Entrepreneurs of all races rely on 3 types of capital: 1) personal/family savings, 2) banks/investors, and 3) credit cards. According to the Kauffman Foundation, blacks rely the most on personal credit cards and black  entrepreneurs, in particular, are almost three times as likely as whites to have profitability hurt by lack of access to capital and more than twice as likely as whites to have profits negatively impacted by the cost of capital.

Topics In This Virtual Conference Include:

  • Opportunity Zones
  • Crowdfunding & The JOBS Act
  • Tokenization of Assets
  • New Technology

In 2012, the JOBS Act passed and the way businesses could raise funds changed forever. In 2018, the United States government increased access to capital via Opportunity Zones. But what's really happening on the ground and how do we take advantage of these news laws?

The 21st Century Fundraising for Black Businesses Virtual Conference will give you practical information you can use immediately to raise funds for your business and also tell you where fundraising is headed as technology improves. 

You can sit back at home or work and hear from national experts.
