Tech In Focus: CROWDFUNDING
Location: Clark Nuber | 10900 NE 4th St #1700, Bellevue, WA, 98004
Join the WTIA on September 9th at Clark Nuber as we welcome industry experts [including Bill Beatty, Securities Administrator for the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions] to discuss and answer questions about:
The next steps for putting this law into practice
The implications on our local technology community
Background: Earlier this year Governor Jay Inslee signed HB 2023 into law making equity Crowdfunding legal in Washington State and giving startups an innovative new way to raise funds. Under the bipartisan measure, a Washington business could raise up to $1 million a year from Washington investors by selling securities of relatively small value. This exciting piece of legislation will certainly change the way entrepreneurs fund their companies in the future, but there is a lot more to it that creating your Crowdfunding campaign.
