The champions called Crowdfunding Pioneers will be honored in a ceremony to be held on June 4 at the White House.  The ceremony will recognize the entrepreneurs who embody the benefits of crowdfunding to spur the growth of startups, small businesses, and game-changing projects in the country.

Among the crowdfunding thought leaders who have been invited to attend this event are:

"We are a firm believer that the JOBS Act initiative will grow and provide much needed capital to small businesses leading to sustained job growth in the USA,” says Bruce Lipnick.

Another one of the early adopters of crowdfunding who has also been invited to grace this important event is David Drake, Founder and Chairman of LDJ Capital in New York City and of The Soho Loft (TSL), an event-driven financial media company, which promotes and facilitates capital formation for the private company marketplace (PCM).

Mr. Drake is the co-founder and founding Executive Committee Board Member of the Crowdfunding Professional Association (CFPA.org) – a national and global trade association with the leading global crowdfunding platforms as members. He is also a Founding Board Member of the CrowdFund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA) Executive Committee, the leadership group heading up US crowdfunding for equity developments.  Mr. Drake is an expert and a thought leader on the USA JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act), including Reg A+, Reg D 506, Crowdfunding Capital, and Onramp IPO. Mr. Drake was involved in lobbying senators and congressmen for the said Act, which the President signed into law April 5, 2012. The Securities and Exchange Commission is now working with CFIRA.org to identify best practices in the crowdfunding industry.

On the Champions of Change, Mr. David Drake has this to say, “These fellow leaders have tirelessly worked towards a new future for our generation.  The legal challenges behind the SEC 1933, 1934, and 1940 Acts are being hurdled, and we are sprinting towards a brighter future; thanks to this generation of crowdfunders.  I am proud to have been able to work with crowdfunders all over the world and will, without fatigue, continue to write about it on a regular basis.”
