Event Details

Community Capital by Cutting Edge Capital

CoCap - A Community-Focused Pre-SOCAP Event

Interested in how communities can invest their money in local, social, and sustainable businesses?  Wondering how social capital supports thriving local communities?

Join us in Oakland for lunch and an afternoon of stimulating presentations and conversations!

CoCap is dedicated to empowering community ventures and locally-focused investors to build thriving communities together. 

We will be exploring the emerging world of Direct Public Offerings, local investing clubs and networks, crowdfunding, and other ways that communities can unlock previously inaccessible sources of local, grassroots capital.  This event will bring together community capital leaders from around the country to share their successes, challenges, and accumulated wisdom. 

Whether you are a business owner interested in raising money in your community, or a saver, investor, or community member that wants to learn about putting money to work locally, you will find plenty of inspiration, tools, and connections at the Community Capital Symposium.  Please join us!
