Details

Equity Crowdfunding isn't fully legal yet in the United States (the rules still need to be set by the SEC), but is being done in the UK, a number of European Union countries and in Australia. I have been in direct contact with operators of Crowdfunding sites abroad to find out what has taken place so far and will be summarizing it for you. The lessons learned there, will be compared to those from Kickstarter in the U.S.

While there have been some significant successes, it appears that a number of startups are not getting the funding exposure they need because of their own actions (and this could easily be corrected). We will discuss what both entrepreneurs and investors need to know in the United States and what still needs to still be discovered based on the brief history of equity Crowdfunding so far.

This mini-class is the second in our series on Crowdfunding. Each class is independent of the others. No previous knowledge of Crowdfunding is necessary (a brief overview will be given). Attendees will be given a copy of the notes that go with the class.

The class will held at the ShowBiz Cafe, 19 West 21st St, from 6:30 to 8:00PM on Monday, April 8th. You are guaranteed a seat if you pre-pay the $20 admission fee through PayPal at: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=28LAHESRMD2U4 .
