Join Carta CEO Henry Ward for a discussion with Congressman Patrick McHenry, Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, as they discuss the future of public policy for raising capital in private markets and expanding ownership to more investors and employees. The discussion will cover:

  • The future of capital formation policy framework for the private companies;
  • Investor access to private markets; and
  • Driving broad-based equity ownership.

This is part of Carta’s Connected series, where we are connecting people, ideas, and solutions to build a more equitable world. In these public-facing forums, we’ll translate market and business dynamics into public policy solutions to increase equity ownership and drive private market liquidity.
