CraftNOW Presents: CapitalNOW
This year, CraftNOW launched CapitalNOW, an ongoing series that brings together various capital resources in Philadelphia. CraftNOW will host a discussion about crowdfunding and introduce Kiva, an international nonprofit that offers creative entrepreneurs interest-free small business loans. Kiva uses crowdfunding to make affordable loans accessible to a wide range of small businesses by employing alternative eligibility requirements and a community of nearly two million lenders. The program features Kiva’s Program Director Emily Keebler, Associate Director of the Creative Business Accelerator Katie Johnson, and multi-disciplinary artist and Kiva loan recipient Jessica Alpern Brown.
