Apress is releasing the second edition of The JOBS Act: Crowdfunding Guide to Small Businesses and Startups, and we want to celebrate in a special way, so we're hosting a book launch party combined with a talk from an entrepreneur who is considering crowdfunding, Gwen Hurt of Shoe Crazy Wine (www.shoecrazywine.com).
What is that going to look like? The author will do a brief book review, share some insights, and then we will open the floor and transition into a crowdfunding meetup!
WHERE: This special event is happening at Cove Chinatown, 601 I Street, NW, Washington, DC. Cove is a "unique shared workspace where modern professionals can work productively—right in their local communities. More than anything, we’re focused on the genuine passion our members feel for their neighbors and neighborhoods. So we’re working to foster community (instead of forcing it) by striving to be good neighbors ourselves—to embrace and be embraced by the neighborhoods we serve, and to facilitate local connections between our members."
And our special guest Gwen Hurt? She founded Shoe Crazy Wine. "Shoe Crazy Wine offers delectable recent vintages for your enjoyment and pleasure. Kick off your shoes and enjoy with a movie or book. Sip by candle light with that special someone. Indulge your senses. Shoe Crazy Wine brings you an amazing and decadent collection. We believe a great wine is like a pair of shoes..... To be enjoyed over and over again!!! Enjoy Responsibly.."
We will have copies of the book for sale for $30. (If you want to pay in advance, just let me know.) You can also purchase a copy of the book here: https://www.amazon.com/JOBS-Act-Crowdfunding-Businesses-Startups/dp/1484224086/
