For the first time in 80 years, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is permitting a private company to publicly raise capital. GrowthFountain is that company, connecting investors with entrepreneurs looking to get their businesses off the ground. It’s a way for people to bond and build local economies. New businesses can lead to more jobs, increased tax dollars and more local spending.
A single raindrop does not fill a bucket. But a shower of raindrops will fill that same bucket in no time. Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union has chosen to partner with GrowthFountain because we think that this innovative company can help create more opportunities for individual and community growth.
Through crowdfunding, local entrepreneurs will be introduced to a wider network of investors who are looking for new or unique opportunities.

- If you’re an Investor
If you’re an Entrepreneur
As an Entrepreneur, you will be able to raise capital by issuing “shares” of your business. When listing your company offering on the GrowthFountain site, you will include the principal terms of the offering, including the type of security being offered, the overall amount of the offering and, if applicable, an expected closing date for the offering.
If you’re an Investor
Investors will have a selection of local offerings to choose from. You will essentially be buying equity in the business or businesses selected, purchasing as many or as few shares as desired based on on the offering and per share price.
We believe in building the communities we serve. By introducing GrowthFountain to our members, Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is pleased to be able to make you aware of potential new investment options that may be available to you right here in our region.
