“Last year, we saw great companies present at SuperCrowd22, and we know we'll see more in 2023,” said NC3 Chair Chris Miller. “We love the incentive to invest opportunity provided by The Super Crowd, Inc, and its sponsors DealMaker and Dalmore, and we are convinced that we will see more community-building companies and more investments as a result.”

“NC3 is committed to the formation of community capital in a variety of ways,” said NC3 Interim Managing Director Cameron Rhudy. “Fostering community-focused investment crowdfunding in both local and diverse communities is an important part of our mission. Our live-pitch sessions at SuperCrowd23 are a tangible demonstration of our work.”

“NC3 is a great partner for SuperCrowd23,” said The Super Crowd CEO Devin Thorpe. “The nonprofit shares our passion for seeing capital make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities we care about. Using an impact lens for investing via crowdfunding is powerful.”

Private company investing is no longer limited to the well-heeled. In 2016, the Securities and Exchange Commission implemented Title III of the 2012 JOBS Act, allowing ordinary investors–not just the wealthy–to invest in businesses and organizations they care about via portals operated by FINRA-registered companies under Regulation Crowdfunding. Unlike rewards and donations-based crowdfunding, backers of investment crowdfunding campaigns may receive debt or equity that provides financial returns.

NC3 envisions a sustainable and democratic economy that works for everyone and intentionally includes individuals and communities historically excluded due to class, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Community capital is a set of strategies that allows people of any economic status to invest in their community. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit includes a multidisciplinary team of legal experts, educators, lenders, entrepreneurs, and community advocates. Learn more and join the coalition athttps://nc3now.org.
