2nd Annual Crowdfunding Symposium


Shortly after President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law, we co-founded the Center for Crowdfunding Research at UC Berkeley. Now the program is hosting its second annual Academic Symposium on Crowdfunding Research and Policy. The event will be held on September 11/12 at UC Berkeley. We are excited to announce that we have secured a limited number of additional seats to this year’s event.  

This is the only event of its kind in the world, where we and others present the latest information on how the industry is developing and where top thought leaders interact to discuss global issues.

Here is a link to the event:


Can you think of top thought leaders in crowdfunding, public policy, angel/venture capital, alternative finance, economic development, innovation, entrepreneurship research, foundations and philanthropy – who would benefit by being part of the discussion?

We have faculty from Asia, US, UK, and Europe presenting some excellent research.  The event’s model is to invite policy makers, top academics, government officials, and leaders in major foundations/philanthropies to have a chance to interact and learn from each other. This field is moving too fast to wait for journal articles.  The selection committee at Berkeley had to turn away over 30 papers and is very excited by the interest and level of research.

If you know of people who would be interested, they should email us directly.  Last year we turned away dozens of people who wanted to attend, so if you know people who want to come (including yourself — if you are receiving this email you are part of this community) please encourage them to contact us ASAP.

Hope to see you all in sunny Berkeley next month.
