Wednesday marked the launch of the first-ever CrowdFunding World Summit. That crowdfunding has exploded into our collective consciousness to the extent that it can now command an international summit is definitely worth noting. This virtual conference looks to shine a light on the leading thinking and most current developments on this still-nascent, wildly exciting and outrageously misunderstood subject.
The 13-day event will bring together more than five-dozen of the world’s recognized crowdfunding experts to the common Internet portal that is the innovative host for this worldwide affair.
Each day, the summit will broadcast five interviews for free on-line consumption. Along with featured case studies of crowdfunding success, the CrowdFunding World Summit will present talks designed to educate both the general public and SMEs on this business-world game-changer.
It will present succinct summaries of the SEC’s pending rules and regulations, along with invited commentary by members of the US Congress on how this new form of fundraising is set to change the corporate and investment landscape.
Speakers will include Jason Best, co-founder and principal of Crowdfund Capital Advisors; John Perkins, ex-president of the North American Securities Administrators Association; and Daniel Gorfine, director of financial markets policy and legal counsel for economic thinktank the Milken Institute.
Jay Abraham, founder and CEO of Washington-based international strategic consulting firm The Abraham Group serves as the event’s keynote speaker.
CrowdFunding World Summit organizers are expecting some 50,000 people to tune in daily to hear from its collection of crowdfunding experts. The event closes its virtual doors on December 16.
