The Ins and Outs of Crowdfunding Your Startup

crowdfunding your startupA new state law signed earlier this year opens crowdfunding to ordinary investors, making it easier for startups to sell shares to raise money. Now you have the opportunity to get the latest updates from the state legislator, regulators, and crowdfunding experts who wrote, passed, and are implementing this law.

Gregory Paley–entrepreneurial mentor and advisor who teaches crowdfunding for SeattleSCORE–will open with an overview of the crowdfunding landscape for those unfamiliar. Next, representative Cyrus Habib and Joe Wallin will talk about the new law and its implications for entrepreneurs. Bill Beatty and Faith Anderson from the DFI will then discuss the newly written draft rules and the rule-making roadmap.

Attendees will have opportunity to ask questions to all the speakers and panelists during the Q&A, network with entrepreneurs, investors, and advisors, and discuss the proposed rules and potential challenges ahead.

Panel also includes:

  • Lewis McMurran, McMurran Enterprise. Lobbyist who was instrumental in getting the crowdfunding bill through the State Legislature.
  • Burt Hamner, Cofounder and President of Hydrobee. Crowdfunding expert.
