What is this conference all about?

SuperCrowd22 is the biggest event of the year at the intersection of investment crowdfunding and impact investing, where impact crowdfunding happens and community capital grows.

Investment crowdfunding is an innovative way to invest your money, even if you don’t have a lot. Rich people have always been allowed to put money into startups or to back the local bar or diner with a few other rich friends. Investment crowdfunding created a legal process for ordinary people to do the same. The unique risks and rewards of investing in these types of businesses are now available to everyone.

Impact investing is a completely different discipline. It is the practice of investing money with the goal of a financial return and a social impact objective. For instance, you might want to invest in a startup that makes EVs to both make money and fight climate change.

Impact investing began with that moniker with wealthy families, and institutions have since joined the practice. Ordinary investors, however, have had a more difficult time entering the space.

The laws that enable investment crowdfunding, of course, enable impact crowdfunding, the opportunity for you to invest in social enterprises that do good and have the potential to return your money—and then some.

Luminary Leaders Will Speak at SuperCrowd22
The speakers at SuperCrowd22 will include a roster of 50+ industry leaders, practitioners, and experts, including members of the NC3 board and staff. 

What You’ll Learn and How You’ll Benefit From Attending
Whether you are looking to learn how to invest or how to raise money—or both—this is the event for you.

Connect with Experts
Not only will you hear from experts like those listed above, but you’ll also be able to network  with them and others like them. About half of the time we’re together, you’ll be in smaller groups of fewer than 50 people, allowing you to ask questions virtually face-to-face. Using comments, you’ll be able to connect with even more people in your sessions.

Unconference Sessions
We’ll also hold three hours of “unconference” small group sessions. In these meetings, you’ll be able to find people who care about causes, problems, and opportunities that align with your interests. After you register, you can even volunteer to host one of these peer-led discussions.

Impact Crowdfunding Live
A highlight of the event will be a live investment pitch session. Ten entrepreneurs raising money via regulation crowdfunding on one of the FINRA-registered platforms will pitch to the entire audience. Then a panel of experienced investors will ask questions, before the full audience submits theirs.
