Coca-Cola is sponsoring panels that support women’s empowerment. On the panel “Learn How To Access Capital Using Equity Crowdfunding From The Women Who helped Pioneer,” Ruth E. Hedges explains how the equity crowdfunding process allows an issuer to grow an army of passionate investors from their fans, followers, customers, and the general public to drive entrepreneurship, supplier diversity, transform communities and create generational wealth.
Equity Crowdfunding has been legal in the USA since 2015, thanks to Ruth, who helped get it legalized in the Jobs Act of 2012. The rules let startups and private businesses raise capital from the crowd, and it allows the general public to invest for as little as $100.
Now everyone anywhere in the world can be an investor in a US company, not just VCs and private equity firms.
