Local Investment Networks (LIN) connect local business owners in need of capital with local investors. The mission of a LIN is to keep local capitol rooted and revolving within the community.
LIN is not a venture fund, a bank or a financial institution. LIN consists of individuals who support surrounding businesses by investing locally – putting their funds to work within their neighborhoods. By investing in a local enterprise you support your local economy, facilitate greater economic self-sufficiency and increase the local quality of life.
LIN is an alternative to banks or other commercial lenders. The post-recession credit market has tightened, and LIN offers businesses an alternative to borrowing money from your neighbors, customers and others interested in your success.
For Investors: LIN is a way to see where your money is going and who it is helping. It enables you to invest in the local businesses that make your community the unique place it is.
