Washington Business Journal takes a look at CrowdCheck's place in the securities and crowdfunding industry.
Watch our joint webinar with Earlyshares to help you better understand the recently released proposed rules for securities crowdfunding.
Well, sort of there, we watched the meeting on the internet, poured over the text of the rules, wrote up a little memo, and dusted off the podcasting equipment to talk about what the SEC did and what it might mean for you and for crowdfunding.
Last month we were fortunate enough to get a bunch of really smart people together to talk about how investment crowdfunding should be regulated...without it being overregulated. Many of you were there, but if you couldn't make it, or just want to relive the memories we have a treat: the conference videos. Enjoy!
The CrowdFundCast went to South by Southwest interactive festival to spread the joy…err…calm feeling of properly done due diligence. It was a great but time devouring experience, which we talk about here.
After a long holiday break the CrowdFundCast is Back! This time we get to interview Mr. Sang Lee of Return On Change about crowdfunding and high impact investment. The discussion was fascinating, the skype…a little wonky, but Sang graciously put up with the technical hurdles to talk about why he thinks crowdfunding will help both companies and investors be the change they want to see in the world.
University of Virginia Darden School e-conference 2012 crowdfunding panel
In this episode we talk about the SEC Small Business Forum, whether portals will be able to charge transaction based fees, and finally getting to park in the UVA Darden school parking deck (a dream of mine).
If you would like to read more about just what a Broker-Dealer is there is an excellent (though long) resource here (pdf) from Robert Colby and Lanny Schwartz.
As a side note: while getting a regular production schedule is top of my list of new year’s resolutions, but things will be spotty until then.
In the second part of this week’s episode we move beyond what our past adventures to a discussion on the present and future of crowdfunding. Here we speculate wildly on what is taking the SEC so long (and why that may not be a bad thing in the long run), what might happen once the regulations are put forward, and why Congress might just write the thing themselves. We also discuss the potential problems with how the SEC and FINRA may come down on the regulations.
