Women Transforming our Financial Markets Symposium
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM (EST)
New York, NY
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MORE FAVORABLE CLIMATE FOR WOMEN TO LAUNCH NEW BUSINESSES & MAXIMIZE INVESTMENT RETURNS
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.
Attendees will include primarily female entrepreneurs, crowdfunding professionals & enthusiasts, angels, accredited investors; investment bankers; wealth managers; VCs; family offices; incubators; private equity firms; pre-IPO fund managers; hedge funds; brokers; secondary stock specialists; equity analysts; select members of the media as well as tax, legal and regulatory experts.

Since 2011, Dara Albright has been helping set the direction of the crowdfinance industry through leading-edge industry articles and acclaimed conferences that introduce crowd-driven asset classes such as crowdfunding and p2p lending to the financial community. She produced the very first crowdfunding conference in January 2012 which was headlined by key JOBS Act architects: Congressman Patrick McHenry and Dave Weild. This event birthed the crowdfinance movement and led to the founding of the industry’s trade and leadership organizations. In 2013, she co-founded LendIt which went on to become the largest and most recognized global p2p & online lending conference organization. Some of the most prominent figures in the financial industry as well as the legislature continue to participate in Dara Albright events.
