of BridgePoint Financial Group

Orlando Espinosa, Co-founder of MICROscholarships Inc. and Emineo Media

Space is limited, and registration is required. Please RSVP to Nicole Singletary at singletaryn@miamilakes-fl.gov
