Event Details

Join the Chicago Booth and Penn Wharton Alumni clubs on Nov 20 at Zillow as we welcome industry experts to discuss and answer questions about:

  • Crowdfunding
  • The next steps for putting this law into practice
  • The implications on our local technology community


Background: Earlier this year Governor Jay Inslee signed HB 2023 into law making equity Crowdfunding legal in Washington State and giving startups an innovative new way to raise funds. Under the bipartisan measure, a Washington business could raise up to $1 million a year from Washington investors by selling securities of relatively small value. This exciting piece of legislation will certainly change the way entrepreneurs fund their companies in the future, but there is a lot more to it that creating your Crowdfunding campaign.

Panelists include:

Joe Wallin | Attorney & Partner | Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
Ryan Dancey | Co-Founder | Goblinworks, the creator of Pathfinder Online | Goblinworks has raised over $1.4 million from two successful Kickstarter campaigns
Jon Kimmich | Principal | Software Illuminati Consulting
Tabitha Creighton | CEO and Co-Founder | InvestNextDoor, a Crowdlending marketplace for small business

Moderated by:

Rachel Lerman | Reporter | Puget Sound Business Journal
