“Jackson Square is the new Sand Hill Road,” says Mr. Gretsch, 47, referring to the road in Menlo Park that has long been at the center of technology funding. “I’m surprised by how infrequently I go down [to Silicon Valley] because I just don’t need to.”
Your next Entrepreneurial Finance Group Meetup is on Thursday 20 February 2014 from 6PM-9:00PM at The Vault in Jackson Square, San Francisco. The theme is startup investment innovation and an introduction to Seed Change.

On September 23, 2013 Title II of the JOBS Act lifted the ban on general solicitation by startups. Startups are now allowed to solicit their offerings. Simultaneously, there has been an explosion of innovation in entrepreneurial finance, e.g., seeComparison of Crowd Funding Services.
Among these disruptive innovations is Seed Change. Seed Change provisions investment access to curated tech startups. Seed Change will be introduced by your host Kevin Smith, Esq., founder & CEO. Kevin will be accompanied by his co-founder Nate Phillips.
Seed Change allows accredited investors to discover, research and invest in tech startups already carefully selected and analyzed by a team of legal and investment pros. Seed Change eases and corrects problems with the chaotic ‘bulletin board’ style investment sites and methods such as email, newsletters and social media.
General questions and conversations on startup investing and entrepreneurial finance will be conducted and led by FINRA-certified professionals. (FINRA is the largest independent securities regulator in the U.S.A.)
Your Meetup venue is San Francisco’s newest co-working environment and shared office space, The Vault, in historic Jackson Square.
