Crowdfunding is a new technique that allows you to raise money online for people, projects and products. This free seminar will describe what crowdfunding is, who uses it, and how one may be able to crowdfund small businesses.
According to recent news reports, "D.C. regulators are drawing up a proposed framework that would allow District startups to take advantage of equity crowdfunding from District investors, following a growing number of states which have passed similar measures in recent months. D.C.'s Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking (DISB) is preparing to publish a proposed rule that would give companies within the city “an alternative to existing methods of raising capital,” the agency said in a statement to the Washington Business Journal. That proposal, according to DISB, “is similar to those that are being developed in other states and the SEC’s proposed crowdfunding regulations.”
We will describe state-level equity based crowdfunding, discuss specific crowdfunding campaigns and announce a new initiative.
William Michael Cunningham, Henry Burger and Howard Williams will describe the current environment for equity crowdfunding in the District, providing specific examples of best practices.
