Build A Prospectus

Once the research has been gathered and a successful plan is articulated and shared, a prospectus should be assembled to highlight the potential investment, detail the financing needs and attract investors. 

The prospectus is a brief narrative of the community and includes the demographics of the Opportunity Zones with a compelling narrative detailing the potential growth and return to investors. The prospectus should clearly demonstrate two goals of Opportunity Zones:

  1. Favorable potential for investment returns
  2. Positive societal improvements from investments 

Here are examples of what other communities have published:
Erie, PA 
South Bend, IN
Oklahoma City, OK

Golden Shovel recommends a prospectus include, but is not limited to, the following sections: 

  • Community overview
