Meanwhile, Mr Drake will present on the intricacies and unique developments in the JOBS Act that was signed into law by President Obama Last April 15, 2012 and which has spurred the dynamic growth of the Crowd Funding phenomenon in the USA. He had the privilege to witness this happen all over the nation as he worked with other thought leaders in this space in particular as one of the founding members of CFIRA (CrowdFund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates) and CfPA (Crowdfund Professional Association). Globally, he has taken great strides in partnering with various prestigious international groups for sharing of best practices in particular his being part of the delegation to the US-Europe Transatlantic Economic Council or TEC Forum in Rome and Brussels last July 10-13 with European ministers and legislators as led by the US Ambassador Miriam Sapiro.
The goal of The Soho Loft is to promote and advance crowd fund investing for start-up entrepreneurs and SMEs so they will optimize all their opportunities to grow their business, innovate their products and services and thus create more jobs for others in their communities. All of which creates a new path to economic prosperity for the local and global communities.
The Event provides a global platform for promoting trade, commerce, investments and joint ventures, with the focus on increased trade with the US and sustainable development in Asia, Europe, The Middle East, and Russia.The exposure of this event to the global investment community in one place, during one time, in early September is expected to reach an audience of investors and dignitaries that will set the tone for global trade fulfillment and exposure for the big event in March.
With over 190 participating countries, the Introduction to the 7th Annual Global Trade Expo is set to turn the wheels in motion again of making the dream of “Global Peace through Global Trade” into a reality.
