Crowdfunding for Equity: A New Frontier

Production Date: April 18, 2016 Practice Areas: Business, Corporate, & Securities Law Estimated Length: 3741 minutes


$ 59 Business, Corporate, & Securities Law In Stock

On October 30, 2015, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted new rules allowing businesses to sell securities via crowdfunding platforms for the first time in the United States. This long-overdue action by the SEC has created an entirely new world of funding for start-up companies and established small businesses; an array of platforms for raising capital by soliciting the public, without an Initial Public Offering. Join business attorney Todd Kulkin as he shows you what you need to know to properly advise your clients to take advantage of crowdfunding and avoid potential pitfalls.


Learning Objectives:

I.      Comprehend the basics of crowdfunding - not just Kickstarter 

II.     Discern when crowdfunding is appropriate for your client’s capital raise

III.    Navigate the different types of crowdfunding platforms and identify which is best for your client’s needs

IV.    Understand the new regulations surrounding selling securities via crowdfunding 

V.     Recognize the disclosures necessary to take advantage of the new SEC Regulations

VI.    Develop ways to advise your clients investing in a crowdfunding venture
