The Soho Loft founder and Chairman David Drake will give a groundbreaking presentation on crowd funding for equity to education leaders at an international conference in Moscow, Russia.
Mr Drake’s presentation, “Crowdfunding as an Alternative Financial Support of University Innovation”, at Green Enterprising and University Innovation for a Sustainable Future will be the first time anyone has presented on this topic in Eastern Europe.
The Green Enterprising and University Innovation for a Sustainable Future conference will be held at Lomonosov Moscow State University on October 13-14 . The conference has been organised by Stockholm University, Moscow State University and Bauman Technical University and supported by the Swedish Institute. In attendance will be participants from 27 eastern European universities.
Mr Drake will present to academia, researchers and university students on the intricacies of and unique developments in the JOBS Act which was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 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, David Drake has taken great strides in partnering with various prestigious international groups for sharing of best practice. In particular, he was part of the delegation to the US-Europe Transatlantic Economic Council, or TEC Forum, in Rome and Brussels last July 10-13 led by the US Ambassador Miriam Sapiro.
