Upcoming Online Events Spotlight Regulation Crowdfunding and Platforms That Enable Entry-Level Investors to Support Small Companies
Press Release – LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2016 – NextGen Crowdfunding announces its Title III Celebration Series with four online events in May and June to build awareness for the upcoming Title III equity crowdfunding rules.
