Want to learn more about local investment? Seattle Good Business Network will be hosting an event series entitled Community Capital: Seattle. The series is designed to educate, connect, and spark dialogue around the emerging field of community finance.
The series kicks off September 25th at HUB Seattle with an all-day workshop with acclaimed author, speaker, and local economy luminary, Michael Shuman. Shuman argues our investment system is broken, and that fixing it could result in $15 trillion transferred from Wall Street to Main Street, or about $50,000 per person. Come and learn how residents can invest locally, how local businesses can take advantage of these funds, and what new projects might be started.
Future monthly sessions will cover creative models that are pioneering the financing of the new economy. Whether you are an entrepreneur, consumer, philanthropist, policymaker, or student, you will never think about our local economy the same way!
Tickets and more information is available at www.seattlenetwork.org/commcap. Friends of Slow Money Northwest receive a 15% with the code “GOODBUDDY.”
We hope to see you there!
