On March 18th, we held our first #ComCapChat on twitter. Our very own ComCap16 Twitter account, @ComCapCon, hosted, engaging speakers, attendees and interested Twitter users with an interactive Q & A focusing on impact investing, community building and local economies — all in appropriate bursts of 140 characters or less.

Our discussion on local investing and community capital involved several of our speakers, including our own @amyepearl, joined by @locavesting, @arnohesse, @AJzeoli,@ChrisM49221, @powerwood53 and @twotonguespdx, to name a quick few. This was a keen preview of what’s in store for the actual conference, ComCap16, coming up in a few weeks April 26-28th, right here in Portland, OR.

Take a look at what unfolded, what piques your interest, and get ready for our second and final #ComCapChat on April 1st to continue sparking conversation and connecting folks as we get approach the big event. Tweet, tweet.
