The Crowd Investing Innovation Forum Unveils Its Official Agenda

cfpa_eventNew York, NY, July 11, 2013 –(– The Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA), the leading trade organization for the crowdfunding industry, announces the agenda for its 2nd Annual Crowd Investing Innovation Forum, unveiling a list of financial experts and industry leaders who will be discussing how current Wall Street transformations are creating immediate opportunities for broker dealers, issuers and investors. The agenda for the conference, being held on August 8-9, 2013 in Orlando, can be viewed at:

“Whereas most crowdfunding conferences center discussions on predicting and preparing for the SEC’s implementation of the JOBS Act, we’ve decided to instead focus on showing how the entire financial ecosystem can employ presently legal crowdfinancing methodologies and begin capitalizing today,” said Luan Cox, Founder of Crowdnetic and Co-producer of this year’s event. “There is no reason why broker dealers, issuers and investors need to wait for Title III when they can already be contributing to economic growth through mechanisms such as Intrastate Crowdfunding, Reg D Crowdfunding and IPO Crowdfunding.”

CfPA’s 2nd Annual Crowd Investing Innovation Forum will be keynoted by David Weild IV, renowned capital markets expert and former Vice Chairman of NASDAQ, and will feature a powerful lineup of presentations, interactive panel discussions as well as an exhibit hall comprised of leading and emerging crowdfinancing portals. The discourse will spark change, challenge existing paradigms and debate conventional thinking as well as unleash new perspectives in the pursuit of real solutions. The event is sponsored by Ellenoff Grossman & Schole, CrowdClear, IRA Innovations, EarlyShares and CrowdCheck.
