Colorado Crowdfunding - Investment-Based Crowdfunding Meetup

For those of you who missed the December 4th meeting due to the hellacious snow storm, we’ll be presenting a shortened version of the most relevant materials presented at the December 4th meeting.

This will include the remarks of Keith F. Higgins, the new Director of the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance, the most powerful arm of the SEC when it comes to the day-to-day compliance obligations of reporting individuals and companies, regarding the new Accredited Investor Crowdfunding (which became legal on September 23rd of last year), as well as the comments of some of the more important panelists at the SEC’s November 21st Government-Business Forum held at their offices in Washington, D.C. Unlike a lot of the chatter that you’ll come across from self-professed “experts”, instead you’ll hear straight from the mouth of the most important “horses” in this quickly-evolving area: the regulators and enforcers themselves.

In addition, we’ll present some snippets from the recent New York State Bar Association panel discussion concerning the recently-released Federal proposed rules for Non-Accredited Investor Crowdfunding (Title III of the JOBS Act) and the specific view that the SEC itself (represented by one of their staff people who appears on the panel) is taking of the proposed new rules and Title III in general.

Because of the importance to crowdfunders of understanding the views that you’ll hear the regulators and enforcers express during these snippets, this is a meeting that you, or anyone else who’s interested in investment-based crowdfunding, simply cannot afford to miss.

Looking forward to seeing all you startup entrepreneurs and business owners at this next meeting, January 22nd at Brooklyn’s Restaurant near Sports Authority Field (i.e., Bronco’s Stadium). As always, the address is 2644 W. Colfax Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80204.
