Business Capitalization and Investment Opportunities Created by the JOBS Act of 2012

It opens up new sources of capital to a wider variety of companies by broadening the base of the individuals who can legally invest in virtually any business they choose. Learn how investors and financial institutions can leverage provisions of the JOBS Act and existing securities regulations to provide growth capital to businesses, create investment opportunities for individuals and strengthen local economies in a new funding model called the Community Capital Marketplace™.
