Description: The JOBS Act has opened the door to Crowdfunding. While Crowdfunding has received lots of media buzz, it remains a mystery to many within the financial and legal communities. In just a few months, the SEC is expected to establish rules for equity crowdfunding campaigns involving unaccredited investors for private companies. This engaging webcast program will shed light on emerging issues and regulatory developments that are likely to impact the SEC rule and what investors, consumers and legal professionals can, and should, expect. Discussion points will address:
• Better than friends and family
• Fraud v Failure
• Public like disclosure isn't necessary or helpful
• If we are so smart why is CF lawful in the UK and Australia
• Title III platforms will be able to demonstrate that investors have convenient memories             for risk 
• Liabilities of platforms; no class actions here
• Valuation is as much a problem with public companies as CF
• Is CF dd any match for conventional
