Teamwork Can Make Your Dreams Work

The Securities and Exchange Commission recently visited Columbus as the agency continues to meet with investors and entrepreneurs in cities across the country.

In partnership with the Ohio State University’s National Center for the Middle Market, the SEC hosted its 37th annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation on Dec. 12, 2018. This is the first time the annual forum was held in Columbus to highlight ways to improve small business capital formation.

“We have made it a priority to reach out to small businesses across the country,” said SEC Chairman Jay Clayton. “Holding this event in Columbus, one of the top five best cities for entrepreneurs and startups, gives us the opportunity to hear directly from small businesses and their investors on ways to improve our regulatory system.”

This free event included a group discussion as well as breakout sessions that focused on the current options for raising capital, how those options are working for Midwest businesses, diversity and capital raising, and anything else that impacts the financial well-being and success of small business owners.
