Speaking Engagement

With the Title III federal public crowdfunding provisions of the JOBS Act finally becoming fully effective in May 2016 and a new administration, what does the future hold for marketplace lending and crowdfunding? Will it be a boom or bust? Will Regulation A+ start to pick up speed and grow into the potential many predicted? Will Marketplace Lending finally have a principal regulator or will it continue to have its heels nipped by a patchwork of state and federal rulemakers and the courts?

Partner Anna Pinedo will speak on a panel entitled “Challenges in Running an Equity Crowdfunding Platform.” Topics will include:

  • Crowdfunding under Title II – Solicitation vs. Non-Solicitation;
  • “Reasonable Steps to Verify”;
  • The preexisting relationship and CitizenVC: Myth vs. Facts;
  • Working with broker-dealers and other intermediaries; and
  • Liquidity and secondary markets including the FAST Act and Section 4(a)(7).
