Startups and early-stage companies have a bewildering new array of options for raising growth capital, each option with a different set of regulations, requirements, raise limits, and investor restrictions.
CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) April 11, 2016
In 2015, the securities crowdfunding galaxy expanded at warp speed, threatening to collide with larger, stodgier galaxies and disrupt whole solar systems.
Title IV of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, launched in the summer of 2015, created Regulation A+ (also known as the mini-IPO). Then the SEC issued final rules under Title III of the JOBS Act, finally opening up “true” equity crowdfunding for all (including non-accredited) investors. The market of potential investors thus went from less than 10 million to more than 100 million Americans. In this webinar series, some of the USA’s top crowdfunding experts explore the expanding securities crowdfunding galaxy.

Startups and early-stage companies have a bewildering new array of options for raising growth capital, each option with a different set of regulations, requirements, raise limits, and investor restrictions. In 2015, the SEC finalized rules for Title IV of the JOBS Act (Regulation A+ offerings) and Title III (equity crowdfunding). Those exemptions come on top of recently finalized Title II (which permits general solicitation under Regulation D), rewards-based crowdfunding (like Kickstarter), and intrastate securities exemptions in at least 22 states. This webinar boils them down to their fundamental distinctions, and explores how a startup should evaluate those options and select the best method (or two or more parallel methods) of raising capital.
