Community Wealth Builders

The MD Neighborhood Exchange is a new crowdfunding platform designed to connect great local businesses seeking capital with residents hoping to earn returns while strengthening our local economy.


What’s investment crowdfunding? Investment crowdfunding allows people to invest directly in local businesses, a process that used to be difficult. Recent changes in securities law now allow every adult to invest up to $2,200 into local businesses every year. Local businesses can raise up to $1.07 million annually through more than 30 federally-licensed online portals. Since 2016, when crowdfunding was legalized, more than 1,800 companies have raised a quarter of a billion dollars this way.

How it Works: We work one-on-one with businesses seeking growth capital interested in investment crowdfunding.
