Dara Albright possesses a distinguished 28-year career in financial services encompassing IPO execution, investment banking, trading, corporate communications, financial conference production as well as institutional and retail sales. Albright was one of the earliest voices covering the JOBS Act and advocating for greater democracy in the equity and credit markets. Albright has produced multiple conferences in the alternative finance space which has hosted some of the most prominent figures in the fintech industry as well as the legislature. In 2012, Albright produced the nation’s very first crowdfunding conference which was headlined by key JOBS Act architect, Congressman Patrick McHenry. That event helped birth the crowdfinance movement and led to the establishment of the industry’s trade and leadership organizations – which she co-founded. Albright’s leading-edge articles and research papers that have helped shape and continue to set the direction of modern finance can be found in Financial Advisor Magazine, FinTek News, BanklessTimes, Equities.com, Crowdfund Insider, Crowdfund Beat, Seeking Alpha, Investing.com, FINalternatives, Real Assets Adviser, CNBC and Business Insider.
