Boulder, CO (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
When President Obama signed into law the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act on April 5th, 2012, entrepreneurs and business owners across the nation cheered, because within that legislation was something called the “CROWDFUND Act”. This ruling now legally allows for new avenues to capital for start-ups and small businesses. The implications of this historic act remain to be seen, but one thing is for sure, “Crowdfunding” is about to become a household term in 2013. While the SEC determines the rules and regulations in the upcoming months, many entrepreneurs and investors are left wondering what crowdfunding is, how it works, what’s legal, and how they can use it to finance their companies. Colorado’s largest event on this hot topic, “Simply Crowdfunding”, will educate entrepreneurs and small businesses on exactly what they need to do to get funded up to $1 million using the internet and the “crowd”. The nation’s top experts will share their knowledge and expertise on the current state of crowdfunding and what the future holds when this all goes into effect early next year.
