Intrastate Crowdfunding After Title III

Intrastate Crowdfunding After Title III

By Mark Roderick , CrowdFund Beat   Sr. Guest  Contributor, @CrowdfundAttny.       On one hand, the SEC just proposed several changes to Rule 147 that will make intrastate Crowdfunding easier: We used to worry, at least a little, about the language in Rule 147 saying that you couldn’t offer securities to anyone outside the state. How does this work when your offers are made with the Internet, we wondered? The SEC just proposed eliminating that requirement.

Recent Developments of Michigan Intrastate Crowdfunding

By Irene Tordera, In the last couple of years , while waiting for Title III to be eventually released by the SEC, several US states adopted intrastate crowdfunding laws, which allow companies to raise capital through local securities crowdfunding portals. Among them there is Michigan, whose securities crowdfunding exemption allows resident issuers to offer securities only to local  investors, like it also happens in other states.

Intrastate Crowdfunding

by Irene Tordera, It has been over two years since the JOBS Act was passed, but famous Title III, which would allow crowdinvesting, has not yet been approved.
