You want to start a LION group in your community, right? Here are some resources to get you going…
- Amy Cortese has written a book called Locavesting: The Revolution in Local Investing and How to Profit from It. This is a must-read if you’re starting to explore all the ways your community can invest in itself. There’s a terrific Q&A with Amy in Fast Company here.
- This Q&A with James Frasier of Local 2020 helped me when I was exploring LION for Madison.
- BALLE’s blog is irregularly updated, but the tips and ideas are top-notch.
- James Frasier offers a LION Startup Kit ($150) and 30-minute increments of consulting time ($75) at his store, here. James was my go-to guy before I launched LION in Madison, and I published a Q&A with him here. You can read more about James here.
