You have done everything right. You’ve invented a new, exciting and potentially revolutionary technology. Now you are at the edge of success – if only you can acquire the funding your startup needs. This is where venture capital comes into play, at least in theory. But technology VCs can be fickle. What is hot one minute is not the next.
Moving overseas where it may be easier to attract capital for certain technologies isn’t an option for some technology startups and businesses, particularly university startups.
The solution is equity crowdfunding, which is on course to surpass venture capital as the preferred way for startups and small businesses to raise capital in the U.S.
Join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and publisher of IPWatchdog.com, for a free webinar discussion on Thursday, February 15, 2018, at 12pm ET. Joining Gene will be Irwin Stein, a Wall Street trained securities attorney who has helped many companies, large and small raise capital for over 4 decades.

- Why the JOBS Act of 2012 made equity crowdfunding more feasible and popular.
- The three regulations that govern distinct types of equity crowdfunding offerings, and when each is most appropriate to use.
