Capital Formation Day in Pittsburgh


SEC Commissioner Piwowar Listening Tour in Pittsburgh/Capital Formation and ICO’s
March 26, 2018
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Ascender, 6401 Penn Ave.

SEC Commissioner Piwowar has requested a meeting with key funders, attorneys, and early stage founders to join him on his stop in Pittsburgh and share insights around regulatory issues impeding or impacting capital formation.  He is also keen on discussing ICO’s and the SEC’s current concerns.

Joining the Commissioner on this day is Congressman Rofthus, a member of the Financial Services Committee, who is also keen on early stage companies’ funding issues.  Issues around “access to capital” would be a good point to discuss with the Congressman – as well as protecting the budgets for NIH and SBIR funding.

The Congressman and the Commissioner Piwowar are encouraging attorneys and funders to invite a client or a portfolio company.  The entrepreneurial presence adds impact and demonstrates the region’s activity.  The Press is being invited by the SEC and Congressman Rofthus.

I am thrilled that Pittsburgh is part of this Listening Tour (not just Boston and San Francisco).   I do hope you will you attend and bring a client portfolio CEO with you.
