The mission of the Local Investing Resource Center is to help expand local investment into small businesses and nonprofits by creating a website that will support local entrepreneurs, local investors, and local investing networks nationwide. Local investing benefits communities by helping them to become more financially self-reliant and by building networks of trusted local relationships. Currently, quality information about local investing is scarce on the internet. This non-profit project will create a comprehensive online resource center that educates local investors and business owners, provides forums for collaboration, advocates for local investing in the media, and facilitates the creation and advancement of local investor clubs and networks around the country.

Stay tuned for our official launch in October 2014!  Subscribe to our newsletter in order to receive our launch announcement, as well as local investing news and highlights from our site.
