Share New Source of Funding: The Jumpstart our Business Startups Act (JOBS) Act

Event Details

Congress passed the JOBS Act in April to facilitate capital raising by small to medium sized companies.  It legalizes crowdfunding, allowing entrepreneurs to sell shares in privately held companies to the general public.  With some restrictions, firms will be able to raise up to $1 million in 12 months from small time investors.  Private companies will be able to tap into a huge market of investors who are not currently available to them and will be able to raise money from individuals who are not “accredited” without going public. Investors who have not been considered wealthy enough by the SEC to be designated an accredited investor will now be able to make direct equity investments in private companies.

This is a new channel for fundraising.   Whether your interest is as a startup looking for new funding sources or a more mature company seeking alternative ways to access the public markets, this legislation can help.
