Equity Crowdfunding allows retail investors (those not in the upper 10%) to invest in private equity deals, i.e., become Angel Investors. With the JOBS act passed under the Obama Adminstrations, firms can now solicit investors directly and they don't have to be "accredited" investors. While any firm can do this, it is opening up opportunities for impact investing into social enterprises and for investment into local, community-based firms.

Jonny Price, the Director of Fundraising for Wefunder, will be talking about the equity crowdfunding industry, how it opposes and collaborates with existing finance like VC, and how you can use it to broaden your investment opportunities and be more intentional in how you deploy your own capital to accomplish more than just a financial return.
