Have you heard about the JOBS Act? Have you heard about crowdfunding? The Jumpstart Our Business Start-ups (JOBS) Act was signed into law on April 5, 2012 and has helped reduce the regulatory burden for Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). With the advent of the JOBS Act, internet crowdfunding may revolutionize how financing is done for start-ups. This panel will take a look at the world of crowdfunding through the eyes of entrepreneurs, investors, and an attorney.
