Individuals, businesses and organizations based in Keene, Chesterfield, Hinsdale, Swanzey and Winchester, NH are invited to submit project proposals to a new, locally focused crowdfunding platform, called The Local Crowd (TLC) Monadnock. This request for proposals is available online at monadnocklocal.org/rfp. All proposals are due before 5:00 p.m. on January 6, 2017.
Crowdfunding is the process in which an entrepreneur, business or organization asks a large number of people (usually through the Internet) to contribute a certain amount of money for a specific project.
By leveraging the power of crowdfunding, TLC Monadnock's fundraising platform will help start-up ventures, early-growth stage companies and community-based projects find access to capital while creating a new way for community members to support the projects they care about.
TLC Monadnock is a collaboration of regional economic development organizations working together to cultivate a stronger ecosystem of investors, service providers and local economy champions in the Monadnock Region. For more information, visit monadnocklocal.org/tlc or contact Monadnock Buy Local at 603-499-7950.
TLC Monadnock is one of thirteen nationwide pilot sites demonstrating the effectiveness of this crowdfunding platform as an economic development tool in rural areas. This research project is managed by The Local Crowd, a Wyoming-based company, and funded by a United States Department of Agriculture Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant.
