Raise Capital on Your Own Terms

Two Great New Local Investment Resources

I’m pleased to let you know about two great new resources for local investment, along with a book-launch event for those of you living in the Washington DC region.

In partnership with the Washington State Department of Commerce and the Sun Valley Institute, Maury Forman and I just published “Washington Dollars, Washington Sense: A Handbook for Local Investment.” It contains dozens of tools, case studies, and resources–and it’s free! You can download here. (Let me know, BTW, if you would like to help us prepare a similar handbook for your state.)

Additionally, I’m delighted to announce that my dear friend Jenny Kassan has completed her new book “Raise Capital on Your Own Terms.” The subtitle says it all: “How to fund your business without seeing your soul.” Jenny is a amazing pioneer in local investment tools and this book is a must read. You can learn more about it here.

If you live near Washington, DC, you can meet Jenny and hear her discuss her book on Thursday, November 30, 7 pm, at the IMPACT HUB DC: 419 7th St., NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20004. You can reserve a ticket and get more information here.

A happy local Thanksgiving to all of you!
