A crowdfunding initiative for the five northeast Wyoming counties aims to give different initiatives access to funding to jumpstart various ventures.
The Local Crowd is a nationwide crowdfunding platform that hosts numerous ventures that are raising money. The NEW Crowd initiative “is a collaboration of regional economic development organizations working together to increase access to capital to both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors throughout Northeast Wyoming,” according to a release.
“The NEW Crowd initiative is to get folks in northeast Wyoming if they have projects to raise capital,” said Curtis Burdette, Vice President of Energy Capital Economic Development in Gillette. “So, whether that’s nonprofit or whether that’s for-profit, entrepreneurs, or nonprofits can use this for specific projects to raise a certain amount of money, setting up that goal.”
