‘Crowdfunding’ Rules Are Unlikely to Meet Deadline

‘Crowdfunding’ Rules Are Unlikely to Meet Deadline | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

When the Jobs Act became law in April, supporters proclaimed a new era for small businesses seeking to raise money.

The “game changer,” as President Obama put it in the Rose Garden as he signed the bill, was a provision to let small companies “crowdfund” — that is, sell stock and other securities over the Internet directly to the public. “For the first time,” the president said, “ordinary Americans will be able to go online and invest in entrepreneurs that they believe in.”
