In this episode, Capital Insight co-hosts and securities attorneys Jenny Kassan and Michelle Thimesch sit down to have a chat about creating an ecosystem for small business by taking seriously the adage that change moves at the speed of trust.
“Lack of sufficient capital is the number one reason for business failure. Without adequate funding – and not just any funding but funding that allows them to grow their business without too much pressure – they’re probably just not going to make it. The tools are there to raise large amounts of money for any small business . . . but after 6 years of national crowdfunding being legal . . . we’re realizing there is so much more that is needed for entrepreneurs to get the funding they need.”
“More than half of our country’s adult population consists of investors. The majority of people in our country are investors, but they don’t even think of themselves as investors. …That’s the third pillar: empowering people who have investment money to use that money in a way that is more consistent with what they want to see in the world.”
