The JOBS Act will drastically change how many small businesses finance themselves after December 31, 2012. The JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) mandates that the SEC must adopt its rules, including modifications to the 1933 and 1934 Securities Acts to allow for "Equity Crowdfunding", prior to December 31, 2012. Equity Crowdfunding allows entrepreneurs to raise capital through online portals, called Crowdfunding Intermediaries, for business purposes. We want to start a discussion and a network of individuals committed to the success of Crowdfunding. We will host events that highlight successfully crowdfunded startups, Crowdfunding Intermediaries, Crowdfunders (investors), and administrative services that entrepreneurs, intermediaries, and investors will find helpful. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
