We are celebrating! On August 21st, 2012 Diane Sontum and Kim Vincent set out on a mission to empower entrepreneurship and business startups, and bolster social and financial capital, by creating localized rewards-based crowdfunding for entrepreneurs across the United States.
Over these past 10 years, The Local Crowd (TLC) has continued to focus on non-dilutive funding to bring the TLC platform to fruition. The TLC team has received several grants over the years. We are grateful for the collaboration of so many dedicated economic and community development organizations that bring our total grant fundraising for
TLC capacity building to over $1M.
The future vision is the creation of a member-owned national crowdfunding cooperative, which is currently under development.
