On April 5, 2012, President Obama signed a landmark piece of bipartisan legislation called The JOBS Act into law. The JOBS Act greatly expanded entrepreneurs’ access to capital, allowing them to go to the crowd and publicly advertise their capital raises. Regulation A+ – Title lV of the JOBS Act is a type of offering which allows private companies to raise up to $50 Million from the public.
Americans are standing on the cusp of a revolution in how we access capital.
The signing of the Jobs Act and release of the rules along with advances in transactional technology, virtual solicitation, and financial platform technology make it much easier for businesses, investors, and consumers to raise capital and make investments in a private company than ever before.
On June 19, 2015, Regulation A+ rules adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission became effective. Regulation A+ provides an important capital-raising alternative for private companies in the United States and Canada. Whether you are contemplating a Regulation A+ offering as a precursor to an IPO, as a liquidity opportunity for existing holders or as an alternative to a traditional Reg D offering, you will need to understand and get prepared to comply with the requirements of the final rules and have a marketing plan to build a crowd.

“Equity Crowdfunding isn’t randomly asking for money. It entails building a well-thought-out crowdfunding campaign, based on a sound strategy and solid execution while inviting the crowd to be a part of your journey and share in your success. ” Ruth E Hedges
“Equity crowdfunding is the democratization of the investment process. Under the JOBS Act, anyone, not just the wealthy and well-connected, can now invest in all types of companies.” Kendall Almerico
