As we gear up for the 1:00 PM Eastern, November 21st, 2023, meeting of the Impact Cherub Club, we invite you to join us. The club is an informal gathering of friends hosted by The Super Crowd, Inc., a public benefit corporation, who meet up to review impact investments everyone is eligible to make, and virtually anyone can afford. We share responsibility for completing basic due diligence before making investments. No one is required to invest.
There are no dues or fees to participate, and I don’t touch the money. When members invest, they do so directly for their own accounts. We benefit from new members only by the fresh perspectives they bring. Please join us!
