SEC Small Business

On November 20, 2017, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announced the agenda and panelists for the 36th Annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation.

The November 30 Small Business event will begin at 9 a.m. Central Standard Time (10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) with opening remarks from the SEC Chairman and Commissioners followed by a morning panel discussion that will explore how capital formation options are working for small businesses.  Panelists will include representatives of Texas-based small businesses and advisors to the small business community.

Following the morning Small Business  panel discussion, attendees will work in groups to formulate specific policy recommendations.  These breakout groups will develop recommendations on a variety of issues related to small business capital formation, including exempt securities offerings and smaller registered offerings.
