SeedInvest on Venture Association of New Jersey Panel


Tomorrow SeedInvest CEO Ryan Feit will serve on the Venture Association of New Jersey’s Democratizing Capital Formation: The JOBS Act & Crowdfunding Panel. Ryan will be joined by Moderator Frank Graziano, Managing Partner of Monmouth Venture Partners; Vince Molinari, CEO & Founder of GATE Technologies; Stacey Rasgado, VP of Corporate Development at SecondMarket; and, Jay S. Rand, Partner at SorinRand LLP.

From the VANJ’s overview:

Our country needs jobs! Recognizing the reality that small business is the engine of job creation in America, and that this sector needs better access to capital, Congress passed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act in April, in a rare, nearly unanimous, display of bipartisan cooperation. This legislation – while it will have little direct impact on job creation – will transform how securities can be privately sold and business capital raised from private investors. It is perhaps the most radical change in regulations that have stymied capital formation since the current securities laws were passed in the 1930s. By democratizing access to capital, the JOBS Act will enable many innovative, new vehicles to finance a broad array of small businesses, including many that fall outside the scope of more traditional venture capital deals.

Our panel will explore the details of the JOBS Act, its implications for capital formation, and the opportunities it creates for entrepreneurs and investors.
