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…

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…

Setting Up an Efficient Crowdfunding Platform

real-estate-crowdfunding-2-1024x683

  BY Rachael Everly ,CrowdFund Beat Guest Post, Crowdfunding platforms are a product of technological advancement. However at the end of the day they are a financial solution and their success is dependent on the economic situation at a given time. Many businesses prosper when the economy is booming and all is good. Crowdfunding on the other hand has always prospered when the economy is not doing well, and even during the worst recessions. During the last recession of 2008, there was a great lack of confidence among banks. This led to a drying up of sources of finance for the small business owner and…

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. Becoming a landlord is another way to go if you’d rather be on the receiving end of monthly rental payments.   Real estate crowdfunding, is an alternative that’s gaining popularity. It’s estimated that the real…

IS THE SEC’S ACCREDITED INVESTOR DEFINITION UN – CONSTITUTIONAL?

a

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate Many have railed against what can be argued is the irrationality of protecting non-accredited investors from themselves, i.e. the accredited investor definition.   The definition was crafted by the SEC back in the early 1980’s as the centerpiece of what has been the most utilized method for companies to raise capital in an offering not registered with the SEC, Regulation D. In simple terms, if a company wishes to raise capital without registering its offering with the SEC, it can utilize the Regulation D “safe harbor” created by the SEC to sell securities to both accredited…

Regulation A Timeline

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAenAAAAJGVlODI3NmFiLTc2MDQtNGZhMy04ZWUwLWMwZWYwM2RhMjMwNw (1)

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC. “How long will it take?” That’s one of the two questions I’m asked most often about Regulation A. The answer is that if everything goes smoothly, it should take about 20 – 24 weeks from the day an issuer decides to raise money using Regulation A until it begins selling securities. Every company is different, of course, and lots of things can delay the process, but 20 – 24 weeks is a good rule of thumb. With this Regulation A Timeline, I hope to provide issuers and their advisors with a framework for conducting…
