The Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA) will host its second annual Crowd Investing Innovation Forum this August 8-9 in Orlando, Florida, the organization announced Monday.
David Weild IV, an investment banker who formerly served as NASDAQ’s vice chairman, will be the event’s keynote speaker. Weild’s research on small cap IPOs proved instrumental to the formation of the JOBS Act, which provided a framework for crowdfund investing in the U.S. when it passed April 2012.
“There is no one more appropriate than David Weild to address our growing audience of financial advisors and veteran investors who are attending this year’s conference specifically to learn how to capitalize in a shifting market environment rapidly being reshaped by crowdfinance methodologies,” said Luan Cox, founder of Crowdnetic and co-producer of the CfPA conference, in a statement Monday. “Our objective this year is to help traditional financial service providers increase profitability and efficiencies through the integration of regulatory changes and new market technologies.”
Other event speakers include Douglas S. Ellenoff, a partner at law firm Ellenoff Grossman & Schole; Paul Niederer, CEO of the Australian Small Scale Offerings Board (ASSOB); Jeff Lynn, CEO and co-founder of Seedrs; and Sara Hanks, CEO of Crowdcheck; among many others. These crowdfunding industry leaders will discuss ways to leverage, regulate, and bolster the burgeoning financial marketplace.
