Halloween blog special: Sometimes it’s the investors who are scary…

OCTOBER 31, 2014 by ANDREW STEPHENSON Securities laws in the United States are based around the idea of disclosure and protection of the naïve investor from unscrupulous practices by issuers of securities —  the sophisticated guys duping the little guy.  However, for many early-stage companies, the sophisticated guys at the table are the investors.  Not only do they hold all the cards on the terms of the deal, they know exactly what type of recourse they have if things do not work out the way they would like. Take the rules surrounding securities fraud.  To succeed in a securities fraud claim the investor must show that the issuer made a…

Crowdfunding Has Not Killed Angel Investing Yet

BY MARTIN ZWILLING,  Entrepreneurs who require funding for their startup have long counted on self-accredited high net worth individuals (“angels”) to fill their needs, after friends and family, and before they qualify for institutional investments (“VCs”). New crowd funding platforms on the Internet, likeKickstarter and IndieGoGo, as well as the Jobs Act of 2012, are expected by many to ramp up regular people’s ability to fund new opportunities and kill the need for angel groups. I just don’t see it happening any time soon. I just finished a new book, “Angel Investing,” by a friend and one of the most active angel investors in New York, David S. Rose. David is…

Why states are now creating their own crowdfunding rules

Why states are now creating their own crowdfunding rules

By AgBeat, Crowdfunding is changing, how states are keeping up Crowdfunding is rapidly changing, and on the forefront of that movement is Judd Hollas, Founder and CEO of EquityNet. As investors and businesses become fatigued with waiting on the federal government to set national regulations for the crowd funding industries, the states are stepping in. In his own words below, Hollas explains why states are creating their own crowdfunding rules: Over two years ago, President Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startup Act (JOBS Act) into law; however, regulations for equity-based crowdfunding that would allow the average American citizen, who has less than a million…

Key to Real Estate Crowdfunding Opportunity

CrowdFunding Beat  By Jonathan Frutkin, CFB  Sr. Contributor,   The big crowdfunding story of 2014 is all about real estate. The major on-going challenge for real estate developers has always been to quickly find financial partners to make deals happen. To facilitate their deals, developers often have relationships with a handful of lenders and a handful of ultra-high net worth investors (like family offices or equity funds). Instead of limiting their financial partners, more and more experienced real estate professionals are turning to the Internet to raise money. Before September of last year, it wasn’t legally permissible for a company raising money to advertise their offering.…

SEC’s Crowdfunding rule proposal

By Matt Kitzi, States, issuers and investors find different crowdfunding methods for raising capital while waiting for the SEC 10.23.14 On October 23, 2013, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission staff proposed a 500+ page set of rules and regulations for Title III of the 2012 JOBS Act, better known as Crowdfunding. Crowdfunding was the most publicly discussed portion of the JOBS Act, but the Reg D general advertising change was finalized first, and the Reg A+ component may have generated more excitement in some circles. Now, one year after their proposal, the federal Crowdfunding rules have not been adopted or finalized, so the nascent securities…
