“David Drake has run exceptional events covering subjects – especially CrowdFunding – which built momentum behind its inclusion in the JOBS Act. His events help create the community of interest to share ideas and inform legislators.  I will continue to support The Soho Loft events here and overseas.”

David Weild
former Vice Chairman of Nasdaq



“We have worked with The Soho Loft continuously for 7 years and have seen the firm evolve and develop a leading capital raising business. The Soho Loft are now experts on the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, including the Onramp IPO and crowd funding. We followed The Soho Loft as part of the delegation to the TransAtlantic Economic Council with the US Commerce department and the EU Commission in Rome in July 2012. We recommend The Soho Loft as a reliable expert in the Private Company Marketplace.”

“He is a pleasure to work with and his relationships worldwide are impressive and incredibly valuable. You should certainly leverage his extensive and global relations as well as his expertise on the JOBS Act both for domestic and foreign private and public companies. He is certainly one of crowd funding top 10 most influential experts today.”

“David Drake and The Soho Loft provided MediaShares with extremely valuable exposure to the financial community. We have been able to present and explain our highly innovative “Crowdfunded IPO” at their sold-out conferences in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and this exposure helped bring us the attention we were seeking from major players in investment banking.”

On David Drake – “There isn’t a harder working, better connected person in the crowdfunding industry. David is an excellent marketer and business builder, and is passionate about the relationships he creates.”

Scott Purcell
Founder, Arctic Island Crowdfunding Platform



“I was impressed by the caliber of VC’s present at the event and the funds presented. I received good feedback and many investors were happy to take the time to think through market evaluation, business strategy and provide valuable insight not available from peers or customers.”

“The point of an investor relationship should be the relationship, not the funds. Also in this regard the events proved valuable, being able to network with venerable key players who will provide a longer-term value to my company and initiative. Business is all about networking and relationships, and TSL does not disappoint.”

“David’s work with his The Soho loft has been, and continues to be, an invaluable resource for the crowdfunding community. The Soho Loft events catalyzed the thought leaders and entrepreneurs, and was integral in the process of getting Congress to pass the JOBS Act that President Obama signed into law April 5, 2012. These changes are fundamental to US job creation and pivotal to Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises’ access to capital.”
