CrowdfundNC Acquires The FĒNX


Raleigh, North Carolina

CrowdfundNC has acquired The FĒNX, an online community of entrepreneurs founded by Mac Lackey to empower founders to rise to their full potential.  As part of this, Mac joins CrowdfundNC as an investor and strategic advisor to help drive the expansion of The FĒNX. The FĒNX stimulates entrepreneurial growth on a global scale through educational events, specialized training courses, and an open-forum to ask questions and discuss strategies for business growth. 

Will McGuire, CEO of CrowdfundNC said, “We’re honored to join forces with Mac and other entrepreneurs in The FĒNX.  Learning from and connecting with fellow founders who didn’t sacrifice critical time with their family or health while growing and exiting their businesses is invaluable.  CrowdfundNC is cultivating a startup ecosystem that scales, and it was a no-brainer for our team to partner with Mac who is quintessentially aligned with our company’s vision & mission.” 

Mac Lackey added, “As I look back over my 25 years as an entrepreneur, an absolute fact is that a lot of my success was because I surrounded myself with people who could help me get to where I was trying to go in life. Never before, to my knowledge, has a community of entrepreneurs and founders combined with a group of experts as it relates to funding and exiting – all of those things are coming together as a community you can be a part of.”

Mac’s investment and role, along with merging the community he built, demonstrates the long term commitment to the combined vision of expanding opportunities for founders highly focused on scaling their businesses. The FĒNX will allow for a comprehensive complement of resources across key elements of growing a business such as a team, product/market fit, access to capital, and partners.
