Press Conference: Intrastate Equity Crowdfunding

Press Conference Introducing Recently Filed Legislation To Bring Intrastate Equity Crowdfunding to IL

Access to capital remains a significant challenge for many small business owners and entrepreneurs in Illinois.  On Monday, March 16th, at 1:30PM, the Small Business Advocacy Council (SBAC) and Rev3 will be holding a press conference highlighting recently filed legislation that will allow Illinois businesses and entrepreneurs to raise funds through intrastate equity crowdfunding.  This new vehicle for raising capital will empower the small business community, foster innovation and stimulate the economy in DuPage County.

Local State Senator Michael Connelly, Representative and chief bill sponsor Carol Sente, SBAC CEO Elliot Richardson, Nic Zito of Rev3 will be among the speakers at the press conference.

Our neighbors in Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana have all passed legislation allowing equity intrastate crowdfunding.  Passing this legislation will  make Illinois more competitive, encourage innovation and spark investments in local communities.

All media are welcome to the event. Please contact me for more information or to speak with Elliot Richardson of The SBAC.
