The Securities and Exchange Commission announced that it has partnered with the U.S. Small Business Administration to host seminars detailing new fundraising methods under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. The release notes that one topic of discussion will be the pending crowdfunding regulations. While current platforms offer either perk based investment opportunities or investment opportunities to accredited investors, the new regulations will expand this market drastically allowing non-accredited investors to participate in many investment opportunities. This new market will also offer new opportunities for small companies looking to raise capital.
The first event will be held in Baltimore, Maryland. For additional information, click here.
