Ever since the Jobs Act was announced in 2010, equity crowdfunding has gained interest from all industries – so much in fact that “crowdfunding” searches on Google recently outnumbered that of “venture capital”. We’ve seen the success of well-known campaigns such as the Pebble Watch and the economic benefits in terms of GDP; however, where is this exciting movement/industry/trend heading? Join NCFA Canada and special guests as we discuss growing trends and the future outlook for global crowdfunding in 2014, including discussion topics as:
- Market Updates: How is crowdfunding disrupting traditional sources of funding in industries including venture capital, social enterprise and government?
- How have technological trends such as social media, mobile, and cloud computing impacted the growth of crowdfunding? (i.e. FundRazr’s cFaaST Technology)
- The evolution of debt and equity crowdfunding in the US, including title II and title III models
- Emerging equity crowdfunding regulations in Canada and future outlook
Who Should Attend?
This is an educational webinar for those interested in staying current with financial trends, market updates/innovations and equity crowdfunding regulations targeting portals, SMEs, startups, angel investors, VCs, accountants, lawyers and other industry providers.
