        “Copyright” By Jonathan B. Wilson CrowdFund Beat Sr. Guest Editor, Partner, Taylor English Duma LLP The impact of crowdfunding on real estate finance and deal-making has been one of the hottest topics of the past year.[1]  With the advent of crowdfunding, real estate developers and investors have multiple pathways to finance their projects and even to plot their exits.  But in many ways the impact of crowdfunding has not yet arrived.  Crowdfunding for real estate is still in the early stages and may take several detours along the way to its final destination.

IPO Fintech Startup ClickIPO Will Bring Initial and Secondary Public Offerings to Main Street Investors 

By Jorge Sanchez, Crowdfund Beat Guest Editor,   The Initial Public Offering(IPO) has long been one of the most honored and revered business milestones. For entrepreneurs, early employees and investors IPOs are seen as the ideal liquidation event. But it is also seen by many as more, the IPO represents the ultimate validation of a business: a metamorphosis of a private company into one subjected to the democracy of the public equity market. As monumental as an IPO is, both for the company and members of the public which support the business, investing in an IPO is anything but public or democratic. ClickIPO Securities, a FINRA…

If I Raise Money Using Crowdfunding, Will I Be Able To Raise More Money Later?

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC. I have rarely attended a Crowdfunding conference where this question wasn’t asked. Maybe those of us in the industry haven’t done a good enough job answering it. Before getting into details, I’ll note that it is no longer a hypothetical question, as it was when the JOBS Act was signed into law in 2012. Today, many companies have indeed graduated from Crowdfunding to venture rounds, to angel rounds, to Regulation A offerings, and even to IPOs. But judging from the look on the faces of the audience, that answer never seems completely satisfying. Isn’t…

Targeted IRRs in Crowdfunding

By Mark Roderick CrowdFunding Beat  Sr. contributing editor and crowdfunding attorney with Flaster/Greenberg PC.   Targeted internal rate of return, or IRR, is used widely to advertise deals on Crowdfunding sites, real estate and otherwise. While target IRR means something to sophisticated sponsors and investors, its widespread and uncritical use makes me a little uneasy, for the following reasons: If pressed, many people don’t know what IRR really means. Investors assume that a higher IRR is better than a lower IRR, but many couldn’t explain exactly why or how. IRR can be misleading. For example, a bond purchased for $100 that pays interest of $10 at the end…

Crowdfunding: Can It Work for Brick & Mortar?

By Cheryl Clements, Crowdfund Beat Guest Post, Founder + CEO of PieShell – Crowdfunding for food + beverage, Having a store front or restaurant is expensive, especially when you’re just getting started. Between build-out and equipment costs, starting inventory, licenses, fees, and working capital, starting a brick and mortar business can easily add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s because of this that many people say that rewards-based crowdfunding isn’t a good option for brick and mortar businesses, but we beg to differ. Crowdfunding is a great option for restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and more (if it’s done in the right way and on…
