Hosted by Horizon, the Crowdfunding Professional Association CfPA and Crowdie Advisors 2/23 @ 3:30pm EST
By Vanessa Malone
We are excited to announce an upcoming webinar Tuesday, February 23rd from 3:30 to 4:30pm EST hosted by Horizon, the Crowdfunding Professionals Association “CfPA” and Crowdie Advisors to discuss the state of liquidity in the rapidly growing crowdfunding market. Interested attendees may click here to RSVP.
Join crowdfunding pioneer and Horizon President, Mark Elenowitz; and JOBS Act lawyer and Crowdie Advisors Principal, Maureen L. Murat, Esq., as they discuss progress for the crowdfunding industry, the legislation that has created opportunities and roadblocks, and a revolutionary use case aimed at unlocking liquidity in the market.
Context for the discussion:
Liquidity has long been an obstacle for the equity crowdfunding industry. Billions globally have been invested in crowdfunded securities over the past few years with no clear path towards exit-liquidity. Investors could wait years for a company to be sold, earn enough revenue to buy its shares back, or go public before seeing any type of return.
Fortunately, equity crowdfunding continues to establish itself as an innovative way to raise meaningful capital from customers, supporters and fans. The SEC recently voted to increase capital raising limits for Reg A+ from $50 million to $75 million and Reg CF from $1.07 million to $5 million. While these updates were originally set to go into effect March 15, 2021, the Biden Administration’s Regulatory Freeze may inadvertently delay these new limits.
Despite the potential delay, increased awareness and favorable regulation are pushing innovative solutions to be deployed that address gaps in the growing market.
Hear insights from our speakers surrounding:
- The evolution of liquidity in crowdfunding
- The latest regulatory action; opportunities and roadblocks
- Considerations for crowdfunding issuers and investors
- A revolutionary fintech use case aimed at unlocking liquidity
