Guest Post: The Language of Crowdfunding, Philanthropy and Impact Investing | Social Velocity
Guest Post: The Language of Crowdfunding, Philanthropy and Impact Investing | Social Velocity: One of those non-work related blogs that I read is Popville, which chronicles activities in Washington, DC neighborhoods. This July and last, two local businesses sought financing through crowdfunding platforms, and reached out to Popville readers for support. Both cited the community focus of their enterprises as reasons to financially support their efforts. What ensued in the comment thread of both posts provides a snapshot into how those outside of the philanthropy and impact investing field understand and discuss crowdfunding, charitable giving, and investing with the intention to generate social and financial returns.
