TechCrunch | What The Senate’s Crowdfund Act Means For The Tech Industry Right Now | Crowd Sourcing, crowdfunding etc | Scoop.it
The Crowdfund Act, a bill to reduce restrictions on regular people investing in privately held companies, passed through the United States Senate today with flying colors in a 73-26 vote, having passed through the House of Representatives this past fall. But legislative matters are by definition quite complex (which is, of course, ostensibly why we elect people to deal with them on a full-time basis.) So we talked to Chance Barnett, the founder and CEO of Crowdfunder.com, to get an idea of what this really means for startups, potential investors, and the technology community at large.
