RCC to offer workshop on crowd funding

Staff report

HAMLET — Crowd funding, a popular financing method that generates money from a large number of individual contributions, is one of many new and interesting ways of getting funding for small businesses.

The fundraising tool is also going to be the topic of a free seminar being offered Oct. 28, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Cole Auditorium, located on the main campus of Richmond Community College.

“Crowd funding opens up a whole new world of opportunity for the small entrepreneur to get global attention. Our goal is to give participants a clear understanding of crowd funding and other methods for funding a small business today that have a lower barrier to entry than other traditional financing methods,” said small business marketing expert Martin Brossman, who will present the seminar on behalf of RCC’s Small Business Center.

Brossman developed the presentation along with small business funding expert Dan Scala. Workshop participants will learn the how-to of raising money for a business and what sources of funding are available to explore.

Pre-registration for the seminar may be completed online at tiny.cc/sbcseminars; or via email or phone by contacting Small Business Center Director Deborah Hardison at [email protected] or (910) 410-1687. Pre-registration preferred but walk-ins are welcome.

More about Brossman’s classes can be found on the website: www.NCSmallBusinessTraining.com, which also provides free resources for small businesses. His latest books are Social Media for Business: The Small Business Guide to Online Marketing, and How to Use Hashtags, which are available at Amazon.com.
