Why you should attend?The passage of the JOBS Act has created new opportunities in the private investments industry. This legislation has resulted in high expectations and many concerns.
Over last couple months we saw two major developments: in September, an 80 year long ban on general solicitation was removed. Now small businesses, investment funds, real estate developers can openly promote their projects to investors. Then in October the SEC voted on the rules for crowdfunding to allow non-accredited investors to participate.
Outside of the legal battles we witness many new developments, including the emergence of new crowd-funding portals, interesting coalitions and entrance into the industry of established financial institutions and global corporations.
The Forum attendees will have an opportunity to learn from the industry experts about the happenings and future trends as well as how they can benefit from the changes in the securities law. The discussion topics include: equity crowdfunding, peer-to-peer and peer-to-business lending, "high risk" electronic payment processing, real estate investing, legal regulations and tax strategies, business financing options, how professional investors (hedge funds, VCs, angel groups, financial advisors) will benefit from employing new securities laws, investor relations and marketing in post-JOBS Act era.
