SterlingFunder is the nation’s first equity/debt crowdfunding portal for both accredited and non-accredited investors. CEO and co-founder David Lilenfeld to Speak at Kingonomics Conference.
Kingonomics set to take place next week in Washington DC will bring together big names in innovation, entrepreneurship and investment. Crowdfunding site SterlingFunder was founded on the vision that we can shift investment power from Wall Street to Main Street.
Equity investing doesn’t have to mean being thrown in a shark tank, according to David Lilenfeld, CEO and Co-founder of SterlingFunder. Lilenfeld will join Shark Tank star and successful entrepreneur Mark Cuban on a panel discussing investing in emerging markets during theKingonomics Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Investment Conference.
The Kingonomics Conference seeks to financially embolden all communities through entrepreneurship, as inspired by the philosophies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This idea mirrors SterlingFunder’s commitment to empowering a larger percentage of the population to participate in equity and debt crowdfunding.
“SterlingFunder was founded on the vision that we can shift investment power from Wall Street to Main Street,” said Lilenfeld. “That’s why we are particularly excited to be part of this event.”
Lilenfeld and Cuban are expected to speak on the “Invest Up” panel, which focuses on investing in emerging markets both in the United States and globally. Other panelists include Dr. Ayman El Tarabishy, research professor at George Washington University and executive director at the International Council of Small Businesses, and Henry Turner, strategic growth advisor at the Maryland Small Business and Technology Development Center.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to speak on a panel with such influential names in the small business and entrepreneurship sector,” Lilenfeld said.
