What is a Community Public Offering (CPO) ?  

The CPO is a form of crowdfunding developed and approved for the state of Oregon. It allows Oregonians to invest directly in one another, it supports the development and growth of small local businesses, and it keeps the profits local. Investors purchasing notes get to come along with us for this historic ride into the development of a new market, and they are the people who put their money where their values are.
