After the JOBS Act: The Impact on Private Companies

Board Perspective Series

It’s been three years since the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act—better known as the JOBS Act—was signed into law. The legislation was designed to spur business growth by enhancing access to capital for both private and public companies.

For a perspective on the act’s impact, KPMG recently spoke with Kate Mitchell, partner and cofounder at Scale Venture Partners, a firm that invests in early-revenue technology companies, and director of Silicon Valley Bank. She also sits on the board of the National Venture Capital Association, and chaired that board when the JOBS Act was being drafted.
