Jason Graf, founder and CEO of crowdfunding site Crowdit will be spreading the crowdfunding gospel at an event in Springfield, Illinois titled; The JOBS Act and Crowdfunding: What is it and How Can I Use it to Acquire Capital Today? In this presentation, Graf will explain crowdfunding, the JOBS Act, and how entrepreneurs can position themselves to provide ancillary services in this emerging marketplace.
The Crowdit site is described as a platform;
…in which “Dreamers” submit projects to crowdit.com and “Believers” can then pledge to give support to those projects and help make dreams come true. At CrowdIt we believe everyone at some point in their life has had a dream that never came true due to a lack of capital, now with the help of CrowdIt those dreams can be a reality. CrowdIt marries the best of crowd funding websites with the power of social media to create a platform where there are no limits in the dreams that you can achieve.
Crowdit is currently in the midst of a “launch challenge” where submitting projects have the opportunity to win a $10,000 prize.
Prior to launching Crowdit Graf founded Graf Financial Services and Paragon Global, where he served as CEO, owner and manager for three years.
The event in Springfield takes place on April 3rd at the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce.
