The JOBS Act was the catalyst for an overdue disruption of the traditional tech-adverse private investment industry and in less than two years, the crowdfunding industry has skyrocketed.  Over 100 platforms have entered into the market with approximately $2.5bn in deal flow for 2015 and the expectation to grow to $250bn by 2020.  Learn about the tremendous opportunities that have been created for both investors and deal-makers alike.  Join us for an interactive program; topics include:
 
  •     Why has real estate crowdfunding become so popular?
  •     Who are the players in the industry & what are the differences between platforms?
  •     Market size and growth metrics
  •     Deal-makers' experiences
  •     Regulatory overview, particularly in Illinois
  •     What we can expect next in the future of this industry?
