Equity Crowdfunding Unveiled
(Online On-Demand Presentation)

This recorded presentation takes an in-depth look at the SEC’s new Regulation Crowdfunding rules from Title III of the JOBS Act, which became effective in May 2016. For the first time in U.S. history, it is now possible for certain types of businesses to raise capital and sell securities via crowdfunding websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo. A number of specialized crowdfunding websites, known as funding portals, have been set up to handle what is expected to be a gold rush of crowdfunded offerings once the regulations become effective.

In this entertaining, fast-paced presentation, Clifford Ennico, a leading business law practitioner and author of several books for start-up companies and investors will tackle the most important questions your clients will ask about crowdfunding and offer practical guidance for the most common situations you will encounter in this area.
