The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced it is partnering with the Herb Kelleher Center for Entrepreneurship, Growth, and Renewal at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin to host the SECs annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation on November 30. This annual forum provides a platform to highlight additional measures to improve small business capital formation and address whether unnecessary, duplicative, or outdated regulations can be eliminated or reduced.

The annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation provides the opportunity to hear directly from small businesses about their experiences interacting with investors and our regulatory system in a very important segment of our capital markets, said Chairman Jay Clayton. As a hub for innovation, Austin is a fitting place for this discussion. I look forward to the forums recommendations and will carefully consider them as we work to fulfill the SECs mission.

The morning session will feature a panel discussion exploring how capital formation options are working for small businesses, including small businesses in Texas. Participants will then work in groups to formulate specific policy recommendations. Information on the panel participants and the full agenda will be announced in November and available on the forum webpage.

The forum will begin at 9 a.m. Central Time and will be open to the public. It will be held in the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. The opening remarks and panel discussion will be webcast live. The breakout group sessions will not be webcast but will be accessible by teleconference for those not attending in person. Anyone wishing to participate in a breakout group either in person or by teleconference must register online by November 27.

The online registration will soon be available on the forum webpage.

Members of the public are invited to suggest recommendations or topics to be discussed at the forum by calling the SECs Office of Small Business Policy at (202) 551-3460.
