Equity Crowdfunding for Startups
Equity crowdfunding is a mechanism that enables broad groups of investors to fund startup companies and small businesses in return for equity. Investors give money to a business and receive ownership of a small piece of that business. Equity Raisers offers equity crowdfunding investments to non-accredited investors using Title III offerings.
FINRA and the SEC will now regulate the amount individuals can invest using Regulation Crowdfunding under Title III of the American JOBS Act. Investors making less than $100,000 per year are able to invest up to $2,000 or 5% of annual income through equity crowdfunding. Investors making over $100,000 per year can invest up to 10% of their annual income, but no more than $100,000 per year.
