Crowdfunding is Here, Now What? An Open Discussion

In May, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted the final rules for Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act allowing non-accredited investors to make equity investment in startups through a registered online portal. With this action, they joined a majority of the states that also have passed crowdfunding legislation. During this participant-driven session, panelists will lead a discussion on the current status of crowdfunding and its potential future as well as its impact on the TBED field. Crowdfunding is here. Join with your peers from across the country to discuss how your organization can prepare, your client companies can benefit, and your region can prosper from it.
