Happy Birthday Regulation CF (shame about the compliance failures)

Happy Birthday Regulation CF (shame about the compliance failures)

BY SARA HANKS , CrowdFundBeat  Sr.contributing Guest Editor  CEO/Founder,Crowd check.Inc. So, one year ago today, Regulation CF went into effect.

We use “Crowdfunding” to mean raising money for a business or other venture online. We say “donation-based Crowdfunding” when we’re talking about Kickstarter, where people ask for donations.

Crowdfunding to Meet Energy Demands

By Anum Yoon Crowdfund Beat Guest Editor,  The idea of crowdfunding has gained popularity in the past few years. Individuals contributed approximately $880 million in 2010, when the concept was still new and innovative. Today, the practice of crowdfunding generates tens of billions for startup enterprises, budding entrepreneurs and motivated professionals on an annual basis.
