In this episode of SwipeSum Chats, Michael Seaman sits down with Ched Wagner and Jeff Frankel of St. Louis-based crowdfunding platform Nvsted to talk about crowdfunding, non-alcoholic beer, and the future of the Missouri startup scene. Though Nvsted is Missouri-focused, their platform welcomes investors from all across the nation to participate in funding companies stuck in a "funding gap," where they've exhausted their personal capital but aren't ready to seek investments from venture capital groups.

We're focusing on getting the word out that Nvsted is a platform for anybody, not just the incredibly wealthy, to invest in a local business and help them to receive the funding they need.

In this quick 20-minute episode, you'll hear about how Nvsted came to be, how they led their first campaign to success, and plans for future Nvsted offerings. This episode is a must-listen for anyone involved in the St. Louis startup scene, whether you're an aspiring investor who doesn't know how to get involved or an entrepreneur looking for a creative way to grow your business.For more information about Nvsted, visit their website: nvstedwithus.com.
