Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
Crowdfunding expert Kendall Almerico was featured in Huffington Post's recent article "13 Experts and 13 Trends That Will Dominate Crowdfunding in 2014." In the article, JOBS Act expert Almerico commented on his perception of how equity crowdfunding will roll out in 2014.
"Equity crowdfunding will have a slower start than most people want or hope for, primarily because of the compliance and due diligence requirements the SEC has created. There are a lot of hoops to jump through," Almerico notes in the article. "Once people understand that equity crowdfunding is not as easy as creating a campaign on Kickstarter, but is actually raising money to start a real business and takes planning and an investment of time and money, then the real boom will begin."
Almerico, who was recently ranked #17 on VentureBeat's Top 30 most influential leaders in the crowdfunding industry list, was quoted in the Huffington Post article along with other crowdfunding industry leaders like Congressman Patrick McHenry (R-NC) and U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-VA).
