Allegiancy CEO Steve Sadler featured speaker at world renowned South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive exhibition to offer his insight into disruptive technology and crowdfunding

Richmond, Va., March 7, 2016CEO Steve Sadler of Allegiancy, a CRE-tech firm disrupting the commercial real estate industry, will be a featured speaker at a crowdfunding exhibition event at America’s iconic South by Southwest (SXSW) festival that’s the famous launching pad for startups such as Twitter and Foursquare.

Sadler is a featured expert panel speaker discussing the new wave of equity crowdfunding and how forward leaning businesses and entrepreneurs can tap this new source of capital at the SXSW NextGen Crowdfunding’s Ignition 1.0 event on March 14.

“My message is: join me as a disruptive tech innovator,” Sadler said. “Speaking at SXSW is an opportunity to get in front of a sophisticated, savvy audience that shares my vision for tech innovation, disruptive technology and driving profits. I believe it’s a pivotal moment for the American economy and equity crowdfunding has the potential to radically alter the trajectory of existing businesses and startups alike by providing an injection of capital at a time when it’s so far out of reach for so many.”

Sadler is leading Allegiancy, a commercial real estate active asset management firm, into a $30 million “mini-IPO” offering under the new Regulation A+ rules adopted last year by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Allegiancy’s mini-IPO campaign will attack inefficiencies in the $15 trillion commercial real estate industry with the injection of capital. The firm is taking an aggressive, multi-pronged strategy that combines crowdfunding with broker-dealer and institutional channels to raise $30 million.

SXSW, in its 30th year in Austin, Tex., is the convergence of emerging technologies, original music and independent films that’s a launching pad and networking beehive for entrepreneurs, visionaries and creatives. From New York Times bestselling author and social media expert Gary Vaynerchuk, to Twitter, Medium and Jelly co-founder Biz Stone, to Pay-Pal co-founder and current CEO of Affirm Max Levchin, to co-founder of YouTube Steve Chen and dozens of others to include Pres. Barack Obama and Star Wars creative force J.J. Abrams, SXSW offers an array of “mind-expanding” presentations by industry leaders.

NextGen Crowdfunding helps Americans explore the new era of equity crowdfunding. With unique live events and streaming video content, NextGen allows individuals to discover, search and support specific companies launching crowdfunding campaigns.

The NextGen Crowdfunding Launchfest at SXSW will be held at Maggie Mae’s, an Austin institution. At its Ignition 1.0 event, Allegiancy will be one of six innovative startups to be featured. The programming will be live-streamed to an online audience.

Ignition 1.0 is the first in a series of events and streaming video content that will provide companies with a unique opportunity to launch equity crowdfunding campaigns in front of an engaged audience. Ignition 1.0 will help these companies gain exposure for, and develop consumer interest in, their crowdfunding campaigns.

Sadler will be speaking on the panel, “Who are the Trailblazers of the Equity Crowdfunding World?” along with five other industry thought leaders and platform CEOs.
