$1,000,000 Goal Met!
We surpassed our $1,000,000 goal! Through the commitment of rural communities, TLC assisted 103 local businesses to raise more than one million dollars from more than 7,000 contributors. When you consider the average contribution is $75, it takes many passionate contributors to reach $1 million!
The Local Crowd, LLC creates local crowdfunding ecosystems that support the growth and sustainability of local businesses and organizations.
This year has many opportunities for us and for communities who want to join us in this exciting journey.
Two CNPP Grant Winners Chosen
The Local Crowd is one of several organizations providing services to Wyoming communities through the Community Navigator Pilot Program (CNPP) a grant awarded to the Wyoming SBDC through SBA.
The Local Crowd chose two regional hosts to participate in this program. We are happy to announce the community host in the Northeast Wyoming region is New Energy Capital in Gillette. A coalition of five counties representing public and private partners include Campbell, Crook, Johnson, Sheridan, and Weston. The second Wyoming region is Central East, hosted by Advance Casper, and includes Natrona, Converse, and Niobrara counties.
These two regional coalitions will serve as advisory roles in supporting crowdfunders in their respective regions.
