Recent Success Stories

Localstake NC was formed to help businesses impacting North Carolina successfully use newly available laws to raise investment capital to fund start-up and growth.

Investment crowdfunding has been used by thousands of entrepreneurs to raise billions of dollars in investment capital since 2012. From pre-seed to Series X capital, startups, other local businesses and real estate can leverage this source of debt or equity capital.

CrowdfundNC helped bring Localstake to the Southeast for businesses to leverage this new source of capital, their community investing side-by-side with experienced investors. CrowdfundNC brings a partner network and Launch Readiness program to businesses which aims to prepare them to raise capital. As a Broker Dealer, Localstake provides deal structuring, offering documentation and a platform to facilitate the raise process. Visit CrowdfundNC.com for more information on local resources for business and investors.
