Crowdfunding regulations under the JOBS Act intend to make it easier for small businesses to obtain funding and create jobs as businesses grow. What are the potential benefits and drawbacks the new regulations will bring to the entrepreneur community and the financial industry? What are the legal concerns of raising capital through crowdfunding under the JOBS Act and existing federal securities law? How is crowdfunding regulated in other countries that compete with the US in the global capital market? This symposium features discussions on a wide range of crowdfunding related topics given by distinguished experts from the legal academy, financial service industry, law firms and the Ohio Department of Commerce.
