Demystifying the Jobs Act: What It Means for Your Tech Startup
Listen to our round table discussion of the JOBS Act and its implications for both early-stage and late-stage companies. Our panel, including Bill Hambrecht, discuss crowd-funding, the IPO on-ramp, and options for raising capital in this online webinar.
Some of the issues we covered:
What will the JOBS Act mean for early stage startups?
•Is crowdfunding real?•Could crowdfunding augment - or even replace - angel and venture investors? Or is it really only relevant to more traditional "Main Street" businesses?•How does crowdfunding compare to existing platforms like Kickstarter?•What else does the JOBS Act do to help companies find and raise capital?•Can I use these new options to raise capital today? If not, when will they be real?
How will the JOBS Act help later stage companies looking to raise growth capital?
•What is the "IPO on-ramp"? Will it really make it easier to go public? Will it help newly public companies communicate with their investors and stay focused on growing their business?•How will the JOBS Act help companies that want to stay private?•What about companies who aren't yet sure what the right path is? Will the JOBS Act give them more options...and more flexibility to explore those options?
