SEC Annual Small Business Forum Kicks Off

The SEC kicked off its 41st Annual Small Business Forum yesterday, and the virtual programming will run through Thursday of this week. Martha Miller, the outgoing Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation, opened the program with remarks noting the need to continue to revisit policy in an ever changing vast blue ocean of capital raising activity.

Chair Gensler also spoke during the opening of the event, highlighting the work of the Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation and discussing the SEC’s guiding principles in facilitating capital formation.

Following the conclusion of the Annual Small Business Forum, the SEC Staff will develop recommendations and observations based on the discussion at the Forum and the policy recommendations submitted in advance of the Forum.
