Fix Crowdfunding Bill Pass House

Crowdfund Beat News Wire, The Fix Crowdfunding Act (H.R. 4855) passed the  House of Representatives by a vote of 394 to 4. It doesn’t look much like the original bill we reported on here. As passed by the House, the bill allows special purpose vehicles, called “crowdfunding vehicles” to engage in crowdfunding, and to make investments in a crowdfunding issuer, subject to significant limitations. It also makes the Exchange Act registration exemption for crowdfunded issuers unconditional if the issuer has a public float of less than $75 million. The Supporting America’s Innovators Act of 2016 (H.R. 4854) creates an exemption from the Investment Company Act…

Has Facebook Quietly Entered Crowdfunding?

By Josef Holm, founder- CEO Krowdster, CrowdFundBeat Sr. Guest Editor The already pretty crowded crowdfunding space just got A LOT more crowded, putting platforms for non-profit fundraisers like GoFundme, Generosity, Crowdrise and many others under extra pressure. Last year, YouTube set out to get their slice of the crowdfunding pie by allowing YouTubers to accept donations via their fully integrated Fanfunding model. YouTube realized that crowdfunding is already huge and that it is only going to grow further. They also know that they are a huge source of traffic and consequently donations to many crowdfunding campaigns. Unsurprisingly, they want to keep as much of that activity as…

“Regulation Crowdfunding” White Paper

“Regulation Crowdfunding”  White Paper

By Jonathan B. Wilson CrowdFundBeat Sr. Guest Editor, Partner, Taylor English Duma LLP  On October 30, 2015, more than three years after the passage of the Jumpstart Our Small Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”) the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) adopted rules that implement the “crowdfunding” provisions of Title III of the JOBS Act.

They permit, for the…

Q&A on Title III Crowdfunding “Outline for Portals and Issuers”

By Mark Roderick , CrowdFund Beat   Sr. Guest Contributor,  The JOBS Act was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 2012. The SEC was supposed to issue regulations under Title III 270 days later, by December 31, 2012. Instead, the SEC issued final Title III regulations last Friday, which will become effective around May 1, 2016, or about 1,466 days after enactment. But better late than never! In its final regulations the SEC has again bent over backward to make Crowdfunding easier, for example: Liberalizing the financial disclosures required of issuers Clarifying that a Title III offering will not interfere with other exempt offerings Allowing Title…
