The ChamberWise Education Consortium, Accredited Investor Markets, and Financial Poise are pleased to announce the release of their jointly-produced webinar, “What Entrepreneurs and other Business Owners Must Understand About Equity Crowdfunding.”
Available on demand today, this webinar is designed to educate business owners, executives, and others who are not crowdfunding experts about the ins and outs of issuing an equity crowdfunding security. The expert panel discusses basic concepts that you should be familiar before deciding whether equity crowdfunding is the right capital raising move for your business.
“The amount of money a person has doesn’t necessarily dictate their ability to understand equity crowdfunding,” according to CrowdCheck’s Andrew Stephenson. “However, it is often used as a litmus test to determine if someone is able to delve knowledgably into equity crowdfunding opportunities. The responsibility to sort this out will be up to the issuer.”
“Once allowed, equity crowdfunding may or may not be ideal for all types of companies,” cautions Steven Dresner. “It will be very significant and costly, not to mention stringent state securities and anti-fraud laws which can be burdensome, “company-killing” events. While there can be very significant and positive trade-offs, making it the answer for capital raising for some, businesses should proceed carefully and with great due diligence before moving forward into an equity crowdfunding offering.”
