 Thinkcrowdfund.com invites you to the upcoming free equity crowdfunding town hall meeting coming to Houston, Texas. We invite bankers, investors, entrepreneurs, nonprofit managers serving the small business community and media who are interested in learning more about Texas' intrastate crowdfunding rules. More than 20 million unaccredited investors will soon be able to invest up to $5,000 per year in equity investments for small businesses raising under $1 million. The new regulation will help small, midsize to high growth companies raise the capital they need, prove their model and create new jobs. This presents tremendous opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors and the Texas economy. Attendees will receive materials and tools on how to register with the state, file disclosure forms and tips on complying with state regulations.

 

This session will address the following:

·         Who is eligible to market securities in the State of Texas, the proper process for             launching an equity crowdfunding campaign,

·         Which platforms are registered with the state and what investors can do to protect             themselves.

·         Tips on how to create a transparent and successful crowdfunding campaign.

·         How equity crowdfunding may economically impact local businesses and communities.
