DiversyFund’s CEO and Founder, Craig Cecilio, is back from another successful Crowdfunding Conference as a panel member.
With CrowdFundBeat putting on an amazing event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA held on March 4th-5th. Entitled the Rise of Alternative Finance, 250 crowdfunding practitioners, executives, educators, and investors attended. All that attended were seeking updated insights on the exponentially growing marketplace finance phenomenon.
First, the program began with keynote talks by Tim Draper, venture capitalist and leading proponent of Bitcoin, Ron Suber, President of Prosper, a leading consumer marketplace platform, and the Richard Swart, from UC Berkeley and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The three keynote speakers provided their perspective on current market conditions, especially relevant, was their unique insights on the mergers of technology and finance (FinTech), as well as Wall Street and Silicon Valley, and future direction.
Additionally, the conference included ten panels, discussing topics from small business lending and real estate finance, regulatory and legal frameworks, retirement account investing, and Real Estate Crowdfunding. While all of the panels were all engaging and thought provoking, this may be in part due to the conference’s agenda being to raise the level of conversation into where this market is headed in 2015 and beyond. Whereas many other conferences merely report on the last three years of development.
The Real Estate Crowdfunding panel included Joel Block, Jason Fritton, Craig Cecilio, Richard McCay, Matthew Sullivan, Harold Hofer. Additionally, the moderators included, Sydney Armani and Carl Eposti.
