LOS ANGELES (June 29, 2016) – The first ever Crowd Invest Summit will debut December 7-8, 2016 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel in Santa Monica, California. The summit will feature a robust agenda spanning a variety of equity crowdfunding themes including investment analysis, marketing strategies, trends and insights from industry experts. Early bird discounted tickets are available for $99 for a limited time via the summit’s website.

Founded by three equity crowdfunding industry pioneers (Josef Holm, Darren Marble and Alon Goren), the Crowd Invest Summit was developed with the vision that every American – whether accredited or not – can now be a venture capitalist.

Notably, the summit will bring together every facet of the equity crowdfunding industry including angel investors, venture capital investors, retail investors, real estate investors, startups / entrepreneurs, issuers, funding portals, broker-dealers, marketing and PR firms, crowdfunding service providers, Fintech service providers and members of the media.

“As the first event of its kind in the United States, the Crowd Invest Summit connects retail investors and top crowdfunded investment opportunities,” said Josef Holm, co-founder of Crowd Invest Summit, and founder and CEO of crowdfunding marketing and PR software firm Krowdster. “Given the recent shifts in the equity crowdfunding industry, we created this event to be inclusive of all types of investors. Our first summit will take place in Silicon Beach and we’re already exploring a series of domestic and international events to follow.”

“The majority of crowdfunding conferences are way too technical,” said Darren Marble, co-founder of the Crowd Invest Summit and CEO of crowdfunding agency CrowdfundX. “They are filled with attorneys, accountants and platforms – who are all important resources – but the industry is desperate for a conference that caters to the everyday Americans. They are the retail investors who will ultimately fuel the growth of the industry. I am excited to be partnering with Josef and Alon on this initiative. I couldn’t think of two more experienced and connected crowdfunding experts to make this vision a reality.”

“I am honored to be working with crowdfunding industry colleagues Darren and Josef on what will be the largest crowd investing event to date,” said Alon Goren, co-founder of the Crowd Invest Summit, and founder and CEO of enterprise crowdfunding software company InvestedIn.com and monthly Ventura / Santa Barbara area event 805 Startups. “For years, all three of us have been pioneers an industry with promise and excitement for a world where anyone could invest in any company, regardless of economic or social status. We’ve now built that world, and we expect to unite more companies and investors than ever before.”

Goren added, “Until now, crowdfunding events have been predominantly focused on debating the potential rules and laws that are now finally in place and available. In contrast, this will be the first large-scale event in the crowdfunding sector focused on companies and investors raising real money and closing actual deals. We want all Americans to know that any of them can become venture capitalists now.”

Equity Crowdfunding For All: Brief Background on Key Rulings 

In an unprecedented development in March of 2015, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled on Title IV of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (also known as the JOBS Act), paving the way for private companies to raise up to $50M from both accredited and unaccredited investors. This ruling is known as “Reg A+” and is expected by many to be pivotal in the future of popular investments in America.

Effective in May of 2016, regulation Crowdfunding under Title III of the JOBS Act allows private companies to raise up to $1 million annually from both accredited and unaccredited investors.

Given the groundswell of interest in both Reg A+ and Title III opportunities, the Crowd Invest Summit agenda will explore both categories.
