Michigan Gets Its First Equity Crowdfunding Platform Under Intrastate Law

CrowdFundBeat News Wire, 

Salt Lake City, UT – February 24, 2015 –MichiganFunders.com, built on the CrowdEngine crowdfunding platform, announced the launch of the first M.I.L.E. Act Equity Crowdfunding platform. Under the Michigan Invests Locally Exemption or “M.I.L.E. Act”, state residents can now invest up to $10,000 per investment, per year, in startups, existing businesses, and real estate via crowdfunding platforms.

“CrowdEngine is proud to have been part of many crowdfunding ‘firsts’, and this is another key milestone in bringing equity crowdfunding to the world. This is the same technology trusted by investors and entrepreneurs around the world, but now we’re enabling a new investment experience for intrastate crowdfunding portals that is accessible, efficient, and secure,” said Jim Borzilleri, President.

“Michigan Funders firmly believes that the pursuit of dreams is an inalienable right, and should not be denied or deferred because of access or wealth. Within that is our belief that investors should be allowed access to investments, and businesses should be allowed access to capital – both within a truly democratic market” said Niles Heron, Chief Business Development Officer at Michigan Funders.
