Indiana's Secretary of State Presents Crowdfunding Initiative

Seal: IN Secretary of State The Indiana Secretary of State's office has recently focused on two initiatives: business one-stop and crowdfunding. The Business One-Stop portal is in the process of eliminating confusion for Hoosier business owners by offering a "one stop shop" for all business transactions within state government. Instead of business owners registering their business with multiple state agencies, which can often times cause unnecessary stresses, the Secretary of State's office is working to make it so businesses will eventually only need to register once within the office.

The crowdfunding initiative offers a new way for Hoosier entrepreneurs to raise money in order to start or continue a business right here in Indiana with the help of Hoosier investors. Not only will this strengthen the state's economy, but it also opens the door to a new type of Hoosier investor.

Indiana Secretary of State, Connie Lawson will speak on these topics at Center City Richmond's Brown Bag Tech Lunch on Monday, September 29th at 11:30 a.m. Register online, $10/person. For more information, call 765.962.8151.
