Brian Schmitt Bio

Brian has worked for a large financial firm for the past seven years where he has both analyzed and marketed financial products to customers. This has been a great experience, yet he has always dreamed of venturing out to start a company focused on helping others. Thus, Belay Capital was born from a confluence of strengths gained from working in finance and marketing and his passion for working with the community.

Overview of the Company

We are a localized crowdfunding platform that gives small business owners a way to raise capital while also forging strong relationships with the community.

How it works

Belay Capital gives small businesses an opportunity to raise capital. Instead of relying the traditional sources of capital to receive their line of credit, businesses can instead seek out “the crowd” to help fund business be funded.

The crowd--YOUR community members--have a tangible way to support businesses while also receiving special rewards, VIP treatment, and--down the road--equity within the companies they support. Thus passions are shared, relationships are strengthened, and the sense of community is increased.

    Excellent. I wanted to meet some web developers and did. I hope to work with some, or one of them next week. I got to discuss my projects with several more,, The Marble and my "Bones Alive" project on I met a pirate! Captain Jack! I am hoping that TinkerMill in Longmont (I am a member.) and the pirates in Boulder can get together and build a pirate ship for this years "Talk Like A Pirate Day" in September.

    For speakers without presentations, standing in the middle of the room works well for small venues.. It only takes a few moments to turn the chairs towards the speaker.

      This is by far our biggest event, next time we will set up to use the microphone and add more chairs.

      Yes. very hard to hear if you were in the back. The fans were blowing as well so that made it much harder.

    Quick thought, and call me Type A; but here we go: brief the entire room that if they can't hear whoever is speaking to simply raise their hand. Ideally this would be done by someone with a microphone, or someone with enough experience projecting their voice that everyone is sure to hear it. This will alert whoever's speaking (after this point) that they aren't being heard. They can then try to rectify the situation by speaking louder. The problem is, many people THINK they're speaking louder when they really aren't. Or they start to speak louder, but then settle back to what's comfortable for them without realizing it. A simply hand raise, with context, could help alleviate those situations.

    Format is excellent. Really enjoy the introductions throughout the room so you can determine with whom you want to network. Makes it a much more efficient process.
