Launch.it, the event news and social information management platform, announced today its partnership with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the preeminent trade association for the consumer electronics industry, to power the official news channel for their Eureka Park exhibitors at the 2013 International CES®. Through this partnership, Eureka Park exhibitors will have their own branded news site providing all CES media, attendees and investors access to exhibitor company news, updates and announcements all in one, easy to search, central location. This platform ensures that the more than 130 startups exhibiting in Eureka Park at the 2013 CES, the world’s largest innovation event, can easily be found, discovered and shared before, during and after the event.

 

The Eureka Park TechZone is the premier destination at the 2013 CES where retailers, venture capitalists, manufacturers and other key attendee groups will find budding entrepreneurs, fledgling startups and homegrown innovation. Eureka Park is presented in partnership with the National Science Foundation and Startup America, an independent nonprofit entity launched at the White House in 2011 to help young companies succeed in order to accelerate job growth in America.

 

“Every great company starts with a eureka moment, a unique idea that launches the next must-have product or service. And through our partnership with CEA, we have ensured that you can now find these companies within their dedicated home in the Eureka Park TechZone and online through their dedicated interactive news site,” said Brian Cohen, CEO and Co-Founder of Launch.it. “I’ve worked at and attended CES for more than thirty years and it has been one of the best places to find these fledgling start-ups and diamond in-the-rough companies waiting to be discovered and make it big.”

Crowdfunding Industry Briefing

Crowdfunding Capital Advisors is proud to announce the first of a monthly series of Crowdfunding industry briefings on November 19, 2012.

Access to information is the difference between success and failure—this rings especially true in a nascent industry. In an environment where companies are making decisions based upon regulations that are not even written yet—up to date information and access to insiders will mean the difference between success and failure.  For those who wish to participate in crowdfunding this is of particular importance.

As the leading crowdfund analysis firm and the group at the center of the launch of this global movement, we are being asked on a daily basis for briefings on what is occurring at the highest levels of this global movement. In response to overwhelming demands, beginning November 19, the Principals of Crowdfund Capital Advisors will be launching a monthly briefing on the state of the crowdfunding industry. Here is the link: http://crowdfundingindustrybriefing.eventbrite.com/#

This briefing will provide information and behind the scene updates on:

  • Regulatory changes and updates on the status of the JOBS Act implementation.
  • A global update on regulatory occurrences—what other nations are doing and how to benefit from these changes.
  • Breaking news and data—CCA is a leader in crowdfunding research, all new data produced will be released at these meetings.  Participants will have early access to the full reports before anyone else. These surveys and peer reviewed research papers will give insight into the market data (that has be reviewed and verified by leaders in top tier institutions.)
  • Current industry analysis—no other organization has the view that the CCA team has. We are speakers at all of the major conferences, know all of the participants and see what is occurring from an insider’s perspective. These briefings will provide an overview of the industry with key insights on opportunities to benefit and other information that will give those interested in participating in crowdfunding a true competitive advantage.

This month will be one of our biggest updates. Over the last two months we have or will be:

  • Worked with leaders of the Italian government, entrepreneurial and investment communities. Italy legalized crowdfund investing on October 6, 2012.

  • Advised entrepreneurial, government and industry leaders in Canada regarding crowdfund investing.
  • Speaking at events at the White House, UC Berkeley and SEC.
