Crowdfunding Seminar: Raise Business Capital Using The JOBS Act

Title III Crowdfunding Regulation of the JOBS Act Seminar on Oct. 1, 2016. Sign up now!

It has been against the law to solicit funding from the general public until just this May when Title III – Crowdfunding Regulation – of the JOBS Act passed allowing us to go online and raise between $100,000 and $50 million to jumpstart or grow our business dreams. It is estimated that entrepreneurs will raise up to 3.2 Trillion Dollars by 2020!

“The Principles of Crowdfunding and How To Raise Capital Using The JOBS Act”

I am writing to invite you to an in-depth seminar on Saturday, October 1st from 10 am – 2 pm with a light lunch catered by GoodOnYa© Organics, Encinitas.

You will walk away with true enlightenment on how to raise money for your business. I will update this post with a map to the meeting room in Encintias, or just sign up and receive an automatic link.

We have 4 major speakers: 

Amy Wan, Esq., Securities Attorney specializing in Crowdfunding law and partner at Crowdfunding Lawyers. 

Ash Kumra, Author, speaker & entrepreneur and national authority on the Crowdfunding process.

Kris Buchanan, Olympic Athlete and founder of the first B-Corporation in the organic food industry in Encinitas, GOODONYA Cafe & Deli.

Matt Morrison, Multi-dimentional business man, leader in for-profit as well as non-profit, and an educator.

It is estimated that Crowdfunding will inject close to $65 Billion into the global economy in 2016, and over $3.2 Trillion by 2020. The Crowdfunding industry has raised capital for millions of individuals from college students to small business owners, to artists and filmmakers, to conscious food purveyors, to the next big tech explosion. 

Anything is possible!

2. The Agenda: AGENDA-CrowdVesting-Media.pdf

The purpose of producing the seminar is to support small business growth in America, create jobs, and allow benefactors to contribute to the success of other people’s lives. 

The Producer: Jerri Nachman

I am a member of the North County Eco-Alliance (NCEA) and designed and built this WordPress website last year. Also a member of Conscious Capitalism San Diego, a group of conscious business owners who are for-purpose, for-benefit, for-profit entrepreneurs.

You may know I have been a marketing director in the securities industry since 1999. Until the JOBS Act was signed into law in April of 2012, just us regular folks could not raise investment capital to either start or grow our own businesses. Now we can. Let’s do it together!

Looking forward to seeing you there! Any questions, please contact me. You can also forward this post to anyone you know would benefit from it.

San Luis Rey River Park plans move forward

The county has notched another small link in its long-range plans to create a nine-mile linear park along North County’s San Luis Rey River by deciding last week to buy a 60-acre parcel in Bonsall that was once the northern section of the now defunct San Luis Rey Downs golf course.

The $3.1 million purchase brings the number of acres acquired for the park to 533. Some day, many years from now, the scenic park will spread across 1,600 acres that line both sides of the river, stretching from eastern Oceanside all the way to Interstate 15 in Fallbrook.

Food for Thought….

  • Approximately 40% of food in the U.S. goes to waste.
  • Nearly 34 million tons of food waste is generated in the US each year
  • Over 97% of food waste generated ends up in the landfill.
  • Every ton of food wasted results in 3.8 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Reducing food waste by 20% would provide enough food to feed 25 million people

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences.

Featuring interviews with TED lecturer Tristram Stewart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Climate Action Commission

On Wednesday, October 14th, the Solana Beach City Council announces a new citizen committee – the Climate Action Commission – that will help the City formulate a Climate Action Plan, propose mitigation measures to reduce GHG emissions, and comply with California law.

See the attachment for details: Staff Report item C.2

As a strong advocate for climate action, you might want to start thinking about whether you, yourself want to apply for a position on this very important blue-ribbon commission.

At the same Council meeting, the Council will entertain the first reading of a new ordinance to limit the use of EPS (expanded polystyrene) in food containers within the community.

See the attachment for Staff Report on item C.3
