This annual forum provides a platform to highlight additional measures to improve small business capital formation and address whether unnecessary, duplicative, or outdated regulations can be eliminated or reduced.
The November 30 event will begin at 9 a.m. Central Standard Time (10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) with opening remarks from the SEC Chairman and Commissioners followed by a morning panel discussion that will explore how capital formation options are working for small businesses. Panelists will include representatives of Texas-based small businesses and advisors to the small business community.
Following the morning panel discussion, attendees will work in groups to formulate specific policy recommendations. These breakout groups will develop recommendations on a variety of issues related to small business capital formation, including exempt securities offerings and smaller registered offerings.
This year's annual small business forum is being hosted in partnership with the Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship, Growth, and Renewal at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin. It will be held in the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin at 1900 University Avenue. The forum will be open to the public and the opening remarks and morning panel discussion will be webcast live at www.sec.gov.
