LAS VEGAS, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Global Crowdfunding Convention (GCC), the world's premier annual event where people gather to network and learn about #crowdfunding, announced that Blue Moon Advisors (www.bluemoonadvisors.com), a leading network of finance experts advising companies on becoming "fund ready" at all stages of business, has signed on as the event's Platinum Sponsor. Blue Moon Advisors' sponsorship is a reflection of its ongoing commitment to innovation and introducing companies to the right type of capital raising sources with the proper presentation materials in today's challenging business environments.
The GCC, now in its fifth year, will take place October 15-17, 2016 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Now the world's largest global crowdfunding event, GCC is the leader in crowdfunding education, and this year's event promises to bring together the best and brightest speakers, experts and campaign all-stars from the crowdfunding industry.
"From the beginning of the Jobs Act, the GCC has proven itself to be the one crowdfunding event each year that delivers participants with the tools and knowledge they need to achieve success," said Tony Drexel Smith, CEO of Blue Moon Advisors. "We are pleased to play a major role in this year's event as there is an incredibly strong alignment between our two companies' commitment to creating a solid platform for entrepreneurs and investors alike."
Effective May 16, 2016, equity crowdfunding became one of the new ways entrepreneurs can get the funds they need if they understand the FINRA rules and are prepared. "In the past, startups and small businesses have too often lacked the ability to raise capital," said Ruth Hedges, Founder and Executive Producer of GCC. "Blue Moon Advisors – along with their strategic business partners Castle Peak Finance, InvestAGrand.com, and Marketing For Securities, LLC – are key players in the new equity crowdfunding industry. They'll be contributing valuable information at the convention as part of our collective efforts to show attendees how to raise funds under Title II and III (and other funding sources) and know where to find solid investments online."
During the Convention, Tony Drexel Smith, CEO of Blue Moon Advisors, will present a keynote speech entitled "Business Capital 101," in which he will discuss realistic expectations for the acquisition of speculative capital through proven funding Instruments, including crowdfunding, debt, equity and royalty financing.
