Crowdfunding from the Investors and Fundraisers Perspective

May 9, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Crowdfunding offers many decisions: Which type of crowdfunding? Which type of platform? What will investors think of me?

Thomas Coke, a former securities regulator, and crowdfunding attorney will present an overview of the crowdfunding landscape, including history, types of crowdfunding, and test cases on best practices in the crowdfunding space for companies.

Bring questions and prepare for a conversation as much as a presentation.

Thomas Coke is currently the VP of North America for Hubbub Fundraising. He was previously the CEO of CampusStarter.co, a crowdfunding site for college entrepreneurs that was acquired by Hubbub in June. He has also been the Director of Business Development at CrowdFundConnect and in Business Development for FinTech startup VerifyValid. He advises a variety of startups in the Midwest and speaks around the country on crowdfunding, payments and electronic signatures as well as working on several state crowdfunding bills. He is a graduate of Kalamazoo College and the Michigan State University College of Law
