Fort Collins crowdfunding seminar set for June 29

FORT COLLINS – U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet will play co-host to a crowdfunding seminar in Fort Collins on June 29.

Participants will hear from Bennet, local entrepreneurs and business owners, legal experts and representatives from Colorado investment firms, including venture capital, banks and microfinance. The seminar is free, but space is limited.

The seminar will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Innosphere, 320 E. Vine Drive.

Bennet included the crowdfunding provision in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, which was signed into law this spring.

The law allows small, young and rapidly growing businesses to raise funds from small, individual investors online and through social media. The law seeks to address the difficulties small businesses, young businesses and start-ups face in securing capital, compared with larger companies.
