Regulation Crowdfunding is a game changer for how businesses in the United States are funded. Now, businesses at any stage can raise up to $1,070,000 per year, via debt or equity offering, and anyone can invest.

On October 16th at 12:30pm, Hillary Talbot, founder of Sail Community Capital, will present at the Placer Business Resource Center, on regulation crowdfunding. Topics include: What type of business is likely to have a successful raise? Also, how are investors paid back? Entrepreneurs will learn what type of offering is right for their company—promissory note or equity—as well as how to structure a package and select a fair rate of return. Additionally, they will walk away with an understanding of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules around marketing Regulation Crowding raises.

Hillary has a decade’s worth of experience in scaling small businesses throughout the San Francisco Bay and Reno/Tahoe regions. She founded her second company, être, in 2011, to guide entrepreneurs past the obstacles that often cause them to stumble—management issues, lack of a strategic plan and difficulty obtaining funding.

In 2018, Hillary founded Sail Community Capital to help startups and small businesses access capital in their communities, via Regulation Crowdfunding. Sail helps clients prepare their offerings, tell their stories and market their raises. Hillary is also a business advisor at the California Manufacturing Technology Center, the Sierra Small Small Business Development Center and the Silicon Valley Small Business Development Center.
