    What:     ITEN 2nd Thursday Networking Event - "Crowdfunding About
              to Get Real"

              Recent legislation (JOBS Act) means that startups will
              soon be able to raise equity funding using crowdfunding
              solicitations. What will the impact be? On the face of
              it, this seems to be great news for startups seeking
              funding, are there any downsides, and if so what are
              they? As the rules landscape changes, how can
              entrepreneurs and investors be in the best position to
