Dear Crowdfunding Followers,Since attending the White House on April 5th when President Obama signed our Crowdfund Investing bill into law we have been working nonstop, traveling all over the world, and watching this crazy idea of ours, ‘Web 3.0, where social networking meets seed financing to solve the funding voidfor our nation’s job-creators (aka Main Street small businesses and startups),’ go global.Here’s what we have been up to:
Crowdfund Capital Advisors
We have incorporated Crowdfund Capital Advisors to ensure that the implementation of the JOBS Act goes smoothly by working with Crowdfunding industry professionals and government agencies. We advise businesses and individuals globally on Crowdfunding, Crowdfund Investing and the JOBS Act – as jobs are not just an American issue. Our current clients include small and large investors/ organizations looking to understand and invest in this new asset class, and governments looking to implement our Crowdfund Investing framework so they can spur entrepreneurship, innovation, and jobs. As well we advise soon-to-be Crowdfund Investing platforms and professionals looking to launch and grow profitable crowdfunding businesses within the regulatory framework.

Crowdfund Industry Advocates
According to Forbes contributing author, Chance Barnett of Crowdfunder, we are two of the Top Ten Most Influential People in Crowdfunding and we’ve become the Crowdfund Investing industry advocates.
We are authors!
Prior to the bill signing, John Wiley & Sons publishers contacted us about authoring Crowdfund Investing for Dummies. Thanks to two weeks in seclusion, we’ve finished writing the 360-page book! The abridged e-book will be available November 27th and makes a great holiday gift! You can pre-order it here! We are also contributing to another book on Crowdfund Investing.
We have been asked to contribute to a good deal of publications including TechCrunch and VentureBeat. Here are some articles you may enjoy:
