Where Social Networking Meets The Capital Markets
With the passage of the JOBS Act, equity based crowdfunding is set to revolutionize how venture-stage companies raise capital. By combining social media and equity-based financing, crowdfunding is poised to usher in a new asset class that will change how early stage financing transactions are consummated.
While most believe that crowdfunding will become a prevalent way to gain access to equity-based capital, even today, crowdfunding has become big business. Peer-based lending websites like Kiva, reward-based websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and accredited investor-based websites are proliferating. By our count, there are nearly 400 sites worldwide engaged in some form of crowd-based funding.
The Crowdfunding Conference was a forum for discussion of this new asset class, but also a forum to discuss what's happening in crowdfunding today, under the new framework of the JOBS Act and social networking protocols.
The Crowdfunding Conference brought together experts from the financial world, social media platforms and the legislature to discuss all of the key issues relating to small company capital formation.
