The Rumblings of Capitol Hill: The Regulatory Outlook for Private Markets and Crypto
Nearly ten years ago, President Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act into law with the goal of improving access to capital for startups and entrepreneurs. Much has changed since that time. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is embarking on an aggressive policymaking and enforcement agenda, which includes enhanced oversight of private companies and private funds, as well as cryptocurrencies and digital assets. What does this shift in focus mean for capital formation and innovation?
Join us on April 5, 2022 at 1:00pm ET / 10:00 am PT to hear Andres “Andy” Trujillo, Head of Business at CartaX, and Holli Heiles Pandol, Public Policy Counsel at Carta, discuss the political dynamics in Congress and the SEC as well as the policy implications for the private markets and crypto industry. A brief Q&A session will follow.
