The Soho Loft 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 legislators and enforcers implementing the JOBS Act are guiding us in the direction where Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) and start ups can get capital formation solutions.” says David Drake, CEO and Founder, The Soho Loft. He added “Douglas S. Ellenoff is one of the leading lawyers nationwide who attended discussions in DC a couple of weeks ago where we had Senator Brown, Senator Merkeley and Congressman Patrick McHenry (behind the crowd funding bill in the JOBS Act) participating with heads of SEC and FINRA to evolve these laws. I encourage you to join one of our upcoming events to learn how crowd funding works in favor for entrepreneurs.”
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.
