New York, NY (PRWEB) July 01, 2013 -- The Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA), the leading trade organization for the crowdfunding industry, is pleased to announce that David Weild IV, renowned capital markets expert and former Vice Chairman of NASDAQ, will be delivering the keynote address at the CfPA’s 2nd Annual Crowd Investing Innovation Forum on August 8-9, 2013 in Orlando, FL.
Referred to by many as the “The father of the JOBS Act,” Weild’s research at Grant Thornton and the OECD is frequently cited by the financial media as well as a broad range of legislators, regulators, academics, the IPO Task Force and the White House Jobs Council. His work linking the reduction in the number of small cap IPOs to rising unemployment and illustrating how structural changes to stock markets have caused systemic hardship for smaller issuers, their investors and the economy, was the inspiration for the movement that led to the JOBS Act.
“There is no one more appropriate than David Weild to address our growing audience of financial advisors and veteran investors who are attending this year’s conference specifically to learn how to capitalize in a shifting market environment rapidly being reshaped by crowdfinance methodologies,” said Luan Cox, Founder of Crowdnetic and Co-producer of this year’s event. “Our objective this year is to help traditional financial service providers increase profitability and efficiencies through the integration of regulatory changes and new market technologies.”
CfPA’s 2nd Annual Crowd Investing Innovation Forum will feature a powerful lineup of presentations, interactive panel discussions as well as an exhibit hall comprised of leading and emerging crowdfinancing portals. The discourse will spark change, challenge existing paradigms and debate conventional thinking as well as unleash new perspectives in the pursuit of real solutions. The event is sponsored Ellenoff Grossman & Schole, CrowdClear, IRA Innovations, EarlyShares and CrowdCheck.
