    About the Event

    The Equity Crowdfunding Revolution

    If you want to start a business and will need capital, this is a can’t miss event.  If you want to access and invest in the next potential “unicorn,” this is a can’t miss event.

    Join The Elite OC, dbbmckennon, StartEngine, CrowdfundX, and Youngry for a discussion on equity crowdfunding, and hear from four of the nation’s leading experts on strategies for success and potential investment opportunities in equity crowdfunding for a new generation that is tired of a system that works against them rather than for them.

    Equity crowdfunding became legal in the US in 2015 with Reg A+, a mini-IPO process that allows emerging growth companies to raise up to $50M.  In May 2016 Regulation Crowdfunding became legal which allows startup companies to raise up to $1M with reduced regulation.   These new funding and investing mechanisms are the most significant change in the way a new generation will fund businesses and invest and changed 80 years of existing laws. 

    This event is one of few nationwide that will bring these top experts together.  Learn from the team that led the effort to raise money for Elio Motors, THE MOST successful equity crowdfunding raise in history.
