Event organizer Coastal Shows has announced their next crowdfunding summit. Crowdfund Global Expo (CFGE) Crowdfund Real Estate Summit and the co-located CFGE Crowdfund Entrepreneur Summit will take place in Austin, Texas this coming May.
“This summit will present a two-day comprehensive deep dive into new opportunities presented by crowdfunding, providing attendees with access to the preeminent thought leaders in the space, as well as unprecedented networking opportunities,” said Andrea Downs, CEO of Coastal Shows. “Off the heels of our successful Crowdfund Global Expo in San Diego, we’re excited to continue bringing these opportunities to communities throughout the country and help investors, entrepreneurs and those in the real estate and oil and gas markets explore crowdfunding.”
The two-day conference will provide high-level programming for the real estate and oil and gas industries on day 1. On day 2, attendees will have access to special sessions as part of the CFGE Crowdfund Entrepreneur Summit. The Summit will provide entrepreneurs and business owners with education from some of the country’s leading crowdfunding experts on opportunities in the space. The conference will also feature networking events and exclusive programming especially for women.
“We are excited to be welcoming back some of the participants of our January Expo, including Dr. Richard Swart of UC Berkeley, DJ Paul of GATE Global, Joy Schoffler of Leverage PR and David Manshoory of Asset Avenue,” said Downs.
General solicitation and crowdfunding are changing the way deals are done and how capital is raised in today’s markets. Not only is equity crowdfunding revolutionizing the entrepreneurial and tech scenes, it is also having a major impact on alternative assets, including real estate and oil and gas.
The two day event will take place on May 29 & 30, 2014.
