eli-wallach-with-clint-ea-011

By Shane Liddell is the CEO and chief Crowdfundologist , CrowdfundBeat guest post.     Introduction Crowdfunding is by definition, “the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.” The earliest recorded use of the word was by Michael Sullivan in Fundavlog during August 2006. The term crowdfunding was used for the first time in the year 2006 when Michael Sullivan launched Fundavlog. This, however, was a failed attempt to fund events and projects related to a video blog. With the signing of the JOBS Act on April 5th…

On the SEC’s New Intrastate Crowdfunding Rules and the Nanny State

keith-higgins-corpfin-sec-600x443

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate On October 26, 2016, the SEC’s three Commissioners convened at their headquarters to adopt new rules intended to modernize what had historically been a little used path of raising capital for startups, early stage businesses and community-based enterprises: the so called intrastate exemption. It had its origins in our federal securities regulation legislation adopted back in 1933, which required the federal registration of the sale of securities in the U.S.  absent an exemption from registration. In 1933 Congress, in its wisdom, carved out from the registration requirement those offerings that were purely local in character,…

SEC Adopts Final Expanded Intrastate Crowdfunding Rules

US-SEC-gov

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate Today the SEC unanimously adopted amendments to Rule 147 and Rule 504, and adopted a new Rule 147A, intended to modernize and facilitate local offerings by companies in their home state.  The final rules are much improved from the proposed rules issued in October 2015, in response to virtually unanimous views of rule commentors. The only fly in the ointment is that most states will need to update their legislation in order to be able to take advantage on the new, relaxed rules allowing broad internet solicitation. However, sales are still limited to investors in…

SEC REGULATORY ALERT: COMMISSION POISED TO ADOPT EXPANDED INTRASTATE CROWDFUNDING RULES

U.S._Securities_and_Exchange_Commission_headquarters

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate The Securities and Exchange Commission has announced that it will be meeting on October 26, 2016 to consider and adopt amendments to Rule 147, the safe harbor for the issuance of securities pursuant to the so called intrastate exemption.  Rule 147 has been problematic for issuers in the past, as it restricts offers and sales of securities solely to residents within a state’s borders. SEC informal written Staff interpretations issued in 2014 took the position that open internet solicitation by an issuer would preclude the use of this exemption for local businesses, even if sales…

CROWDFUNDING DEBATE

NASAA and Members of Congress Come Together on the Need for the SEC to Expand Intrastate Crowdfunding Rules

dodd-frank-implement

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate It is rare that I am able to find agreement with the publicly stated positions of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA). Equally rare – members of Congress who are traditionally strong advocates for “smart” regulatory reform of capital formation by SME’s to find themselves on the same page as NASAA.  However, there appears to be a growing, even overwhelming, consensus that the SEC’s proposed rules to modify current federal restrictions on the intrastate sale of securities – are on the one hand a step in the right direction.  But on the other hand,…

Real Estate Crowdfunding for Retirement

real estate

Crowdfund Beat Media, Real estate is an important part of any well-diversified portfolio. Not only is it a good way to protect yourself against volatility in the stock market, it can also provide retirement income. One of the best things about investing in real estate is that you have so many different ways to do it. House-flipping is one option if you want to pocket big profits all at once.

Reg A Success Stories

Reg A Success Stories

At Dealflow’s Crowdfunding Conference in NYC last week one of the speakers (a good friend of mine) said that only 2 Reg A+ offerings thus far have closed (been successful), one in real estate (Fundrise) and one in automotive (Elio Motors, a FundAmerica/StartEngine/Hambrecht/Jumpstart customer). That’s incorrect. FundAmerica has, thus far, been a technology and compliance service provider to 11 Reg A+ offerings. Of those, 3 have “failed”, meaning they did not reach their minimums and investors were refunded from escrow. Of the other 8, 6 have met their minimums (and started receiving disbursements from escrow even as they continue to raise capital) and 2 are…
