ROSWELL, Ga., Jan. 17 /CSRwire/ - Today NowStreet Media, voice for the rapidly emerging private company marketplace (PCM) and LDJ Capital, an international investment advisory and venture capital firm, announced that The SoHo Loft Capital Creation and Crowdfunding (TSLCCAC) Conference, the definitive forum for learning about the rapidly evolving markets for private company stock, will take place on Monday, January 23, 2012 from 1pm to 830pm at Reed Smith’s Conference Center in midtown Manhattan.
In this historic moment, the U.S. regulatory environment, its capital markets and the innovation that drives those markets are simultaneously on the threshold of dramatic change. We are currently witnessing the embryonic period of a cutting-edge stock market just as we usher in a new era of mass media. At the same time, new legislation aimed at facilitating capital formation is being introduced to support this modern infrastructure. There has never been a more opportunistic time to come together and exchange ideas.
TSLCCAC will provide the global investing community with key insight into the direction of the U.S. capital markets during this period of regulatory transformation and the rapid progression of the developing ecosystem. Attendees will gain a new understanding of how capital formation is changing as well as learn where new growth opportunities exist, how social media is transforming Wall Street and most importantly, how to capitalize in this changing paradigm.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the leaders who are shaping the private markets including the private shares desks and exchange platforms, crowdfunding experts and platforms, angel and microfinancing groups, secondary private share buyers, private stock research analysts and senior executives of emerging private companies.
