Second Anniversary of JOBS Act Signing Brings Industry Leaders to Silicon Valley Crowdfund Conference

CrowdFuneBeat News Wire, With Kickstarter-backed companies like Oculus VR selling for billions, conference attendees gather for education on next generation equity crowdfunding.

Investors and companies are gathering at the Silicon Valley (SV) Crowdfund Conference to learn how their crowdfunding dollars can get them more than just a t-shirt, especially in the wake of Facebook’s recent acquisition of crowdfunded company Oculus VR for $2 billion. The SV Crowdfund Conference, held on April 3 and 4, will provide in-depth education around the upcoming second anniversary of the JOBS Act, signed by President Obama in 2012. Members of the press are invited to receive complimentary press passes to attend panels, meet sources and learn more about the hot new trend of equity crowdfunding.

Leading speakers from the crowdfunding industry include experts such as: Chris Tyrrell, CEO of OfferBoard and chairman of CFIRA, the leading trade association for the crowdfunding industry; David Manshoory of real estate crowdfunding platform AssetAvenue; Andrea Downs of Coastal Shows; and Joy Schoffler, founder of Leverage PR and CrowdBuilder. Topics will range from marketing and legal advice to regulatory updates and using crowdfunding to syndicate real estate offerings.

“Had equity crowdfunding been in effect, backers of Oculus would be getting a lot more than just t-shirts right now,” says Joy Schoffler, CfIRA and CF50 board member and founder of CrowdBuilder, an innovative new platform that helps campaigners and startups reach their crowds. “Conferences like SV Crowdfund are critical to help educate investors and companies about crowdfunding. I am already excited to see what the third anniversary will look like; hopefully the backers of the next big crowdfunded offering will have a chance to take part in the success.”

The crowdfunding industry has been growing at an amazing clip, with venture capitalists pouring nearly $80 million into the industry during this quarter alone, including $40 million into Indiegogo, $23 million into Crowdtilt and $20 million into Teespring.

The SV Crowdfund Conference will provide an expert assessment of crowdfunding in the U.S., with a focus on entrepreneurs’ experiences and sharing strategies to remove barriers that prevent small businesses from growing and hiring. The event will feature people who implement crowdfunding as a part of their current fundraising and marketing strategies and those who work with the SEC to implement equity crowdfunding in the United States.

“I am very excited about doing this Silicon Valley event. Since last year, the interest in the event has been growing. We have many leaders from Silicon Valley who signed up to attend,” says Sydney Armani, conference organizer, Silicon Valley Crowdfund Ventures CEO and CrowdFund Beat publisher.
