Congressional hearing on crowdfunding, White House blog post on crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is really picking up steam in the U.S.:
  • Hearing #2 in a House of Representatives subcommittee (this time specifically about crowdfunding!) is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 15.  Btw, you can request that C-SPAN covers this hearing, by calling them the day before at 202-737-3220.
  • In a recent blog post from the White House Office of Science and Technology, point#1 makes the case for allowing crowdfunding as part of the Startup America initiative.
This is a great time to get the word out about the petition for crowdfunding at StartupExemption.com.  It's important to show support while this is a hot topic.

I keep track of related events in a dedicated page.
