CrowdFunding: Understanding the New Regulations

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) has been passed and was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 2012. The SEC recently announced a set of new regulations that effectively changes the game by allowing startups to now publicly advertise for investors. This also means additional hoops to jump through before entrepreneurs can start selling equity shares in their companies.

Come join the discussion at Packard Place to help understand the new CrowdFunding regulations, what they really mean, and how best to position your startup.

Panelists include:

Lori Collins– Startup Cafe (Host)

Dan Gotte - IMAF

Bob Donlon - Horack, Talley, Pharr & Lowndes, P.A.

Christie Kahil - Queen City Forward

Narcel Reedus - Story Street Studio

Kevin Garrison – Reardon and Garrison Accounting

    I agree with all the comments below.. really terrific panel... Thanks to everyone who had a part in putting this together. I would also love to see another CrowdFunding event that focused on best practices for raising money, and the future of CrowdFunding.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
