To the Crowd! Leveraging Technology for Citizen Engagement
Monday, May 20, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
How did an entrepreneur crowdfund 470K to create the world's lightest electric vehicle? How do you leverage peer-to-peer lending to support underserved businesses? And what are the legal implications for these new financing models?
Learn the answers to these questions & more through a panel discussion on the rise of new technology -- specifically crowdfunding, crowdlending, and crowdinvesting -- that's changing the ways citizens engage with their communities. From launching new businesses to investing in local real estate, we'll explore the rise of crowdfunding with entrepreneurs, funding platforms, and a legal expert. Panelists include:
- Dan Miller, Co-Founder of Fundrise
- Sanjay Dastoor, Co-Founder of Boosted Boards
- Mavis Yee, Partner at Nixon Peabody
- Jonny Price, Kiva Zip Program Director
Immediately following the panel discussion, we will be hosting a networking reception with wine and appetizers to allow guests to ask any further questions to the panelists.
