Discussions will include:
- review of regulations affecting IPO's
- easing of restrictions on financing closely held and start up ventures through "crowd funding"
- role of brokers and "funding portals" as intermediaries in the sale of securities
- new SEC rules and warnings for investors in crowd funding securities
- updates to private placement rules under Regulation D
