Overview of NowStreet's Evolving Capital Markets & Crowdfunding Symposium

In this remarkable moment in history, the U.S. regulatory environment, its capital markets and the innovation that drives those markets are simultaneously on the threshold of extraordinary change. We are currently witnessing the embryonic period of a cutting-edge stock market, known as the Private Company Marketplace (PCM), which is being fueled by unprecedented advancements in mass communications and regulatory reform.

 

The passage of the “Jumpstart our Business Start-ups Act” (JOBS Act) amends fruitless regulation that has long stymied economic growth, oppressed small investors and gave large companies an unfair advantage accessing capital in the U.S. This legislation finally helps democratize the financial markets by giving our smaller investors and issuers a greater chance to prosper. There has never been a more opportune time for investors and small businesses to capitalize on change.

 

Join Rep Patrick McHenry, the Congressman known for introducing “The Crowdfund Act” which was recently passed as part of the JOBS Act; David Weild, Former Vice Chairman of NASDAQ and authority on market structure; experts on the JOBS Act; pioneers of the Crowdfunding movement, senior management of leading Crowdfunding & PCM platforms as well as key angels, incubators and offshore investors for indispensible insight into how this new law coupled with innovations in mass media is transforming our financial markets and giving rise to an abundance of new wealth-creating opportunities in the private markets.
