Your Capital Raising Team
Crowdfunding is not a new phenomenon. Crowdfunding has actually been around for centuries! From churches to schools to businesses, crowdfunding is simply a group of strangers pooling their funds together to accomplish a single goal or project.
Crowdfunding has recently been made into the new buzz word for startups and companies seeking funding. This newfound fame can be attributed to President Barack H. Obama signing into law the JOBS Act of 2012. This law is designed to lower the requirements for companies to raise money from the general public. Previously, only the wealthy and connected had access to the type of investment opportunities that have the ability to create life changing wealth. Now, with the new law, anyone can invest in private investment offers with the proper SEC exemption obtained by the company seeking funding.
The new law added two exemptions that give companies the opportunity to promote their investment opportunity and accept investment from anyone. The first is the Regulation A+ exemption. This exemption allows companies to raise up to $50 million in 12 month period. Companies may advertise using social media, TV and radio ads, press releases, in person events and much more to reach investors. Investors may be accredited, having a net worth above $1 million or annual income of $200,000, or unaccredited. Companies may use a website and investor management software to process and receive investments, making the process extremely efficient.
In order to qualify for this exemption, companies issuing debt or equity shares are required to offer significant disclosures and will require full review and approval by the SEC and the company’s legal counsel. Estimated costs to prepare the necessary CPA audits, legal reviews, business and marketing plan and SEC application fees and expenses to launch and successfully run a Reg A+ offering are estimated to be between $100k-$200k and take 6-9 months for preparation, review and approval. The Reg A+ as it’s called in the industry, closely resembles the process for a full on IPO and listing to a national trading board such as the NYSE or NASDAQ.
The second exemption that was created is the Regulation Crowdfunding or Reg CF exemption. This exemption allows companies to raise debt or equity from the general public. The same rules apply as above, accredited and unaccredited investors may invest from anywhere in the world. The key difference being companies may only raise up to $1.07 million in a 12 month period using this exemption.
There are considerably less disclosures and reviews needed for a Reg CF offer. Only a CPA review is needed and SEC review and approval can be obtained within a week. Estimated costs to launch and run a successful Reg CF offer range from $10,000-$100,000.
Both exemptions offer a great way to efficiently reach the general public to raise funding for business. With a well executed marketing plan, great success can be achieved in a relatively short period of time. The rise and success of crowdfunding over the past few years has only amplified as the industry is able to learn and grow. Crowdfunding site CrowdStreet, focuses on real estate crowdfunding and has seen offers raise $10 million in 3 minutes!
What are you waiting for? We have the necessary forms to complete and send to the SEC for those review and approval. We have the marketing and business plan done for you and ready to go. We have contacts with CPA’s that know what you need to get your offer approved. We also have an active and engaged audience eager to take a look at your investment opportunity. We walk through the steps of either exemption, however we can show you how to get your offer up and running in now time with SEC compliance for Reg CF offers and turn it into an automated capital raising machine. And since we receive a fee for every dollar we raise, we won’t stop until you tell us when!
