    Could not attend. Is there good summary available? Are there any plans to continue a meetup to discuss, as entrepreneurs that want to explore crowdfunding options on an ongoing basis?

    Great Meetup! I connected with several people who really know their stuff. Looking forward to the SEC getting off their butts and finalizing this.
