Laws that changed the regulations on how small businesses can raise startup money and how non-accredited investors (everyday people) can make early investments in potentially high-value startup opportunities.
Technically, both Title III (Reg. CF) and Title IV (Reg A+) as they both leverage ‘the crowd’. However, only Title III is customarily associated specifically with crowdfunding.
Both are used to raise money from ‘the crowd’ of accredited and non-accredited investors. The basic differences are: how much someone can invest, how much a company can raise and varying filing requirements.
It is a regulatory framework created by the SEC and FINRA that allows early stage companies to sell securities to the general public. The major highlights are that one company can raise up to $1,070,000 annually, while investors may invest up to 10% if their net worth or income.
Yes. However, ‘securities’ is a broader term that can include both equity (common and preferred), debt instruments and any other investment contracts considered securities.
Traditional crowdfunding is similar to the Kickstarter model – ‘the crowd’ pools their money, and participants receive a product or reward for supporting a company but those persons have no financial benefit if that company does well in the future.
Securities Crowdfunding gives ‘the crowd’ equity ownership (or other security) in the companies they support, making them ‘early-stage’ investors. Through securities crowdfunding, investors may also profit-share with the company.
All investments carry risk, so you must always do your due diligence. That said, yes, Reg. CF is Federally regulated and structured to protect non-accredited investors.
American residents over the age of 18 may be eligible. Your specific ability would be determined by the securities laws in each state.
Minimum investment limits are set by each company. In general, people can invest a couple hundred dollars or lower. Details on the minimum investment of a specific company can be found on that company’s offering page.
