Do you work for a startup? Are you considering starting a round of fundraising to take your business to the next level? Do you know your way around the tangle of SEC regulations you are subject to?

There are some big new developments in the regulations surrounding fundraising for early stage companies and the legalities can be very confusing. Come to CrowdGoers for our first MeetUp to learn from two attorneys with decades of experiences with startups, fundraising, and the newest financial regulations.

Attorneys Richard Levin and Dominic Lloyd of Baker Hostetler will explain the history of the JOBS Act, upcoming changes to "general solicitation" in SEC regulations, and how these changes are likely to impact early-stage fundraising. They will help to highlight some new risks that every startup should be aware of.

If you are an entrepreneur, are currently in the early stage of your business, or are already starting to fundraise - this information is very important to you. The new rules around general solicitation are unclear and include potentially harsh penalties for violation. Join CrowdGoers and be in the know.

Come get to know other entrepreneurs and get your questions answered. Refreshments will be served. Join our MeetUp and RSVP - we look forward to seeing you!
