Hester Peirce to headline KoreConX conference

KoreConX, an all-in-one software platform enabling investors at multiple levels to access VC-like positions in exciting startups, has announced the date, speaker lineup and agenda for its highly anticipated global conference on equity crowdfunding, “2020: The Year Companies Are Raising Capital from Everyone,” which is scheduled for October 7. Registration and the event are free, and can be found here.

The virtual event is intended to serve as an educational resource for emerging growth companies considering equity crowdfunding, and more specifically RegA+, as a means for raising up to $50 million of capital and creating brand affinity. Speakers will span the ecosystem required to plan, execute, and close an offering. They are hand-selected with expertise in securities law, capital markets, secondary markets, investor relations, compliance, PR, IR, investor acquisition, and marketing focused on raising capital for private companies.

The event highlight is at 5 p.m. ET, a fireside chat between Hester Peirce, the current commissioner of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, and Sara Hanks, the CEO of CrowdCheck and a leading equity crowdfunding securities attorney. The discussion will reveal behind-the-scenes insights on how the SEC balances investor protection and their access to private investments, and specific RegA+ issues.

“Earlier this year we hosted a RegA+ 2020 Summit and were flooded with positive feedback from growing companies, investors, and industry participants. The near-instant result was a collaboration between issuers and our ecosystem to launch successful raises,” said Oscar Jofre, founder and CEO of KoreConX. “Our fall event brings together the brightest minds in this emerging category, which I expect to flourish amid the turmoil and volatility of traditional capital markets. We are especially honored to welcome Commissioner Pierce, a professional who we deeply respect. Her appearance demonstrates the SEC’s commitment to educating our growing audience, and validates the potential and growth we see for equity crowdfunding.”

The conference will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 11 a.m. ET. All of the day’s panels and events will be hosted virtually via Zoom. Please click here to view all speakers, here to view the agenda, and here to register for the free event.
