A special annual meeting of crowdfunding industry thought leaders from around the globe.

With 7 billion plus people on our planet and growing we have a great opportunity for crowdfunding to help so many of them. Recognizing the great transformations that businesses, economies and societies are currently undergoing, we look to create ways that will focus on how to expand new crowdfunding models into collaborative sustained processes which will drive solutions for more successful crowdfunding outcomes for a socially more inclusive virtual world. We will also discuss challenges, solutions and actions, always in the spirit of global citizenship and to show how crowdfunding is a universal act of the best of our humanity.

The Global Crowdfunding Crowdfunding Convention & Bootcamp was a huge success and extremely beneficial to all those involved. It was the first crowdfunding conference we attended representing Pubslush, our global crowdfunding platform for the literary world, and the connections that we made were amazing. Ruth did a great job coordinating a perfect blend of people and businesses and it was a wonderfully diversified representation of the crowdfunding world. We will surely be back next year and look forward to seeing the friends we made and hearing about new and exciting platforms.

About the 3rd Annual Global Crowdfunding Convention and Bootcamp (#GCCB2014)

Founded in 2012 and created by Jobs Act pioneer Ruth E Hedges, "GCCB" is the flagship global crowdfunding convention. Each year, startups, entrepreneurs industry leaders, founders, investors, government officials, lawyers, accountants, brokers, non profits, creative artists and many others converge in Las Vegas from more than 15 countries. They come to learn at the highest level of education and benefit from a unique blend of deep content, unbeatable networking in a collaborative environment, and to work together on strategies to help each other grow & succeed in the crowdfunding industry, from every city and town around the world.

Held in the the exciting city of Las Vegas, NV, content ranges from world class keynote speakers, to interactive how-to workshop sessions. It's also the first and only event to host the Annual Worldwide Council of Global Crowdfunding Leaders. Enjoy everything from live startup crowdfunding pitches with attendees, to influential & experienced panelist discussions covering the newest content, tools, curriculum and advances arising from this ever changing new crowdfunding industry.

We plan hard all year round to deliver a healthy dose of fun because we know that nobody enjoys boring business conferences, including us! That’s why we’ve carefully crafted an environment that encourages both education as well as fun interaction such as watching a basketball game with a beer and toasting chocolate and marshmallow smores over a fire pit on the sand, taking a boat out on the lake, siting in comfy red "Fatboy" chairs during our legendary cocktail party's with drinks and passed Hors d'oeuvre in the "Funding portal pavilion", exchanging business cards in our Asian business card exchange speed networking session, enjoy individual one on one mentoring during UpGlobal office hours, and so much more - we deliver!

Now in its third year, there’s nothing quite like "GCCB" (but don't take our word for it, click here to see testimonials and a recap from last years event.

So join us in Las Vegas NV, the most exciting city in the world, this October 23rd-25th for an unforgettable experience and be a part of history.

About Ruth E. Hedges:

Ruth E. Hedges 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 is hosted every October.

In 2012 Ruth also became a founding board member 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 Crowdfundingroadmap, an innovative SaaS platform for businesses to use for 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.
