Sponsorship of the CrowdFunding World Summit 2013
Signed into law on April 5, 2012 by President Obama, equity crowdfunding provides opens the door to a previously untapped source of growth capital for the entrepreneurial and small business community. By leveraging the power of social media companies can raise funds from fans and future customers. Rewards based crowdfunding has already seen explosive growth in recent years. In their May 2013 report, industry analyst Massolution reported an 81% growth rate for 2012, predicting $5.1 billion in worldwide volume for 2013. With prominent investors such as Google Ventures, Donald Trump, Reid Hoffman, Mike Maples, Michael Birch and Tim Ferriss joining the crowd, equity crowdfunding is poised to be an even larger opportunity.
An emerging market in hyper-growth with no sign of slowing down, and an audience eager for resources creates the perfect storm for a company focused on business development to provide the small business community access to the world’s leading minds on crowdfunding.
As A&E, CNBC, and Yahoo launch crowdfunding TV shows similar to Shark Tank, crowdfunding is dominating the news cycle. The Securities and Exchange Commission is tasked with releasing rules for Title III crowdfunding and people are hungry for meaningful education and content related to crowdfunding. Seeing an opportunity to produce a high-quality virtual online summit where new participants could hear case studies of success stories, the CrowdFunding World Summit 2013 was born.
