It is very rare that someone can show you something you've never seen before… right? Let us try… Two scenarios which you will quickly relate to: 1. Imagine you could be a shark (venture capitalist) on the TV series “SharkTank” ? 2. Imagine you were the entrepreneur and could get $100,000 to $500,000 for your new business, and you wouldn’t have to pay it back, because it’s not a loan, it's shared ownership (equity)? Our company EarlyShares.com is the premier Equity Based Crowdfunding platform empowered by the Jobs Act. Our technology will revolutionize the way small businesses and young startup companies raise capital (seed investments of up to $500,000). Equity Based Crowdfunding was signed into law by President Obama on April 5th 2012, and while not yet in effect, it will be available to all Americans in early 2013. Come to our educational event - no strings, nothing to buy, just information and snacks. It’s all free! Join us at the Seaport Hotel to learn about Equity Based Crowdfunding. Two presentations will be given by founder and CEO Maurice Lopes, followed by Q&A sessions. Topics covered: •Investor Education. What Crowdfunding means from investors? •Entrepreneurs. What Crowdfunding means for entrepreneurs? The event will be of interest to startup founders, small business owners, business incubators and accelerators, venture capitalists, angel investors, and, of course, everyday Americans looking for a new way to invest in companies they see potential in. Attendees will enjoy complimentary lunch and beverages and have the opportunity to network in an informal setting.
