She defined crowdfunding as, a large number of people donating small amounts of money to projects through a crowdfunding site or platform. Karen stated, “Focusing on preparing people to give early will have an appearance of a successful crowdfunding campaign”, pointing out that people like backing campaigns that look like they’ll be successful.

A testimonial was given by Jason McCoy, Owner, The Organic Turf Company. His company is located in Tipp City, which provides lawn and landscape fertility, weed control, and pest control to residential and commercial clients in Southwest Ohio. A Dayton mentor  coached Jason through the development of defined job roles and how the roles fit into the hierarchy of his company.
