Expanded Access to Capital: Securities-Based Crowdfunding
There will be a new option for raising capital starting May 16, 2016. It is the latest part of the Jumpstart Our Business Start Ups (JOBS) Act of 2012, and is called Title III Regulation Crowdfunding. It will allow people who are not "accredited investors" to invest in companies that are raising capital via a new internet-type organization called a funding portal. The SEC has approved this new securities-based crowdfunding exemption and also modernized what are called Direct Public Offerings (DPOs).
We will discuss:
-How can your company benefit from these changes if you are trying to raise money?
-What are the differences among various types of crowdfunding?
-How does the Regulation Crowdfunding process work?
-What should you look for in crowdfunding portals?
-What are some potential pitfalls?
