If you missed Bambi Francisco's fireside chat with Kate Mitchell, co-founder and managing director of Scale Venture Partners, here it is. Mitchell has been on the front lines of Capitol Hill to get the JOBS Act passed so that young companies have an easier time raising money from retail investors, and for entrepreneurs to tap into crowdfunding. 

Mitchell shared, with Vator founder and CEO Bambi Francisco and the 400+ attendees at Venture Shift, an evening event hosted by Bullpen Capital and Vator, her insight on what could be in the cards when the JOBS Act makes it through all the regulatory hoops. 

Here's a good write-up on the chat - Kate Mitchell: We're in an IPO crisis
