Equity Crowdfunding - a New Approach for Investors and Entrepreneurs
Shereen Shermak of Launch Angels
With the passage of the JOBS Act, crowdfunding became part of the investment lexicon. While we await final rules from the SEC regarding general crowdfunding, accredited investors are able to avail themselves of this modality now. Shereen Shermak is CEO of Launch Angels as well as a member of the Investment Committee. This firm scours equity crowdfunding portals and selects opportunities for its investors, resulting in about one deal a month.
She will explain their process and highlight a new way for entrepreneurs to highlight their companies to attract a new type of investment professional.
