Are you looking to get financing for your startup or early-stage company? Or, would you like to put money behind an idea you see potential in? What if it was the next Facebook you could launch or invest in? You may not know it, but you can now! President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law on April 5, 2012, green-lighting Equity Based Crowdfunding - the revolutionary new way for companies to raise capital and everyday Americans to invest and help create American jobs.
Realizing there is lack of knowledge on the subject, EarlyShares.com has launched a 24 Cities in 24 Weeks Nationwide Educational Roadshow and will be coming to Seattle, WA on September 17, 2012. Join us at the Surf Incubator to learn about Equity Based Crowdfunding for free and have all your questions answered by Crowdfunding pioneer and EarlyShares.com founder Maurice Lopes. Some of the topics covered:
> What does Crowdfunding mean for investors?
> How to find companies?
> Understanding Due Diligence
> Where is the SEC rulemaking process today?
> How to take advantage of possible TAX benefits of investments?
> What does Crowdfunding mean for entrepreneurs?
> What are the funding limitations in the JOBS Act?
> How to prepare your company for Crowdfunding?
> What are the costs associated with the process?
The event will be of interest to startup founders, small business owners, business incubators and accelerators, venture capitalists, angel investors, and, of course, everyday Americans looking for a new way to invest in small businesses they choose. Attendees will enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres and beverages and have the opportunity to network in an informal setting.
This is an educational event only, no securities or investments will be solicited, no commitments required.
