Integration of Regulation A+ Offerings with other Offerings

By Mark Roderick CrowdFudning Beat, Guest Contributing Editor, This week I spoke about Regulation A+ on a panel at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. One topic was whether offerings under Regulation A+ would be “integrated” with other offerings, including offerings under Title II. The word “integration” describes a legal concept in U.S. securities laws, where two offerings that the issuer intends to keep separate are treated as one offering instead. For example, I raise $1 million in an offering under Rule 506(b), where I admit 19 non-accredited investors. Needing more money, I start another offering under Rule 506(b) a month later – and for the same…

The Evolution of Securities Marketing and its Impact on Issuers, Intermediaries and Investors

The Evolution of Securities Marketing and its Impact on Issuers, Intermediaries and Investors

CrowdFunding Bear News Wire, Oct 10,  2014 By Dara Albright, Crowdfunding Beat , Guest Contributor  With the exception of the occasional red-hot IPO, investments don’t sell themselves. If they did, there wouldn’t be much need for financial media, research analysts or investment advisors. Nor would there be any acting gigs for former Law & Order stars, who always seem to wind up back on the airways, peddling some sort of financial product like reverse mortgages, gold bullions or discounted brokerage services (cue Law & Order theme clang). Security offerings, like any type of product vying for market share and devoted customers, require a solid marketing strategy in order…

Newly Legal: Buying Stock in Start-Ups Via Crowdsourcing

Newly Legal: Buying Stock in Start-Ups Via Crowdsourcing

Amateur investors may soon be able to use crowdsourcing to buy equity in start-ups. But should they? At least one expert–the author of a report on Kickstarter–recommends caution. Under a newly implemented provision of 2012’s “Jumpstart Our Business Start-ups Act” (JOBS Act), it became legal this week for small start-ups to solicit investments publicly, via the Internet. They can sell shares without first having to register them with the Securities and Exchange Commission. An entrepreneur in need of cash can raise up to $1 million a year, provided he or she sells shares only to “accredited” investors—meaning ones who can show they have a net…

Kickstarter Comics – Idea Source for Investors?

Kickstarter Comics – Idea Source for Investors?

Remember the good old days? When Hollywood A&R Men would swarm the small press tables at San Diego Comic Con, looking for properties they could get an option on before anyone else? Dropping a thousand here, a thousand there, it was small change for Hollywood and maybe, just maybe, they could find the next Spider-Man. But most went nowhere. And those that did didn’t exactly do great numbers, a Bulletproof Monk here, a Surrogates there… and it faded away, somewhat. It was also a way for big publishers to find smaller nooks they may be able find a home for. Now it seems it might be back. And rather than Artist’s…

Capital Creation & Crowdfunding Explored: CrowdFund Roundup

Capital Creation & Crowdfunding Explored: CrowdFund Roundup

Is CrowdFunding a Scam Boom or Bust, Godsend or Scam, New Vision or Confidence scheme; we’re amazed at the conclusions leapt to about crowdfunding.

CrowdFunding, like all systemic modifications to the business process, will build slowly towards a new capital formation process encompassing all that is right about attracting capital to high quality ideas. It will do this it brings the ultimate consumer into the product lifecycle sometimes even before the money is needed and will…

Seedrs: In Crowdfunding, Momentum is King

Seedrs: In Crowdfunding, Momentum is King

The more than 17,000 investors who have joined Seedrs since our launch in July 2012 break down into two broad categories. The vast majority are “independent” investors, people who have come to Seedrs to discover and invest in great startups. The smaller group by number—but not, as this post will explain, by importance—are “network” investors who joined Seedrs in order to invest in a specific startup that they had learned about from a friend, family member or someone in their external network. For a startup seeking capital through Seedrs, the independent investors often seem like the most exciting of the two. These are people whom…
