Private companies within certain size limits may be able sell shares to all investors under Regulation A+. State crowdfunding laws may complicate the picture or afford more opportunities, or both.
CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 17, 2017
Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the on-demand premiere of a new webinar series “EQUITY CROWDFUNDING 2017," designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to the basics of investing in private companies through crowdfunding. Moderator Chris Cahill of Lowis & Gellen joins panelists from firms including Crowdcheck, CFX Markets, Crowdfunding Lawyers.net and Riggs Davie in Episode #1, Title III, Regulation A+, and State Crowdfunding Regimes.
This Financial Poise Webinar series explores the purchase of ownership shares in private companies via crowdfunding websites. "Crowdfunding" for this series refers both to investments made in this way by accredited investors -- given greater scope by Title II of the 2012 JOBS Act -- and those made by any investor under Title III of the JOBS Act. Episodes in the series address the modes of angel investing in a company during its early stages, the opportunities and perils of crowdfunding real estate investments, the money-raising entity's perspective, and a close look at crowdfunding options under federal and state law.
The first episode of the EQUITY CROWDFUNDING series, Title III, Regulation A+, and State Crowdfunding Regimes, (Register Here) features Moderator Chris Cahill of Lowis & Gellen. He is joined by Jordan Fishfeld of CFX Markets, Andrew Stephenson of Crowdcheck, Amy Wan of CrowdfundingLawyers.net and Alex Davie of Riggs Davie.
"Crowdfunding" is an elastic term, covering general solicitation of accredited investors as well as equity investments in private companies available to all investors (Title III). Private companies within certain size limits may be able sell shares to all investors under Regulation A+. State crowdfunding laws may complicate the picture or afford more opportunities, or both. We look at the range of "crowdfunding." To read more on this equity crowdfunding topic click here.
