The Super Crowd, Inc. Story

The Super Crowd, Inc. (TSCI) fosters the growth of impact crowdfunding through education, training and pitch events for investors and entrepreneurs in collaboration with industry players. 

Impact crowdfunding refers to the intersection of investment crowdfunding and impact investing, which overlaps substantially with building community capital.

The events include:
  • Annual Virtual Events. In 2022, Devin Thorpe, the founder and CEO of TSCI, along with 25 co-host companies and organizations, successfully hosted the inaugural SuperCrowd22 event. SuperCrowd23 is scheduled for May 10-11, 2023. Dozens of speakers and more than a dozen co-hosts have already committed to participate. The annual SuperCrowdXX events feature:
    • Expert keynote addresses
    • Training workshops for in-depth learning
    • Panel discussions of critical issues
    • Networking sessions
    • Live pitch sessions in partnership with a nonprofit
  • Local Popup Events. Beginning in 2023, TSCI will host local events in cities and towns across the country. Shareholders will participate in choosing locations. Designed for 50 to 100 participants, popup events will feature expert training, including some provided by Devin Thorpe.
  • Virtual Monthly Sessions. The virtual monthly sessions may include training, expert interviews or live pitch sessions in partnership with a nonprofit.

Revenue is generated for all the events primarily through sponsorships. Additional revenue will be generated through ticket sales. The focus on sponsorships is strategic for assuring that the events are affordable to attend.

Collaboration is a founding principle of TSCI. Organizing successful events requires that many people and organizations come together with a shared goal of fostering the growth of impact crowdfunding for community capital.

Devin Thorpe founded TSCI specifically to deepen collaboration by creating affordable ownership opportunities for partnering organizations and individuals. By allowing strategic partners to purchase ownership in TSCI, the interests of the host and participating event sponsors, co-hosts, speakers and attendees will be further aligned.

SuperCrowd23 was a huge success. For investors, nothing matters more than the financial outcomes, so let me start there. Revenue grew 65% over 2022! That's huge progress. Before overhead, the event was solidly profitable. We're successfully proving the model.

We had over 100 people on the program!
We delivered 25 breakout sessions!
Experts presented 14 different workshops.
We had 13 panel discussions, including an 11-member CEO panel moderated by Crowdfund Main Street CEO Michelle Thimesch.
Twelve people won microgrants.
Ten companies pitched at SuperCrowd23.
We delivered four general sessions.
Three experts grilled the entrepreneurs who pitched.
We presented two SuperCrowd23 Impact Crowdfunder of the Year Awards, one to Aptera and the other to World Tree.
We featured two hours of virtual trade show sessions.
We enjoyed an hour of VIP networking.

Overall, the event was a huge success.

Hi Devin, this is great to hear and glad I could catch your pitch during the Angels of Mainstreet gathering the other day. One thing I'm still not clear on is what the potential financial return to investors could look like? Is it in the form of dividends, do you see TSCI being acquired down the road, etc?

Also, I would be interested in backing the campaign using my self-directed IRA, but that would require you to set up an account with them. I use AltoIRA. Let me know if you would be open to that, and glad to discuss offline, too.

Chuck, thanks for following up on the Angels of Main Street pitch. I was dealing with peak covid that day, so I'm thrilled to hear I was coherent enough to garner your interest.

You've asked great questions. Let me tackle them one at a time:

"...what the potential financial return to investors could look like? Is it in the form of dividends, do you see TSCI being acquired down the road, etc?"

We have plans to grow the business tenfold from 2023 levels over the next five years. We can continue growing thereafter. We'll strive to be profitable in 2024, allowing us to begin paying dividends. We intend to grow the dividend payments parallel with the growth of profits. Note that my compensation will be those same dividends, paid on a pro-rata basis. So, for me to earn $50,000 of dividend income, I'll have to pay $2 per share in dividends. That's a big incentive for me to drive the growth of profits.

Ultimately, we'll build a team of people who help to plan and organize events and who develop relationships with the network of people I know and call upon as experts. That team will represent a going concern that can be sold to another player in the industry. Note that the pre-money valuation for this offering is just $300,000. That means that even after allowing for the dilution associated with this offering if we sell the business for $1 million, we'd have tripled the value of the business--on top of paying dividends.

"Also, I would be interested in backing the campaign using my self-directed IRA, but that would require you to set up an account with them. I use AltoIRA. Let me know if you would be open to that, and glad to discuss offline, too."

As far as making an investment using your self-directed IRA account, that is absolutely possible! The question you have about creating an account with them should be directed to Crowdfund Main Street. I will make sure they get in touch with you. I believe you know Michelle and how to get in touch with her. Reply here if that isn't the case, and we'll make sure you two connect.

Again, thanks for your interest, Chuck.

Today, I shared a new podcast episode with my community. You can find it here:
https://devinthorpe.substack.com/p/assurely-offers-d-and-o-insurance#details.
In this podcast with David Carpentier, CEO of Assurely, a venture-backed insurance company, we discussed the company's new product called Tiger Mark. This is insurance for crowdfunding offerings. I'm happy to say that I purchased this coverage for this offering! As an investor, you are covered against losses from fraud.
