Event Details





In this remarkable moment in history, the U.S. regulatory landscape, its capital markets and the innovation that drives those markets are simultaneously on the threshold of extraordinary change. Unlike previous waves of innovation that have rejuvenated public stock exchanges, this one is aimed directly at galvanizing private marketplaces where today’s fastest growing companies now reside. We believe that we are currently witnessing the rise of the next great stock market, known as the Private Company Marketplace (PCM), which is being fueled by a revolution in mass communications and historic regulatory reform.


The passage of the “Jumpstart our Business Start-ups Act” (JOBS Act) amends improvident securities laws that have stymied economic growth by cultivating  a financial system that benefits a privileged few while discounting the vast majority. With new legislation democratizing the financial markets and allowing capital to flow back to entrepreneurs and retail investors, there has never been a more favorable climate for America’s women to launch new businesses and maximize investment returns.


Join senior management of the leading Crowdfunding & PCM platforms, tax, legal & regulatory experts as well as retirement specialists, prominent economists, angels, venture capitalists, incubators and visionaries at NowStreet’s Women Transforming our Financial Markets Symposium as we provide the knowledge, encouragement and relationships needed to succeed in a transforming marketplace.


We look forward to empowering more women in business and finance as well as honoring those ladies who continue to raise glass ceilings and inspire new generations.
