Entrepreneurs can attend a series of virtual seminars on small business capital raising next month, with the added opportunity of making policy recommendations on the issue for consideration by Congress.
The Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation will be hosting the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation from April 4 to 7. This will be the 41st year the forum has taken place.
Each day will cover a different topic related to small business capital raising, with a presentation by an expert on the subject taking place from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Each session will also allow participants to develop further policy recommendations.
Topics at this year’s forum include:
- April 4 – Empowering Entrepreneurs: Tools to Navigate Capital Raising
- April 5 – Hometown Entrepreneurship: How Entrepreneurs Can Thrive Outside of Traditional Capital Raising Hubs
- April 6 – New Investor Voices: How Emerging Fund Managers Are Diversifying Capital
- April 7 – Small Cap World: What to Know and How to Think Ahead
“Each year we look forward to hosting the Small Business Forum and engaging with entrepreneurs, investors, and other thought leaders who are passionate about capital raising,” said Office Director Martha Legg Miller. “By providing a platform for Forum participants to develop capital raising policy recommendations, the SEC is able to keep a pulse on the real-world impact of our rules on communities across the country.”
Participants are asked to submit their policy recommendations by 3 p.m. on April 1 to email@example.com.
