But, while rules and regulations prohibit most Americans from participating in higher yielding ventures, our society’s wealth gap will continue to widen. The inequality of investment possibilities can be largely attributed to the Security and Exchange…

With general solicitation now permitted, startups have the opportunity raise money from a wider range of investors – potentially accelerating their funding. With the SEC’s recent announcements, we’ve gotten an outpouring of questions about the JOBS Act, and what it…
