“CrowdFund Beat’s mission is to be THE resource for news and information in the Crowdfunding industry. As such we wanted to host an event that would bring together the industry’s leaders. Upon reviewing the speaker and attendee list, I feel we have met our goal,” says conference organizer and Founder of CrowdFund Beat, Sydney Armani.
The conference will allow for participants to discuss the current state of the Crowdfunding industry, network and connect new partnerships. Participants will be able to hear panelists representing Crowdfunding platforms across the United States, Europe, and Latin America, along with experts from a variety of disciplines within the Crowdfunding industry as well as entrepreneurs who have launched successful Crowdfunding campaigns.
“There is a good deal of confusion about Crowdfunding and the changes the JOBS Act will make to securities laws in general,” says Joy Schoffler, CfPA Executive Committee board member and Principal of Leverage PR, a Public Relations firm specializing in serving financial services companies. “How to market and get the word out about your campaign is an area that may lead into gray areas if they are not careful. Conferences like SV Crowdfund are critical for not only entrepreneurs but also members of the investment community interested in learning more about changes to the securities laws.”
