You voted for this

What kind of investor do you aspire to be, and how do you become that investor?

A brief Fireside Chat with two community capital experts as they present Case Studies around community capital which refers to investment capital invested by individuals (nonaccredited and accredited) and institutions (whose capital is coming from individuals) into businesses and nonprofits. Because of Revalue’s demographics most will be rooted in Michigan.

These Case Studies will develop conversations in facilitated breakout sessions  around local, direct community investments. What went well, what were the challenges, how is the ecosystem supporting this engagement, or not. What resources are needed for improved outcomes. How is my investment values present?
