There’s been a lot of buzz about crowd funding recently. From the federal JOBS act to news stories of businesses raising millions of dollars for future production, crowd funding seems to be the “golden ticket” for entrepreneurs looking to finance their business.

Crowd funding can seem too good to be true, and in some cases it is, as the stories of raising large sums of money tend to be the exception rather than the rule. But for some businesses, it can be a smart way to raise money without sacrificing equity or going into debt.

If you are considering crowd funding for your businesses, you won’t want to miss these upcoming events:
