A Higher Purpose
Crowdfunding Offerings, Ltd was initially established during the infancy of the equity crowdfunding movement. However, founders Marshall Neel and Anthony Edwards soon recognized that what communities need is a set of community economic development tools enabling local government, businesses and community organizations a mechanism to work together to improve the local economy. Therefore, we started our endeavor by creating the Main Street Crowd Platform and the Clowd system where community businesses, financial institutions, governments and the non-profit sector can pursue and support economic development related endeavors in conjunction with improving their investment climate and business environment to enhance their competitiveness, retain jobs and improve incomes. The Main Street Crowd Platform is focused on promoting small business, economic development, community development through our Clowdz™ which facilitate rewards-based crowdfunding supported by community based organizations.
Clowdz™ provide a community funding network; a website within our platform formed and administered by a government (town, city, state) or a non-profit organization related to business or community development. Clowd administrators set the geographic scope of the clowd and the types of projects it will showcase. Clowdz™ also promote free listings for local professionals such as lawyers, accountants, marketing groups, business consultants, etc., who can provide insight and guidance to those creating projects.
