Crowdfunding Summit to Debut this December in Silicon Beach
Crowd Invest Summit, a first-of-its-kind conference for the equity crowdfunding industry, is having its inaugural event December 7-8, 2016, at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel in Santa Monica, California. The summit will address a range of topics in equity crowdfunding by bringing together experts from across the industry, including venture capitalists, crowdfunding platforms and financial service providers.
Founded by Josef Holm, Darren Marble and Alon Goren, all early birds in the equity crowdfunding market, Crowd Invest Summit is a result of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulation under Title III of the JOBS Act, which, as of May, 2016, allows private companies to raise up to $1 million per year from both accredited and unaccredited investors.
“Until now, crowdfunding events have been predominantly focused on debating the potential rules and laws,” said Goren in a statement that went out today. “In contrast, this will be the first large-scale event in the crowdfunding sector focused on companies and investors raising real money and closing actual deals. We want all Americans to know that any of them can become venture capitalists now.”
