This month, the New York Legal Hackers will meet to discuss crowdfunding. In 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act to facilitate startup fundraising through so-called crowdfunding platforms, as well as other modifications to existing securities regulations. At this meetup, we will provide a quick primer on these important changes to the securities laws and then move on to a holistic discussion on the vices and virtues of equity vs. non-equity crowdfunding.
