New SnapShot and Whitepaper from CLi

CommunityLeader has uploaded two new must-read documents to it's website: "The Cost of Launching a Portal," and "Designing an EB5 Solution."

CLi has engaged over 140 prospective portal operators in the design and development of their digital investment business. We are constantly reminded that launching a portal is a new venture. If there is an existing business migrating capital acquisition activities online, the dynamics of setting up a digital environment have a direct impact on all aspects of the pre-existing business. The planning involved necessitates looking at timelines, resource requirements, and the necessary capital to make it happen. "The Cost of Launching a Portal" lends unique and valuable insight into what costs are incurred before a portal starts to make money.

Administered by the USCIS since 1990, the EB5 program holds significant appeal to projects seeking alternative financing as part of their capitalization efforts. Over the past 10 years, the dramatically changing political, regulatory, and market landscape have put incredible pressures on the traditional players in the EB5 market. "Designing an EB5 Solution" provides a detailed overview CLi's proposed EB5 solution.

CommunityLeader is excited to bring you both of these documents and would love for you to download them here. Head over to our FaceBook page and let us know what you think!

CommunityLeader’s CEO and Co-Founder, Joseph Barisonzi, on Big Pitch Radio Show with Kevin Harrington and Jason Garey

Burlingame, CA -- The Big Pitch Radio Show with Kevin Harrington and Jason Garey aired their interview with CommunityLeader’s co-founder and CEO Joseph Barisonzi on Tuesday afternoon.

Together, Kevin and Jason bring overwhelming experience to the table. Kevin Harrington is well known as the inventor of the infomercial, the pioneer of “As Seen on TV,” and the original shark on “Shark Tank.” Jason Garey has owned several businesses and is the founder of Business Radio Networks, which is the home of over 75 shows set to air summer of 2015, with the goal to bring exposure to small businesses and entrepreneurs.

"Big Pitch Radio is a great asset for companies seeking capital to tell their story," said Joseph Barisonzi. "We were proud to have an opportunity to discuss how the changing capital markets are impacted by crowdfunding, technology and the new portal marketplaces."

During the show, Kevin Herrington commented, "When people are looking to invest their money, they want to know they're dealing with the right people. That's one of the powerful things that CommunityLeader brings to the table, because you guys (CommunityLeader) know the business, you know the structure and legal side, which can be a minefield. So going with an expert...somebody that knows what the requirements are. That's so important."

Mr. Barisonzi stated in the interview, "CommunityLeader is fundamentally here to transform the private capital market so that individual people have the opportunity to directly invest in the businesses and projects they believe in, and entrepreneurs can access the right capital at the right time to support their businesses."
