Important new legislation intended to spur job creation and economic growth by improving access to the capital markets for startup and emerging growth companies was signed into law by President Obama on April 5 in the form of the JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups).
On April 11, WilmerHale attorneys and Washington insiders provided timely tips and analysis and detailed the most significant provisions of the act and what they mean for businesses during two back-to-back webinars.
The first webinar focused on the implications for pre-IPO and public companies, broker-dealers and other market participants. The second addressed startup companies and VCs and included a discussion of private placements and crowdfunding.
Below are materials from both webinars, including audio recordings and PowerPoint slides. Click on the links to learn more about the JOBS Act.
