It seems like only yesterday, when we last celebrated the 4th of July. Time does fly. However, a lot has happened in that time and we’ve made great strides to awaken the American dream through Crowdfunding.
In April, President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law and tasked the SEC to implement it by January 5, 2013. The SEC announced delays to meet the provisions which were set to be implemented by the 4th of July, however, assured of their commitment to the January 5 target. At a time that the American economy is crying for more job creation and economic growth, it would be unwise to derail the JOBS Act and prevent the empowerment of small businesses all over the nation.
Today celebrates not only the United States, but the embodiment of the American attitude to strive for greater things and the courage to reach higher. We’ve witnessed the great reception of crowdfunding in the US and are more committed than ever to bringing more innovation to the grassroots where it can be leveraged for a real impact on the nation, raising entrepreneurs and the economy to the glory they deserve.
We see the horizon in light of the JOBS Act and over the past several months, in our work with the industry, the industry organizations and associations in the US, we’ve also been crafting our own plans for the US in a more tangible form. These plans will see the creation of a US specific organization that caters to the American people. It will also handle companies that seek to utilize crowdfunding and the new paradigm shift in cultivating new growth and opportunities.
Ever since we embarked on this journey, we’ve seen a great reception and hunger for more access to opportunities in the US. From our speeches at various conferences, to the local partners we have worked and work with in the innovation community, this drive is only picking up. We look to the future hopeful and excited about the progress we have yet to see made.
From our global team at Grow VC, we wish you a joyful 4th of July and hope you celebrate, what we see as the strengthening of the American dream.
