Hello Lona, David, and John,
It was a pleasure meeting you and others from the SEC during the large group meeting on April 20th. As we mentioned, RocketHub has been working on creating a whitepaper that discusses the JOBS Act from the perspective of an established crowdfunding platform. RocketHub was established in 2009, launched its platform early 2010, and is based in Harlem, New York City. We have grown to be one of the largest crowdfunding platforms in the world (about us), and have successfully moved millions of dollars online through perks based crowdfunding. Furthermore, RocketHub has a strong educational focus and has lectured and provided workshops on crowdfunding at Columbia University, New York University, Fordham University Baruch College, University of Florida, and others. This whitepaper contains our interpretation of the law as written, and provides valuable insights that will assist the SEC to learn about the current crowdfunding market.
We welcome follow up communication, and are open to meeting in person in D.C. to discuss the whitepaper in more detail. Additionally, we would be happy to provide a workshop to anyone within the SEC community, free of charge, that would like to learn more about the current practices behind crowdfunding.
I look forward to hearing back from you. Please let me know if you would like the document in any other format. firstname.lastname@example.org has been included on cc.
