While many are entering the nascent world of crowdfunding, it is important to recognize the need to be smart about the changing landscape. Yes, we are looking at new ways to form capital via the online platforms, so financing structures and UI/UX elements are fundamental. But this is a highly regulated and legislated space, i.e., the world of securities issuance. As many in the space offer some knowledge of finance, as well as social media and engagement, it is critically important to navigate the securities environment correctly, particularly the legalities of issuance, disclosures, investor categories, and the ramifications if not doing things the right way.
Such an environment requires proper navigation of the appropriate statutes, a comprehension and application of frameworks, and defining the segment that a platform is to participate. Whether this is dealing with Reg D, or Reg A or A+, platforms and issuers are well advised to engage proper legal counsel whom understands that the Securities Act of 1933 was not written in a time of mass communications through the web. How to blend best practices of securities transactional activity in an e-commerce way is what the following attorneys have accomplished. We see these practitioners as best of breed, offering invaluable insights to this burgeoning domain. While recognizing their achievements, we also are grateful to them for their “can do” attitudes to further the next generation of finance.
