The JOBS Act: Implications for Start-Up Funding
May 22, 2012
222 West Merchandise Mart Plaza
Katten and 1871 have organized this panel discussion at the 1871 incubator featuring partners Matthew Brown and Mark Wood. Other panelists include Jim Dugan, co-founder and managing partner of OCA Ventures; Benedict Rocchio, a partner at Baird Venture Partners; Ali Byrd, senior vice president of SecondMarket; and Nick Bhargava, founder of Motaavi.
Part of 1871's "Talks @1871Chicago" series, the program will examine the real-life implications of the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act, which provides opportunities to fundamentally change how start-up and early stage businesses can raise money in the United States by legalizing stock sales through online crowd funding portals, broad advertising and other simplified SEC mini offerings. The panel will also share practical observations on fundraising under the JOBS Act.
