2016 may be considered the Year of an Equity Gold Rush, with new methodologies being introduced, such a Title III of the JOBS Act, and the maturation of certain models like P2P lending.  This conference will be centered on in-depth discussions on: the growing allocation into alternative investments by broader types of investors; the evolution of crowdfunding practices and their respective successes and failures; the expansion of real estate investing and financing through online platforms: and an outlook on the viability and exit strategies of many of the platforms who were hoping to piggyback Lending Club’s  and OnDeck Capital’s access of the public equities market.

We will also explore, in fact, debate, the promises and expectations of the JOBS Act, and whether this legislation has yielded higher levels of capital formation and employment for small to medium sized businesses.  As we are in an election year, might the JOBS Act’s progress, or lack thereof, impact the political cycle?

And there is much more.
