February 28, 2017


Hosted jointly by the SEC and NYU’s Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions


The Division of Economic and Risk Analysis (DERA) of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and New York University’s Salomon Center are organizing a half-day dialogue on U.S. securities-based crowdfunding (such as equity or debt). Regulation Crowdfunding, a key JOBS Act rulemaking that came into effect on May 16, 2016, allows for a large number of retail investors to be solicited to purchase unregistered securities of small private companies, thus altering almost 80 years of U.S. securities law practice.

Additionally, the rule establishes a new type of intermediary – the funding portal. The dialogue is intended to bring together practitioners, regulators, and academics to learn, engage, and discuss the state of the nascent U.S. crowdfunding industry and exchange ideas on issues related to investor protection and capital formation.
