Crowdfunding Is Just Beginning

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC. For those of us who work in the Crowdfunding space, it can seem as if we’ve covered a lot of ground since April 5, 2012, the day President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law. At a conference in New York earlier this year, a panelist actually referred to Crowdfunding as a “mature” industry. Nothing could be further from the truth. Crowdfunding is actually just beginning. A couple weeks ago I received a promotional email from OurCrowd. Founded by Jon Medved, one of the most successful venture capitalists in the world, OurCrowd has developed into the…

Attorney Sanctioned by SEC for Unregistered Broker-Dealer Activity

By  Bret Daniel , Wealthforge.com, CrowdfundBeat Guest Post, The SEC crackdown on unregistered entities continues to grab headlines. Recently, we wrote about the importance of complying with the broker-dealer registration requirement under Section 15(a) by highlighting the latest violations by portfolio managers, online platforms, and individuals. We suggested that anyone that helps to facilitate a securities offering, even in the broadest sense, should consult a lawyer about the necessity of registering as a broker. The most recent SEC enforcement action, however, demonstrates that even lawyers can get tangled up in the wide net cast over unregistered broker-dealers. EB-5: Visa or Security? Mark Ivener was a…

A Reflection of Online Money Lending

By Steve Cinelli , CrowdFund Beat Sr. Editor, @stevecinelli Some many months back, in fact prior to their listings, I wrote a piece questioning the lofty valuations of the marketplace lending platforms (LC and ONDK) as they entered the public markets.  The basic thesis was recognizing the fundamental business these platforms engaged, i.e., money lending, and how others in the same space, albeit not as “technology positioned”, delivered the same product and/or service, and I thus intimated that the newbies should be valued with similar metrics to the incumbent financial institutions. In observing the platforms’ performances over the last year, as well as evolving market conditions,…
