About this event

Ruth is one of the original pioneers of the legislation which ultimately became the JOBS Act. In 2010 she worked with Congressional leaders and other industry change-evangelists to move what was originally the Entrepreneurs Access to Capital Act through Congress to its eventual signing as the JOBS Act, and was honored with an invitation to the White House for its Crowdfunding Champions of Change event. She has gone on to create the largest annual crowdfunding conference in the world, which started in 2012 and hosts every October.
Ruth is also a founding Board member in 2012 of the Governance committee for the Crowdfunding Professional Association Organizing (CFPA), a founding Board member of the CrowdFund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA), and launched Global Crowdfunding Day to help promote industry awareness. She is also the CEO of Crowdfunding Roadmap, an innovative SaaS platform for businesses to use in preparing to raise capital via exemptions pursuant to the JOBS Act. As an industry expert Ruth has been interviewed or quoted in over 35 major publications, and was selected to teach the first university-level course on securities crowdfunding at UNLV. She is also passionate about giving back to the community and has been featured in the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the New York Times, the LA times, and People magazine for her work with Oxfam America and the Hollywood Hunger Banquets. She was on the Second Century Campaign board and helped raise over $16 million to build the new Union Rescue Mission, and is the recipient of the Certificate of Appreciation from the City of Los Angeles for that work. Ruth has been featured on ABC and the Financial News Network program “American Entrepreneur”.
