Full Agenda With Speakers Announced for the Growth Capital Expo

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2014) - The full agenda for the Growth Capital Expo 2014 on pre-IPO and microcap investment and finance has been posted at http://growthcapitalexpo.com. The agenda details more than 30 hours of programming over two and a half days, featuring two dozen panels and presentations, with more than 40 expert speakers from every corner of the emerging growth capital market.

"It's an exciting program that addresses the current issues and new opportunities in emerging growth company finance," said Brett Goetschius, Expo program director. "The faculty we have assembled for the Expo's general session panels include some of the most active investors, bankers, legal counsel and advisers in the late stage private and early stage public capital markets. Collectively they represent the best and most innovative ideas in the market today."

The Growth Capital Expo takes place on April 29 through May 1, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Here's a glimpse of what attendees can expect to learn:

Day One: The State of the Public Equity Private Placement Market

Day Two: Wall Street meets Crowd Street

Day Two is devoted entirely to the impacts and opportunities in the JOBS Act that are revolutionizing the market for emerging growth company finance. Not in 30 years has so much financial innovation been unleashed into the markets at once. That innovation will come at a cost to some legacy systems and structures that do not innovate in response. On Day Two, Expo panelists will offer the information and tools to ride the JOBS Act wave rather than be washed away by it.

Day Two speakers include:

CROMWELL COULSON, OTC Markets
TIM SULLIVAN, Microventures
CARL TORRILLO, ACE Portal
DAVID LOUCKS, HealthiosXchange
HOWARD LEONHARDT, California Stock Xchange
JOE WALLIN, Davis Wright & Tremaine
RICHARD RODMAN, Crowdentials
MARK ELENOWITZ, BANQ
SAM GUZIK, Richardson Patel
ADAM HOOPER, REALCrowd

The panel discussions will take place concurrently with break-out presentations by public and pre-IPO emerging growth company management teams in the action-packed atmosphere of deal making and networking that is the hallmark of the Growth Capital Expo. Additional speakers are expected to be added to the agenda in the coming days, and will be announced via Twitter @GrowthCapExpo, #GCE2014.
