Community Investing Innovations & Challenges

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In recent years, we've witnessed an unprecedented array of innovations in our financial system that are transforming how people in communities invest in each other. We'll examine the tools, both fringe and mainstream, with the greatest potential for building the New Economy, and share practical examples of how they can work. Then, bring your real-world community funding challenges to share with our session, and we'll collectively brainstorm solutions to help move you forward. We hope you'll be inspired and invigorated by the possibilities!
