Member Discount for Community Capital: Seattle Seminar Series


September 25, 2013

HUB Seattle

220 2nd Ave S,

Seattle, WA 98104 


Seattle Good Business Network is excited to announce Community Capital: Seattle, a series of seminars designed to educate, connect, and spark dialogue among Seattle's economic stakeholders around the emerging field of community capital. The series kicks off with a day learning about the local investment revolution from Michael Shuman, one of the nation's foremost authorities on the subject.


Shuman argues that the best way to tune up and supercharge the Seattle economy is by fixing our broken investment system, which could result in $15 trillion transferred from Wall Street to Main Street, or about $50,000 per person. How can metro Seattle residents begin to invest locally? How can local businesses take advantage of these funds? What new projects might be started?


Come spend a day learning about the local investment revolution from one of the nation's foremost authorities on the subject. Whether you are an entrepreneur, consumer, philanthropist, policymaker, or student, you will never think about our local economy the same way.

Tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets
. Capital Hill Chamber members receive 15% off with code GOODBUDDY.

Michael Shuman's Local Investment 101 made possible by our co-sponsor, the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, supporting sponsor, BECU, and our topic sponsor, the Bullitt Foundation.
