San Francisco – Entitled “2016 the year of equity crowdfunding”, the conference will allow for participants to discuss the current state of the Crowdfunding industry, network and connect new partnerships and will explore new methods of finance, from peer-to-peer lending, crowdfunded small business and real estate finance, as well as review existing and developing legal considerations and international initiatives. “In bringing together industry thought-leaders, this is destined to offer unique and valuable insights to this growing industry” commented Sydney Armani, Founder of CrowdFundBeat. Armani went on to say “Upon reviewing the speaker and attendee list, I feel we have met our goal.”
The conference program keynote speeches will be delivered by Douglas Ellenoff partner EGS and Dr. Richard Swart chief strategy officer at NextGen Crowdfunding. The Panels will feature experts from across the Crowdfunding industry such as Georgia Quinn CEO at iDisclose.com, who will introduce a service to generate Form C through a series of adaptive questions similar to Turbo Tax, taking the guess work out of legal compliance and saving time and money.
