Demystifying the JOBS Act: How Startups Can Raise Capital with Crowdfunding – New York City

March 13, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST

JOBS Act 2012 jumpstart our businessThe JOBS Act was signed into law in 2012, but much of the legislation is still in the regulatory process awaiting final rules from the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Come join Crowdfund Insider along with two of the leading legal experts on the JOBS Act and have all of your questions answered regarding crowdfunding and how you may be able to raise funds for your company.  Securities law can be more than a bit drab, but we promise to make this event interesting, educational and fun.  There will be a one hour presentation, tons of Q&A on crowdfunding, plus plenty of beer, wine and great people.  This event is being co-sponsored by the team at Return On Change.

We will be presenting on Equity Crowdfunding:

Title II: The new options surrounding 506(c) private placements and advertising.

Title III Retail Crowdfunding:  What we expect on final rules from the SEC.

TItle IV:  Reg A+ and how this new exemption may end up creating a unique opportunity for the small IPO market.

Our two presenters will be Sam Guzik and Georgia Quinnwho recently visited the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington DC and can share their unique insight on the status of final rules.
