Health Tech Hatch Widens Crowdfunding Choices for Health Startups
*Corrections to Business Week's May 24th Story
- The NLCFA is not a lobbying group, nor are we anticipating becoming one.
- David Marlett is politically an independent, and has managed both Republican and Democratic national races.
- The NLCFA does have an office in DC, and does have staff.
- Equity crowdfunding does include debts or IOUs.
- Marlett is not an active attorney or CPA at present (by his own choice), and doesn't have any intention of legal representation of crowdfund participants, and that is not why he founded the NLCFA.
- We have no rival, chief or otherwise. Indeed we are not in competition with the CfPA, and instead we encourage people to be members of both groups (as evidenced by Lopes's comment), though we know that encouragement is not reciprocated.
- The NLCFA is not the 'actions of one individual'. Any glancing look at our National Leadership page will show otherwise.
- The NLCFA also offers free membership for students and faculty.
- Marlett doesn't spend his days pitching businesses, but spends the majority of his days (and nights) working with our numerous committees and initiatives, and looking for solutions for people seeking to engage in crowdfunding.
- Our differences exist primarily, as best we can tell, in how we treat our members, and how we treat others in the industry, and how we promote the industry. We're very welcoming and are simply too busy for silliness as the article implies.
