to Crowd Funding and the JOBS Act with Candace Klein
Szaky is a 30-year-old successful entrepreneur with a high growth,
$15 million business. He, like many, believes that crowdfunding for
equity—a new vehicle for raising capital, expected to be available
in 2013—will make it substantially easier for small businesses to
get off the ground and/or take their business to the next level.
Hear Tom describe how this new avenue for fundraising could have
helped him when he started out 10 years ago and how crowdfunding for
equity may democratize the investment upside of early-stage
companies. For anyone who doesn't understand what crowdfunding for
equity is and why they should care, Tom will put you "in the know"!

them to finish the regulations on time (by the end of this year!) so
that we can start raising money for our businesses and create jobs.
