Equity Crowdfunding Under Regulation CF: What You Wanted to Know But Didn’t Know Where to Ask.
For the past two years I have been assisting a number of new and emerging companies who are raising funds via an “equity crowdfunding” (or investment crowdfunding) offering under the SEC’s Regulation CF exemption. A byproduct of the 2012 JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act, Regulation CF is designed to not only provide small businesses with access to a wider pool of investors, but also to allow smaller investors the opportunity to invest in these businesses where the increased risk may also correspond to a greater return than more traditional investments (publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc…)
I have recently authored an article for Upsize Magazine on the topic of Regulation CF. If you want the “extra legalese” version, check out my written materials from a presentation I did with David Duccini of Silicon Prairie at Minnesota CLE’s 2022 Business Law Institute.
