July 31st was an exciting Booth 61. David Lilenfeld, Founder of Sterling Funder, took us to school on crowd sourcing and crowd funding. This new form of financing for early stage companies is growing rapidly and David is a pioneer in the field. What was wonderful to me as an Atlanta, Georgia native was to learn how progressive our State has been in this area. Georgia is one of the first two states to approve crowd funding and Sterling Funder was the platform for the first offering of this kind in the United States. I am personally registering to be an investor and I would encourage others to follow suit. This will not be for everyone and with every investment, there is risk. However, I am confident there will be some real winners in this space. You can register and learn a lot more about crowd funding by visiting www.sterlingfunder.com.
