San Mateo, California (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
CommunityLeader Inc. announced today the expansion of its popular Web Bites educational series on Equity Crowdfunding with the addition of Series 2, 3 and 4. Each Web Bite is a concise 15-minute free webinar presentation followed by a short Q&A session for participants. “Our Crowdfunding Web Bites series is a great alternative for busy owners who are excited about the potential opportunity of Equity Crowdfunding and want answers now.” said Scott Bachman, chief marketing officer of CommunityLeader.
The first Web Bites series, launched earlier this month and running again in November, included the following 15 minute interviews with Joseph Barisonzi, CEO of CommunityLeader, on “Crowdfunding Basics”:
● “What is Equity Crowdfunding?”
● “Who is Equity Crowdfunding for?”
● “When should I consider Crowdfunding?”
● “How do I prepare for Crowdfunding?”
“I've been researching Equity Crowdfunding for a client who's very interested in entering the space, and the amount of information on the Internet is almost overwhelming," said Mary Thorsby of Thorsby & Associates, a San Francisco and Louisville-based corporate communications agency. "CommunityLeader's Web Bites provided the solid foundation I needed to fully understand the possibilities that this emerging industry offers and where my client can deliver the most value. It was a perfect place to start."
This expansion includes adding three four part presentations on “The Crowdfunding Process”, “Crowdfunding Business Types” and “Entering the Crowdfunding Business”. “The Crowdfunding Process” includes a review of the steps, projects and tasks business need to do to prepare and Equity Crowdfunding campaign. “Crowdfunding Business Types” explores how Equity Crowdfunding works for different types of businesses and its owners. “Entering the Crowdfunding Business” explores how business professionals, organizations and even portals can quickly come to market to position themselves as community leaders in the Equity Crowdfunding market.
"For years we have struggled to grow and up to now have self-financed every step. Despite our profitability, traditional financing avenues won't look at us because we're not a "flashy" kind of business because we just serve food,” said Parker Van Hart, founder and CEO of Tasty Buddha Restaurants of Gainesville, Florida. “Now Equity Crowdfunding comes along and I believe it is going to be a game changer for my business and community and CommunityLeader's Web Bites helped get all my questions answered.”
