Read Frequently Asked Questions

Crowdfunding came into existence under Title lll of the JOBS Act. The JOBS Act requires the SEC to write rules and issue studies on capital formation, disclosure and registration requirements. The JOBS Act provides a newly formed cost effective access to the formation of capital for smaller corporate America. This webinar will discuss the various forms of crowdfunding and funding portals and the regulations that presently apply and other regulations that may be applicable soon.

Why Should You Attend:

Crowdfunding is the newest and most unique methods for smaller companies, whether startups or existing, to raise investment capital in a cost effective manner. However, it is still in the early stages of its development.

It is extremely important for those involved in the financial investment community to understand what crowdfunding means to the investment world. This means FINRA brokers/dealers, registered investment advisories, stockbrokers, investment advisors, management of family offices, pension fund managers, and all other financial intermediaries should understand what crowdfunding is all about. It is also extremely important for accredited investors to have an understanding of this new capital formation tool. Financial salesmen or advisors must be able to answer questions about crowdfunding or they will lose their credibility with investors.

This course will define the parameters set out by the JOBS Act, the history of crowdfunding, funding portals, the importance of due diligence in the crowdfunding process, and more.
