Amanda Hat, Senior Director of Growth Innovation at Indiegogo, will join other industry leaders discussing current and future directions in crowdfunding.
Aubrey Chernick, founder of NextGen Crowdfunding noted, "We are delighted to have Amanda's and Indiegogo's participation at our crowdfunding event. There is a growing feeling that we are entering a new era of crowdfunding that could spark a new economy."

Emphasis will be on Title III of the JOBS Act which was approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 30, 2015.
Hat will participate in a fireside chat at this inaugural event where the focus will be on ways in which everyday investors can now fund startups and emerging businesses.
