More info on crowdfunding this week

This sounds like a new day is finally dawning for business fund raising.

This week, the SEC updated rules for crowd funding / new equity offerings per the JOBS act. … On April 9, 2015, Forbes magazine offered a good introductory video with three national experts on these latest SEC rules. … see … http://www.forbes.com/sites/devinthorpe/2015/04/09/crowdfunding-experts-address-new-regulation-a-rules-live/

These folks talk about some of the most recent (& IMHO overdue) news on REG ‘A’.  For real estate, one speaker – Sam Guzik (a securities attorney in L.A.) suggests that for some real estate investments, a “Tier 1” equity offering offering may be appropriate.

Another major rule clarification relates to how entrepreneurs “test the waters” to see if their new potential equity offering appeals to new potential investors.

Of course – as the attorneys recommend – talk with a securities attorney before doing anything.
