First event will be held Sept. 25.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will join the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) in cohosting a series of events around the country to help small business owners learn about new opportunities to raise capital under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. The first event will be hosted by the University of Baltimore’s Merrick School of Business on Sept. 25 from 2:00-4 p.m. EST.
The JOBS Act events are intended to help existing and aspiring small businesses learn about opportunities to raise capital under the JOBS Act. One change already in place under the JOBS Act allows firms to advertise certain private offerings, and another pending change allows firms to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding.
The events are free and will give small business owners the opportunity to ask questions of SBA and SEC staff members. Visit the SBA website to register for the first event.
