Investments enable citizens to bolster their incomes and plan their financial futures. 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…

The SEC announced that the ban on general solicitation has been removed for small businesses seeking startup capital, allowing for sweeping changes in the way businesses find funding. This announcement is a productive step forward to fully enact the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) passed in early April of 2012. 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…
