Crowdfunding & Other Financing Techniques for Startups
Mark Hiraide will be speaking on "Crowdfunding & Other Financing Techniques for Startups," at Innovate Pasadena on February 19, 2016.
Mark will provide a practical overview of the SEC’s new Equity Crowdfunding rules, which take effect on May 16, 2016, and answer questions about the new rules. May 16, 2016, will go down in securities law history as the day entrepreneurs first gained unprecedented access to capital to finance their business ventures and startups. On that day, for the first time since Congress began regulating investments under the Securities Act of 1933, companies will be able to raise capital from the public without registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). This expansion of the funding universe for cash-starved businesses is the heart and soul of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (“JOBS”) Act of 2012, designed to spur job creation through development of new businesses made possible by fundamental changes in the regulation of securities offerings.
