We invite you to join us in NYC on October 16 for Wall Street’s second annual Crowdfinance Conference. Our stellar lineup of speakers features financial veterans as well as legal experts and representatives from the top companies covering the vast scope of the emerging crowdfinance industry.
As the flow of capital becomes increasingly more democratized, rising asset classes such as peer-to-peer and peer-to-business lending along with debt and equity crowdfunding are fostering change across the entire financial services sector. This constitutes a floodgate of opportunities for investment bankers, financial advisors, fund managers, asset allocators, family offices, financial consultants and investors of all sizes.
Tickets for the conference are still on sale, but there is a limited amount of space left and we will sell out fast! Please visit our site for all ticket purchases and to view the entire roster of speakers we have lined up. Feel free to email us with any sponsorship or other inquiries at: [email protected].
