CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Investors' Circle launched a brand-new crowdfunding opportunity to the 60 companies currently being reviewed for the IC Fall 2012 Venture Fair & Forum, Oct 24-25 in NYC. Over 225 impact companies applied to IC for funding as an investor network dedicated to supporting early-stage for-profit social and/or environmental entrepreneurs. 12 will be selected to present to 150 investors at the Venture Fair on Oct 24th and the others receive an invitation to showcase throughout the Forum on Oct 25th to 250 attendees.  

Every company has its own page to send supporters to, each of which comes complete with an individual dollar-tracking meter. The tax-deductible crowdfunding donations are set to cover the cost to attend the conference, excluding travel fees.  Launched on Friday, September 14th, the crowdfunding window for Fall 2012 Entrepreneurs will close on Thursday, September 27th at midnight. 

"We hope all 27 companies participating in this crowdfunding opportunity are able to offset their costs 100%,” enthuses Justin Desrosiers, Director of Strategy & Operations at IC, a non-profit organization celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. "Every little bit we all do can translate to important changes in the world. That's the beauty of crowdfunding for impact.”  To learn more about the companies and this crowdfunding opportunity, please visit.
