How did an entrepreneur raise 470K on Kickstarter to fund the world's lightest electric vehicle? How do you leverage peer-to-peer lending to support underserved businesses? And what are the legal implications for these new financing models?  

Learn the answers to these questions & more through a panel discussion on the rise of new technology -- specifically crowdfunding, crowdlending, and crowdinvesting -- that's changing the ways citizens engage with their communities. From launching new businesses to investing in local real estate, we'll explore the rise of crowdfunding with entrepreneurs, funding platforms, and a legal expert.
