Case Studies

The following brief case studies were compiled by our staff to provide real examples of small businesses and organizations using various grassroots finance strategies to raise investment dollars from their communities. Grassroots finance or community capital can be used for a wide variety of enterprises, organizations, and projects, and the case studies below provide just a few examples. We intend to add more in Fall 2018 or early 2019. If you have a suggestion about an enterprise that would make a good case study please send your suggestion to [email protected].
