Second Stop:

RocketHub founder, Brian Meece talks crowdfunding, Platform Houston

We swooped by Platform Houston to check out some crowdfunding talks.

It was a pretty sweet two day deal. Ethan Perlstein, Ph. D spoke the first night and wowed everyone with his detailed correlation charts, graphs and all out data gathering awesomeness from his meth lab crowdfund campaign. The second night was headlined by RocketHub CEO and all time ukulele ninja master, Brian Meece. Big topics were discussed including Whitepaper 2.0, the “Implementation of Crowdfunding” section of Title III of the JOBS Act, championed by Brian and his team. The U.S. may be the first country to pass legislation allowing equity to play a role in crowdfunding start up projects. An all out game changer!

Final Stop!

We met Pablo Sanchez in February during Career  & Education Day at the George R Brown. He teaches at Sterling High School and was looking to do something cool for the students. We stayed in touch and with Sybil Sanchez’s help, Univision‘s Community Affairs Coordinator, were able to give them a sneak peek behind the scenes at Univision TV and Radio.
