Savvy entrepreneurs are jumping on crowdfunding to raise capital and turn their ideas into reality. But those new to entrepreneurship - or crowdfunding - may find it difficult to get started. Crowdfundingroadmap and NowStreetMedia yesterday announced the Second Annual Crowdfunding Conference and Bootcamp, geared toward entrepreneurs, will take place October 14-15 in Las Vegas at the M Resort and Spa.
The passage of the Jobs Act unleashed crowdfunding as a viable option for entrepreneurs to raise capital, particularly as venture capital dollars have dried up in the past few years. The Crowdfunding Conference and Bootcamp focuses small business owners, entrepreneurs, investors, crowdfunding professionals and enthusiasts, funding portals, investment bankers, financial advisers, venture capitalist, angel investors, incubators, business coaches, mentors, secondary stock specialists, equity analysts and journalists as well as tax, legal and regulatory experts.
The Crowdfunding Conference and Bootcamp includes a keynote by entrepreneurial mentor/advisor Jay Abraham, founder and CEO of The Abraham Group, Inc. The three-day conference will also feature a Funding Portal Pavilion, Crowdfunding Expo Showcase and Crowdfunding Expo Marketplace for entrepreneurs to exhibit their platforms, products and new funding solutions. Also being introduced is a series of workshops for Entrepreneurs, Investors, Financial Advisers, Funding Portals, Broker Dealers, The International Community and Legal and Tax Professionals. All workshops will be spearheaded by prominent speakers from around the world.
