Grow VC celebrates the 100th episode of its Everyone Funding Startups podcast with special guest U.S. Congressman Patrick McHenry – author of the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act now patiently awaiting action in the SEnglish: US Capitol at night. A mosaic image o...enate. Congressman McHenry explains how his “crowdfunding bill” provides startups and small businesses with much-needed capital by finally allowing “ordinary” Americans to enter a market long dominated by “accredited” (read: already rich) investors.

The Congressman discusses recent opposition to his proposal and why he believes the Senate alternatives fall short of creating effective and efficient crowdfunding markets. But most importantly, Representative McHenry urges listeners to advance the debate and demonstrate the power of crowdfunding by leveraging that power within the legislative process.
