Everything You Need to Know About Crowdfunding

Did you know that fewer than 1% of U.S. companies have raised capital from Venture Capitalists? Equity crowdfunding has made it possible for people (the crowd) to invest in early stage, privately held companies for shares before they go public.

Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) has provided a new way for startups to raise capital from the general public. In the past, only accredited investors like wealthy angel investors or venture capitalists were able to invest in startups and small businesses with restricted offerings.

However, Reg CF has made it so every day, non-accredited investors can now own shares in businesses that have been vetted by a registered funding portal like Netcapital.

Previously, you had to have an income of at least $200K a year or a net worth of at least $1M to get in on the ground floor of potentially huge companies. Title III of the JOBS Act changed that, allowing anyone to invest and permitting companies to receive up to $5M in funding (previously $1.07M).

The JOBS Act has been a boon to the capital markets. It has provided an opportunity for smaller businesses to raise capital and offer an ownership stake to more investors than ever before.
