CrowdfundNC

Localstake NC was formed to help North Carolina based businesses successfully use newly available laws to raise investment capital to fund start-up and growth. The NC PACES Act is a new North Carolina state law that enables small business and startups to utilize investment crowdfunding by opening up all North Carolina as potential sources of capital.

Investment crowdfunding has grown into into a significant source of funding in many areas of the national economy, including startup financing, small business lending, and various types of project financing. With PACES, everyone in North Carolina can participate in this growing opportunity. Now any North Carolina resident can invest in a North Carolina startup or small business which creates a PACES compliant debt or equity offering. A new or existing North Carolina business can raise up to $2M per offering with a North Carolina PACES Offering (NCPO), or up to $250K per offering with a Local Public Offering (LPO).

CrowdfundNC has helped make the NC PACES Act a reality, and helped bring Localstake to North Carolina. CrowdfundNC brings a wealth of educational resources and third-party providers together to support the local NC community beyond those available on the Localstake NC platform. Visit CrowdfundNC for more information on local resources for business and investors.
