Michael Burtov has hit a number of major milestones in his career, including reinventing the wheel. Literally. The wheel got a much needed upgraded when GeoOrbital developed the revolutionary self-powered electric wheel that can make any vehicle fully electric by simply replacing its standard wheels.

In addition to reinventing the modern-day wheel, Michael has turned the investment world upside down. Until now, only accredited investors could invest in early stage companies. Now, everyone can do it. GeoOrbital is one of the most successful crowdfunded companies, having raised millions by taking advantage of The Jobs Act with campaigns on Kickstarter and StartEngine to name a few.

Michael will talk about his experiences as an entrepreneur and provide insight into the crowdfunding world that he is pioneering. This will be an informative session with time for Q&A. If you have ever wondered what it’s like to bring new and exciting tech to market while securing funding from everyday people, this MeetUp is for you.
