Scott Jordan spoke in Boston on March 25 at the Harvard Business School Association’s event Crowdfunding Healthcare: Secrets from Industry Insiders (co-hosted with HBS Healthcare Alumni Association).
Two years has passed since the congress approved JOBS act, which would allow small businesses to raise capital from ordinary people. The long-anticipated September 23, 2013 repeal of the ban on public advertising of private securities offerings will help to usher in a new era of transparent, information-rich, and crowd-vetted capital markets. Now thousands of healthcare and life science emerging companies can take advantage of new mechanism to raise funds from accredited investors. For this event, Harvard Business School Association assembled some of the most active and respectable crowdfunding practitioners that specialize in healthcare and life science:
Moderator: Daniel Gorfine, Director, Financial Markets Policy, Milken Institute.
Panelists were Andrew Farquharson, MBA 1999, Managing Director, InCube Ventures; Scott Jordan, Founder, HealthiosXchange; Howard Leonhardt, Inventor & Entrepreneur; Greg Simon, Chief Executive Officer, Poliwogg; and Sean Schantzen, JD, Co-founder & COO, Healthfundr.
Attendees learned the secrets of the crowdfunding process, the latest industry news, and different practices for interested parties (e.g., entrepreneurs, investors, financial services). See Scott Jordan’s slide deck here.
