As marketplace lending, crowdfunding and other areas of alternative finance continue to grow, the industry has a greater body of anecdotal and statistical data by which to review its progress.
This growth will be discussed at the Fourth Annual Silicon Valley Crowdfunding Conference, taking place on March 3 and 4 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
The evolution of crowdfunding, real estate and small business formation will all be analyzed by some of the most knowledgeable industry figures as they seek to learn what works and what does not as they seek to help alternative finance reach its potential.
A highlight of the day will be a review of the JOBS Act where a panel discusses its effect on America’s small businesses.
At press time 20 speakers were listed on the agenda, including noted industry legal experts Sam Guzik, Douglas Ellenoff, Georgia Quinn, Mark Roderick and Julian Sidoti.
Joel Block is also a featured speaker. Mr. Block is President of Bullseye Capital Real Property Fund LLC, a real estate hedge fund which acquired distressed multifamily and commercial assets from across the country.
StartEngine CEO Ron Miller has helped drive the success of Elio Motors, a car promising 84 miles per gallon which will retail for $6,800 and XTI Aircraft, a company designing an airplane with vertical takeoff capability.
