There are expected to be as many as 530 different crowdfunding platforms by the end of the year, so how do you know which one, if any, could work for you? If you have heard about a new way to raise some capital for your business but don’t know much about it, get a basic overview of the crowdfunding landscape with Bob Cohen, of the Braintree Business Development Center in Mansfield. Cohen has worked with many entrepreneurs to help them identify sources of funding and other resources. One of Ohio’s Thomas Edison Technology Incubators, part of the JumpStart Entrepreneurial Network and a MicroSoft BizSpark™ partner, Braintree coordinates both the Appleseed Microfinance Revolving Loan Program and the Tech Sprout Mini-Grant Program.
