Startup Policy Lab kickoff meetup on Crowdfunding! The Startup Policy Lab (http://www.meetup.com/Startup-Policy-Lab/) is a group to bring together people interested in public policy that impacts startups. It's not an advocacy group, and it's not related to any organization. The purpose is to start bringing the community together to educate, network, organize amongst itself, etc.

Our first meeting hosted by WebFWD will be at Mozilla SF Commons (and streamed on AirMozilla) at 6pm and features experts in funding from UC Hastings School of Law and AngelList. Learn how recent litigation will enable developers to build cool stuff in the future. Details and RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/Startup-Policy-Lab/events/142494272/?a=ea1_grp&rv=ea1&_af_eid=142494272&_af=event
