The full text of a speech by Launcht.com CEO, Freeman White, at the Senate Summit on Equity Crowdfunding held on July 13th, 2012.
We would like to start by acknowledging that all of us want to get this right. I take your attendance here as an affront to any cynic who says that crowdfunding can’t be well regulated or that it will take too long to figure it out. Together we will figure it out, that is why we are here today. The reason we wanted this meeting to happen was so that we could examine the intent of the law and, through discussion, propose robust solutions that will clarify the law and make it work.
