The Office delivers an annual report to Congress and the Commission by December 31 of each year. The reports provide a comprehensive resource on the dynamics of capital raising across the country, including: data on capital formation, broken down by life cycle stage, demographic group, and geographic areas; the Office’s policy recommendations; highlights of the Office’s advocacy work; and a summary of the Small Business Capital Formation Advisory Committee’s work.
The Office hosts the SEC’s annual Small Business Forum, where members of the public and private sectors gather to provide feedback to improve capital raising policy for startups to smaller public companies and their investors. Following the Forum, the Commission delivers a report to Congress that includes a summary of the proceedings and recommendations for changes needed to the capital raising framework.
The Office’s strategic and foundational business plans provide a transparent and accessible roadmap of the Office’s advocacy approach, outlining the Office’s mission, goals, and strategic objectives.
