Through live and pre-recorded interviews during the free webcast, the panel of experts will address what this means for private placements and accredited equity crowd funding and what next steps businesses should be taking now as the new rules are implemented.

In a 4-1 vote on July 10, 2013 by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), an amendment was passed to lift the 80 year ban on the general solicitation and advertising of Regulation D ("Reg D") offerings which will go into effect in 60 days. The ruling eliminates many of the limitations by which equity crowd funding sites have been restricted. The SEC will move to create a new class of offering, called a 506(c) offering, which will allow general solicitation (advertising) to accredited investors. This represents a huge new opportunity for start-ups and businesses seeking funding through the crowd funding process. The following distinguished panel of experts who will address what next steps businesses and accredited investors should be taking now as the new rules are implemented:
