Crowdfunding is more than just “kick-starting” wishful projects. With rules from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission now in place, more people than ever can become equity investors in early stage companies.

However, the upside for equity crowdfunding is still a subject for debate. Wisconsin crowdfunding experts will elaborate on this topic during a panel discussion at the Tuesday, Nov. 24, meeting of the Wisconsin Innovation Network in Madison.

The luncheon will be held at the Sheraton Hotel on Madison’s John Nolen Drive. Registration and networking begin at 11:30 a.m., lunch at noon and the presentation at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $25 for WIN members, $35 for non-members and included with WIN corporate memberships.

Panelists include: Stephen DinehartMoola Pitch; Paul Jones, attorney and member of Angels on the Water; and Patricia Struck, administrator of the Division of Securities within the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions. The Division of Securities registers and monitors the activities of broker-dealers, securities agents, investment advisers and investment adviser representatives.

Tom Still will moderate as the panelists discuss ways to be successful with crowdfunding, what entrepreneurs need to know about federal and state regulations on crowdfunding, and what potential investors should be on the lookout for as they consider investing in a business idea.
