Florence Hardy - truCrowd
Our guest for episode 8 is Florence Hardy with truCrowd Illinois. Florence is an entrepreneur with a law background and building a business that “democratizes investing”. truCrowd is a crowd-funding platform that makes investing into small businesses and startups accessible to everybody. At the same time, it makes raising capital easier for small businesses. It challenges the traditional private company equity investing model that has traditionally only been available to Certified Investors such as angel investors, family offices, and institutional investors.
truCrowd Illionois is part of the larger national truCrowd platform, which is a startup itself and expanding into more and more states. Each state has different regulations around crowd-sourced equity financing, and establishes local partnerships across states and municipalities to educate local businesses about this new fundraising option.
truCrowd has free webinars and live seminars for businesses and individuals who are interested in learning more. More information is available on the truCrowd website, and you can also email Florence directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Join us as we discuss how truCrowd is making investing in private companies, and fundraising for these companies, easier for everyone.
