NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OneMedPlace has announced updates to the programming schedule for its “6th Annual OneMedForum,” January 7-9, 2013, in San Francisco.

A panel of experts – featuring investors, key opinion leaders, and those active in shaping the legislation – will discuss how emerging growth companies can use liberalized general solicitation rules and Blue Sky laws to find capital.
The morning panel on January 9th will discuss the possibility of using crowdfunding in early-series raisings and as bridge financing. This panel will explore the theory behind crowdfunding, as well as the consequences and advantages of this strategy in later rounds of financing.
