The University of Illinois and embedded incubator EnterpriseWorks are hosting a crowdfunding workshop detailing upcoming regulatory changes brought on by the JOBS Act. Entrepreneur in Residence Alan Singleton will be speaking at the event.
Owned and operated by the University of Illinois to help launch successful startup companies, EnterpriseWorks is at the heart of the Research Park’s community building efforts. Its atrium is a hub of activity with weekly events open to all tenants such as training workshops and lectures by seasoned entrepreneurs. Most of the entrepreneur support services and resources that the park offers are facilitated by or at EnterpriseWorks, including the popular Entrepreneur-in-Residence program cited by Inc.com.
The event takes place on January 28, 2014 in the atrium at EnterpriseWorks. Directions are available here.
The event aims to provide a measured perspective on changes brought on by the JOBS Act, including non-accredited equity crowdfunding and the lifting of the ban on general solicitation for certain private placement offerings.
