President Obama this month signed the Jumpstart our Business Startups – or JOBS – Act. Part of this new law is meant to help connect investors with small businesses and startups.

“It’s those companies, the one that’s created tomorrow, the one that’s created next week, that’s going to create new jobs here in this country,” said Colorado Senator Michael Bennet, addressing the Senate last month on behalf of the ‘crowdfunding’ measure.

On the heels of this newly-passed legislation, a crowdfunding incubator is being launched in Boulder.  KUNC’s Erin O’Toole talks with Boulder County Business Report publisher Chris Wood about the company, Story Stock Exchange, LLC.

As host of KUNC's Colorado Edition, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. And because life is best when it's a balance of work and play, I love finding stories that highlight culture, music, the outdoors, and anything that makes Colorado such a great place to live.
