Public Meeting | Accelerating Access to Capital: Crowdfunding as a Solution to Fund HER Business

This March, in honor of Women’s History Month, the National Women’s Business Council invites you to join its second quarter public meeting in Fiscal Year 2018 on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, from 2:00pm ET to 3:30pm ET.

This public meeting, which will be held via webinar, will offer an update on NWBC’s research and engagement activities that took place during the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2018, feature a keynote from the U.S. Small Business Administration, an overview on the Council’s three recent research report under its access to capital pillar, and a panel discussion with ecosystem builders in the crowdfunding space. During this public meeting, we will discuss how we can accelerate access to capital in the broader landscape and share how crowdfunding can be a solution and a distinctive avenue of access to capital. Access to capital remains one of the greatest barriers for women trying to launch, scale, and grow their businesses. As the government’s only independent voice on economic issues impacting women entrepreneurs, access to financial capital remains at the forefront of the NWBC’s agenda.

Time will be reserved before the meeting closes at 3:30pm ET for participants to address Council Members, directly, with questions, comments, or feedback.

The event will take place via web conference. Details will be provided upon RSVP. You can RSVP Here.

You can also join the conversation online using the hashtag #Capital4HerBiz.
