E-Community Investors Forum @ Nehemiah Week 2018
Ask any entrepreneur what the most challenging thing about launching a business is, and chances are they will mention the same thing: funding. Ask any investor what the most challenging thing about meeting their investment goals are, and they will mention that it is finding the next big business idea that is worth their money. So it makes sense that, over the last few years, an entire industry has sprung up to connect capital-hungry aspiring entrepreneurs with investors and venture capitalists who can write the checks to fund their business plans.
As an investor or entrepreneur with specific kingdom values and principles, finding the perfect business match will determine the kind of social and eternal impact that you will accomplish in the marketplace through your business. What better place to find this match than at a gathering of like-minded entrepreneurs that share the same faith, beliefs, and values. It increases the odds of a perfect match and helps connect the smart money to the right opportunities in record time.
The E-Community Investors Forum at Nehemiah Week is an event that is specifically designed to connect Biblical Entrepreneurs to investors, and investors to kingdom impact opportunities. The forum will be conducted in a Shark-Tank style event, intensifying one of the most stressful, sweat-inducing, make-or-break moments in capitalism: the business pitch.
Just ask Hosanna Building Contractor, who made their pitch at the forum for the first time 2 years ago and is today fully-funded.
“What I love about the GKIN (Global Kingdom Investors Network) is that it puts us in touch with other kingdom business owners! We gain insight, support, wisdom, and valuable relationships as we navigate through our business journey. We have been connected with 3 other GKIN members who have invested or are interested! God provides for every step of our journey – whether it be knowledge, financially or relationally, through GKIN!”
– Jane Blankenship, Hosanna Building Contractors
To qualify for the forum, presenters must have completed the BE Program with a completed kingdom business plan, be a Diamond member of the E-Community, and have a Kingdom Business Coach. Business plans are vetted to ensure quality, viability, and kingdom impact. Even the investors participating in the forum are Diamond members of the E-Community and have gone through at least BE I, ensuring shared values with the entrepreneurs. To date, the E-Community Global Kingdom Investors Network has raised over $1.82M debt and equity investment for kingdom companies from three countries and three investors have successfully exited their investment.
