MBRT Announces Keynote Speaker Sherwood Neiss – Co-Founder Crowdfund Capital Advisors to Address CEO Business Summit on June 26-27, 2013

One of the most influential people in Crowdfunding - the new source for raising capital - Sherwood Neiss - who co-authored 'Crowdfund Investing for Dummies' and helped pass legislation as part of the 2012 Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act that was signed by President Obama will address CEOs, federal officials and business leaders at the CEO Business Luncheon taking place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Washington, D.C. on June 26. The Minority Business RoundTable (MBRT) two-day CEO Business Summit will also include both White House and Congressional Briefings on June 27.

When the economy tanked, his house was under water and credit card limits slashed, and he couldn't find capital for his latest business venture, Sherwood Neiss decided to push for a solution to raise small amounts of capital from investors and try to amend the SEC's 80-year-old regulations. "People told us we were crazy," says Neiss, who considered lobbying Congress his full-time job. "The fact that this got through Congress with such bipartisan support is astonishing."

Today, dozens of new investment crowdfunding companies are waiting for the SEC to finalize the rules - hopefully to be announced at the CEO Business Summit - for this  exciting new funding platform that could be an estimated $4 billion financing bonanza and help entrepreneur's raise capital. "There are about 28 million small businesses in America, most in need of capital, and only 3,800 were funded by venture capitalists in 2012. That leaves 99% of these companies needing capital," said Roger A. Campos, President & CEO MBRT.

Sherwood Neiss will join Chief Acquisition Officers, Small Business Directors, SEC officials and other business leaders and entrepreneurs discussing access to capital, alternative sources of financing and access to contracts at the CEO Business Summit.

In honor of the passing of fellow friend and advocate Hank Wilfong, President & CEO National Association of Small Disadvantaged Business, MBRT will dedicate its June 26-27 CEO Business Summit in honor of his memory and call it what he would have said…"Can Do Summit.
