Washington DC, Thursday July 19 – The Soho Loft Capital Creation Events and FundingPost will host a special educational session in Washington, DC for Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists on July 24, 2012, at the “DC VC and Angel Event” sponsored by Bingham McCutchen and SocialRadius. The Soho Loft with partners has organized 200+ sold-out venture events like these over the past 11 years. Event registration and information can be found online at: www.tsl724.eventbrite.com
We will present a special roundtable on Crowdfunding and the JOBS Act. During the panel discussion you will receive the latest developments in the legislation change, specifically what it means for entrepreneurs, angels & VCs, and how you may take advantage of opportunities created to help grow your business.
“Every week the legislators and enforcers implementing the JOBS Act are showing us the direction where Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) and start ups can get capital formation solutions. Whether it is Reg A+, onramp IPO for foreign firms, start ups for crowd funding with equity or Reg D 506 exemption to raise money, these are but a few developments you must know about as they become practical laws this year.” says David Drake, CEO and Founder, The Soho Loft. “I am involved in discussions with the SEC and FINRA to evolve these into efficient and low cost funding alternatives. All these discussions occur in DC and last week we actually met Senator Brown, Senator Merkeley and Congressman Patrick McHenry behind the crowd funding bill in the JOBS Act and the heads of SEC and FINRA to evolve the direction of these laws. I encourage you to join one of our upcoming events to learn cutting edge knowledge on what is happening in leadership of capital formation in the U.S. today.”
Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors are purchasing tickets and preparing to also learn about: trends in Early-Stage Investing; factors to consider when investing; deal terms & valuations, practical financial and management advice for entrepreneurs; and best and worst ways to attract Investors.
