In 2011, Jason lobbied alongside Congressmen McHenry and Dold, who succeeded in getting the crowdfunding exemptions passed through the JOBS Act legislation signed into law by President Obama. Jason went on to become one of the founding fathers of Patch of Land, providing debt financing to real estate professionals through his real estate crowdfunding platform. He'll provide information on 'all things' crowdfunding, from regulations to expectations, as well as news and updates about these topics, and insight into how these changes might impact real estate professionals. *Related Video: Meet the Team: Jason Fritton (Co-Founder & CEO)* https://patchofland.com/blog/qa-from-the-patch/2014/11/19/meet-the-team-jason-fritton-co-founder-ceo/ Doug has 20 years of experience in the real estate industry.
