The Changing World of Raising Capital
The world of raising capital for start-up companies has experienced a revolution. Prior to the enactment of the JOBS Act in 2012, raising capital for private companies was limited to offline communications and was dominated by the professional venture capitalists. Now the capital raising process has been democratized. Capital can be raised online directly by companies or through intermediaries. It can be accomplished by crowd sourcing to "accredited investors" or, in limited amounts, by crowd funding to everyone. Additionally, companies can raise capital in an "IPO lite" manner by using the new Reg A+.
Come join us on the Columbia University campus for an entertaining evening with a world class panel of the leaders changing the way that capital is being raised for new emerging companies. Co-sponsored by MintzEdge (powered by the law firm of Mintz Levin) and Columbia Technology Ventures, learn what these innovators in the new world of raising capital are thinking and planning.
