Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the March 9th premiere of a new webinar series “CROWDFUNDING 2016," designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to the basic of the equity crowdfunding. Moderator David Freedman joins panelists from Riggs Davie, PeerRealty, CrowdCheck, EarlyShares and ECS Capital Partners and Angels to discuss the basics of the crowdfunding investments.

All investors, including accredited and non-accredited, will have vastly more opportunities to participate in private securities offerings, thanks to the launch of Title III securities crowdfunding in April 2016

In 2015, the securities crowdfunding galaxy expanded at warp speed, threatening to collide with larger, stodgier galaxies and disrupt whole solar systems. Title IV of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, launched in the summer of 2015, created a new planet called Regulation A+ (also known as the mini-IPO). Then the SEC issued final rules under Title III of the JOBS Act, creating yet another planet—this one with a plethora of moons (some of which are surrounded by toxic gases)—called equity crowdfunding for non-accredited investors, tens of millions of them scattered across the sky chasing comets and asteroids that may or may not turn out to be optical illusions. This webinar series explores this newly expanded galaxy with state-of-the-art telescopes, manned by the most authoritative crowdfunding astronomers in the USA.

Join some of the leading experts in this unique and growing field as they discuss- in plain English for the non-expert- the basics and the fundamentals of Crowdfunding investments. As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs. Webinars through West LegalEdcenter offer CLE and CPE credits.

The first episode of the series, CROWDFUNDING FROM INVESTOR'S PERSPECTIVE, (Register Here) airs on March 9th at 11am CST and features moderator and author David Freedman and panelists Alexander Davie of Riggs Davie PLC, Heather Schwarz of EarlyShares, Jordan Fishfeld of PeerRealty and Charles Sidman of ECS Capital Partners and Angels.

All investors, including accredited and non-accredited, will have vastly more opportunities to participate in private securities offerings, thanks to the launch of Title III securities crowdfunding in April 2016. Some accredited investors have already been participating in Regulation D offerings on crowdfunding platforms, the hottest area of which has been real estate; and in the meteoric peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platforms. This webinars updates listeners on the results of equity and debt crowdfunding deals over the past few years, as well as intrastate securities crowdfunding, and offer opinions on the prospects for Title III crowdfunding. For beginners, we start by answering the most elementary question: what is securities crowdfunding?
