The community capital movement is unfolding.

Localizing our money to strengthen communities has become a rallying cry for food cart vendors in Detroit, small manufacturers in Oregon, and pub owners in Indiana, to name a few.

If you’re a community advocate, you’re a community capital advocate. Now is the time to learn more, and that’s what this conference is for.

Access to capital is everything.

So how do communities access it? ComCap18 explores tools, knowledge, and strategies from leaders for leaders at every level who are working to improve access to community capital.

Join us as we discover how local investing mechanisms – from crowdfunding to changes in law – increase access to community capital for entrepreneurs and citizen investors.

“Finally, a place-based approach to growing the built, human, and natural capital in our communities, building the fabric of relationships that help communities thrive.”

—Stephanie Ryan, Senior Associate, B Lab

“Community Capital is not just money—it’s money that means something. It means involving the people who use your product, who eat your ice cream, who drive the same roads you do.”

—Stuart Phillips, Co-founder, Red Wagon Creamery
