On Tuesday we posted podcast session #1 with Jason Best and Sherwood Neiss from Crowdfund Capital Advisors, two of the Crowdfunding movement’s most influential thought leaders. Today we bring you parts 2 and 3.
As we mentioned previously, Jason was kind enough to join us in Aspen this past August to speak to Members of our private global investment syndicate, Seraph. That talk was one of the most highly-anticipated of the event, and Jason didn’t disappoint.
Jason and his partner Sherwood have led the charge in the US for crowdfunding, which led to the passage of the JOBS Act, the first significant change to the securities laws in the last 80 years!
Crowdfunding has ushered in a new, highly disruptive movement. Players are clamoring to get into the space, everyone from Angel List to Our Crowd on the top end of equity crowdfunding, to the less well-known players like AgFunder and EmergingFrontiers, which is set to launch its own platform in the next couple of weeks! They’ll be bringing emerging and frontier markets equity crowdfunding to Main Street, with minimum investments as low as $1,000, and the ability to create your own syndicates and funds… Stay tuned!

We’ll be interviewing Luan Cox from CrowdNetic in an upcoming podcast where will be discussing the data analytics side of the industry.
