Investment crowdfunding is suddenly standing in your living room; it sneaked in the back door while you were watching out the front door for action from the SEC on Title III of the JOBS Act. This spring, the SEC issued rules for Title IV of the Act, amending Regulation A, and making investment crowdfunding possible under a separate regulatory scheme. Kendall Almerico, a lawyer, has recently launched the investment crowdfunding site BankRoll, leveraging regulation A, which allows offerings to be pitched to ordinary small investors, not just wealthy (accredited) investors. The new rules, commonly called Regulation A+, represent a game changer for crowdfunding. Kendall is enthusiastic about the new rules and his platform. “With Regulation A+, you are selling securities to the general public. Do you really want to walk that legal and compliance minefield on a funding site without the top legal minds behind it?” “We make funding easy and accessible. I may be a lawyer, but I am an entrepreneur like the companies who use BankRoll,” he adds. Please consider whether a friend or colleague might benefit from this piece and, if so, share it.
