The JOBS Act is here, and now investors, entrepreneurs, and the rest of the startup community have to figure out what this means. There are a lot of unanswered questions and a lot more to the JOBS Act than just crowdfunding. With some of these new regulations, it’s important for both investors and entrepreneurs to understand how the new law affects what they do, say, and present and how it could impact future investments (both positive and negative).
 
Topics addressed:
Solicitation – what is it? What does it mean, and why does this matter to me?
Crowdfunding – is this going to change the world?
What do the new state level rules mean?
 
Hear from an angel, VC, entrepreneur, and Boston’s experts on the law about how the JOBS Act is affecting the funding landscape – both long and short term.
