Regulation Crowdfunding Arrives May 16, 2016

Regulation Crowdfunding, an investment regime enacted as part of the 2013 JOBS Act, received approval from the Securities and Exchange Commission and is scheduled to be available May 16, 2016.  Start-up ventures can use Regulation Crowdfunding as an alternative to the costly and time consuming process of making a public offering.  Although investments must be made through broker-dealers or authorized funding portals, investors will be able to contribute up to $2000 (investors having a net worth under $100K), or up to $100,000 (investors having a net worth over $100K), annually, depending on annual income.  Companies offering investments will be required to make detailed disclosures and provide financial statements, but the Regulation Crowdfunding process will circumvent the current registration and public offering SEC requirements.
