Media Organization: Locavesting Media
Finance is being disrupted. Impact investing is going local. Main Street is making a comeback. And entrepreneurship is the new economic development. This creative ferment represents an opportunity for a new content platform to make sense of it all: Locavesting.com.
Created by a noted journalist and author, Locavesting.com is a new media brand focused on the emerging community capital field, where new financial models are helping to strengthen communities, open up access to capital and create a more regenerative economy. We cover ideas and solutions often overlooked by the mainstream press that address some of the biggest challenges facing society today, such as inequality and lack of economic opportunity.
We are a new media brand for a new era of finance. Our audience includes entrepreneurs, impact investors and the general public. Our reach is expanding rapidly, including though distribution deals with MarketWatch, CrowdneticWire and others.
Report and write stories for an exciting new digital media site that covers the emerging community capital and crowdfinance field. Contributors will produce stories and profiles about innovative new financial startups; social entrepreneurship; new ways of investing locally; leveling the playing field for women and minority entrepreneurs; crowdfunding developments; the entrepreneurial ecosystem (ie. accelerators and incubators); and other topics. You will work with an experienced editor to shape and craft stories. Knowledge of crowdfunding, financial tech and small business/entrepreneurship is helpful but not required. We are more interested in curiosity, good journalism skills and a passion for bringing important stories to light.
