Raising money is difficult for any entrepreneur, but veteran-owned small businesses in particular tend to struggle with capital raising. A new program in North Carolina aims to help.
INVESTinNC, a Wilmington, NC-based crowdfunding education company, has launched an investment crowdfunding program specifically for veteran entrepreneurs. The company is recruiting six veteran entrepreneurs looking to raise at least $250,000 to take part in a cohort-style program where they will create their offering documents, launch, and market their investment crowdfunding offerings at the same time. The deadline to apply is November 15.
The Veterans 6-Pack program, as it is called, is the first of a suite of programs designed to help underserved entrepreneurs such as veterans, women, and minorities gain access to capital, says Seth Jacobsen, VP of Sales and Marketing for INVESTinNC’s parent company LogicBay, a sales and marketing software provider.
