Busted!  SEC Targets Reg A+ Marijuana Company, Med-X, in Administrative Proceeding.

By Samuel S. Guzik, CrowdFundBeat special guest editor,  Guzik & Associate The Regulation A+ industry was buzzing this week – not with excitement, but with a healthy dose of trepidation.  One of the first, high (no pun intended) profile Regulation A+ offerings, launched in November 2015, after a seemingly successful “Testing the Waters” campaign, was for a company called Med-X, a startup formed to participate in the newly burgeoning marijuana industry – the so called “Green Rush.” But this month’s headline for Med-X was a bit more sanguine, enough to counteract even the most potent dosage of THC:  “REGULATION A EXEMPTION OF MED-X, INC. TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED.” …

Managing The Risks Of Crowdfunding

By Evan Bundschuh, RPLU  & CrowdFund Beat Guest Editor, For new ventures looking to raise capital or test their market/product, crowdfunding has proven to be the go-to solution with an ease and excitement that other methods of funding lack. With that excitement though comes challenges. As a fairly young platform with a legal landscape that has yet to develop, the risks of crowdfunding are often overlooked. While the risks may seem invisible, mistakes are inevitable, as are the lawsuits and damages that follow. The challenge is forecasting when and where the potential dangers/disasters will arise (before they do) in order to protect your business, its directors, and…

Communications and publicity by issuers prior to and during a “Regulation CF” offering

By Sara Hanks , CrowdFundBeat  Sr.contributing Guest Editor  CEO/Founder, CrowdCheck, Inc. The idea behind crowdfunding is that the crowd — family, friends and fans of a small or startup company, even if they are not rich or experienced investors — can now invest in that company’s securities. For a traditionally risk-averse area of law, that’s a pretty revolutionary concept! In order to make this leap, Congress wanted to ensure that all potential investors had access to the same information. The solution that Congress came up in the JOBS Act with was that there had to be one centralized place that an investor could access that information —…

4 Crowdfunding Tips for Women Entrepreneurs

By Rayanne Dany CrowdfundBeat Media Gust Post. When joining the entrepreneurial journey as a woman, you must be well aware of the fact that how difficult it is to make your mark as an entrepreneur in the male-dominated world of business. It is also a fact that most male funders are notoriously slow in investing in women-led startups.   Luckily, women don’t have to stick to the traditional ways of finding the funds for their business. There is Crowdfunding for them, and it is getting popular every passing year. Crowdfunding is a great way for women to pave their way into the business realm. There…

Crowdfunding with Self Directed IRA?

Lending Club, Well that was unexpected.

By Bo Brustkern, CEO NSR Invest, Crowdfund Beat Gust Post, I certainly didn’t think I would be reading about Renaud Laplanche’s resignation as CEO of Lending Club while drinking my morning coffee last Monday. Since then, the news hasn’t gotten any better and emotions are… shall we say, running high? Here at NSR Invest we have fielded a large number of calls from anxious investors over the past several days, so in lieu of our traditional monthly newsletter I figure let’s just talk about Lending Club. But before I weigh in, I need you to keep a couple things in mind. First, this short missive can…

What “Solicit” Means Under Title III

By Mark Roderick , CrowdFund Beat   Sr. Guest  Contributor, @CrowdfundAttny. Before the JOBS Act came along, listing a security on a public website would itselfhave been treated as an act of “solicitation.” That’s the odd thing: Title III portals aren’t allowed to “solicit,” yet in the traditional sense of the term that’s the most important thing Congress created them to do.         The fact is that Congress was ambivalent when it created Title III portals. They are allowed to list offerings of securities, but are not allowed to do other things often associated with the sale of securities, including holding investor funds or offering investment advice. They…

 JOBS Act Regulatory Action Update

 JOBS Act Regulatory Action Update

  By Scott Andersen, CrowdfundBeat Guest Contributor, Principal at finLawyer.com During her keynote address at the 47th Annual Securities Regulation Institute on October 28, 2015, SEC Chairman Mary Jo White reminded us that the securities industry is an industry closely monitored by its regulators.  While the speech focused attention on the dramatic changes in capital raising now permissible through the JOBS Act, White made clear that enforcement investigations and actions were a critical part of the SEC’s monitoring of the industry.           White stated that enforcement investigations were open and focused on the Rule 506 offering space, focusing on discrete areas such…

Q&A on Title III Crowdfunding “Outline for Portals and Issuers”

By Mark Roderick , CrowdFund Beat   Sr. Guest Contributor,  The JOBS Act was signed into law by President Obama on April 5, 2012. The SEC was supposed to issue regulations under Title III 270 days later, by December 31, 2012. Instead, the SEC issued final Title III regulations last Friday, which will become effective around May 1, 2016, or about 1,466 days after enactment. But better late than never! In its final regulations the SEC has again bent over backward to make Crowdfunding easier, for example: Liberalizing the financial disclosures required of issuers Clarifying that a Title III offering will not interfere with other exempt offerings Allowing Title…
