Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
EarlyShares (http://www.earlyshares.com), the leading Equity Based Crowdfunding platform with a mission to connect investors and entrepreneurs in a safe and secure way, will participate in the Innovative Investing Symposium: a cooperative effort by The Soho Loft, Thomson Reuters and PartnerConnect East, designed to foster and bring to light the new investing opportunities for those looking to explore and venture into alternative asset classes. The event will take place April 3-5, 2013 at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center in Boston, MA.
EarlyShares’ CEO, Heather Schwarz-Lopes, will speak and exhibit at the conference providing investors and business owners’ vital and up-to-date information related to Equity Based Crowdfunding, a new method of investing in growing businesses and start-ups that pools from a large and diverse group of investors. She is scheduled to speak at the “Ecosystems Embracing Crowd Funding” panel, on April 5th 2013 at 11:30-12:00 pm. She will be speaking along with other key players of the Crowdfunding space. “Igniting this conversation around innovative investing is the perfect way to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act. Equity Crowdfunding will disrupt the traditional methods of investing and capital formation by incorporating elements of our daily lives like social media and our online presence to better suit our ability to access capital from the crowd” says Lopes.
Founded in 2011, EarlyShares has focused its efforts on educating entrepreneurs, business owners and investors on the benefits and key strategies of Crowdfunding, while the SEC finalizes the rules regarding the industry. Nonetheless, April 5th represents a crucial day for the Crowdfunding industry having been the day the JOBS Act got signed into law. EarlyShares is excited to celebrate this day at such a relevant event, which will bring together the best of the entrepreneurial and investing networks, as well as national media. Boston is a prime location for the symposium, being a hub for investment and entrepreneurial spirit.

Equity Based Crowdfunding is a newly created type of investing whereby groups of people make investments online so that new and existing businesses can grow and prosper. Until recently, general crowdfunding has been used to donate money for artistic and philanthropic projects and applications. Equity Based crowdfunding uses the power of the crowd and the Web to provide capital to startup businesses in return for an investor stake. This way the new investor class, meaning every one of us, will have a stake in what they invest in.
