Why should you attend? Watch this short video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLwxg1TQQVY to get a sense of the real impact that Equity Crowdfunding is going to make on the American economy.

Recently there has been an enormous amount of speculation and discussion about how crowdfund investing will affect the economy, and the panellists below will provide information from every perspective -- from implementation of the new law to researched projections on what this means for the economy.

Crowdfund Texas Press Conference Speakers:

  • Jason Best, Principal, Crowdfund Capital Advisors - Crowdfunding Regulations Update
  • Chris Camillo, Co-Chairman, Investment Subcommittee, CFIRA - Preparing Accredited Investors for Crowdfunding
  • Trey Bowles, Chairman, Startup Texas - Preparing Entrepreneurs for Crowdfunding
  • Doug Ellenoff, Partner, Ellenoff, Grossman & Schole, Legal Concerns for Crowdfunding
  • Heather Schwarz-Lopes, CEO, EarlyShares.com, Equity Crowdfunding Education

Equity Crowdfunding is legal and already making huge economic impacts in other countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. Rewards-based crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and RocketHub have demonstrated that the crowd is more than willing to invest hundreds of millions of dollars into creative projects they believe in and the products/services they want to buy.

Equity Crowdfunding, however, will serve as the real game changer because it will make billions of new investment capital available to businesses that have the potential to eventually pull the U.S. out of its current recession.

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
