Kendall Almerico Announces Opening of Fund Hub JOBS Act Compliance Business

CrowdFunding Beat News Wire 

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 27, 2014

Crowdfunding Expert Kendall Almerico has joined with Securities Regulatory Lawyer and FINRA Board of Governors member Kevin Carreno as well as Hispanic Securities Lawyer George Guerra to open, a website offering services to JOBS Act equity crowdfunding investors, businesses and broker-dealers.

“The JOBS Act is supposed to democratize the investment process and let anyone, not just the rich, invest in new business startups,” Almerico says. “But the SEC has created 585 pages of proposed rules that make the process too complicated for most people or businesses to use without help.”

Fund Hub is designed to provide user-friendly, easy and affordable compliance and due diligence services for equity crowdfunders, both businesses and investors, who want to use the JOBS Act. “I would emphasize the word ‘affordable’ in that concept,” Almerico says. “We want to make is easy and within anyone’s financial reach to use equity crowdfunding.”

Fund Hub will not only provide services to investors, businesses and broker-dealers using the JOBS Act for equity crowdfunding, but also will provide compliance and due diligence services to businesses who are raising capital through other means such as a Regulation D offering.

For more information or for media inquiries or interviews, contact Kendall Almerico at Media(at)FundHub(dot)Biz or by telephone to 813.410.4658.
