Why We Crowdsourced 500 New Investors Online
Randy Paynter, Care2
Recently Care2, the world's largest social network for good, launched an online campaign on the equity crowdfunding platform StartEngine, which connects startups with investors online. Care2 wanted anyone to be able to share in the financial upside of its growth—not just a handful of VCs. The campaign raised over a quarter of a million dollars from nearly 500 investors in just 11 weeks. In this fireside chat, Care2 Founder and CEO Randy Paynter will be joined by StartEngine's Director of Business Development Kinsey Cronin to discuss their learnings and takeaways from the successful effort. They’ll also share their thoughts on why great societal change can come from democratized access.
