CFO answers your questions about crowdfunding, general solicitation and the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act.
This is monumental for the private equity landscape. I for one am excited for what equity crowdfuding will provide in terms of capital creation for this country.
It will be interesting to see which of the proposed rules will stick once the dust has settled. There are some regulations in the proposals that could potentially be the equivalent of taking one step forward and two steps backward. Additional regulations on the intermediaries facilitating the offerings of securities could cripple the industry with bureaucracy before it even gets going.
Similar to what we saw once Title II regulations were passed, I think that private, third-party solutions from the likes of CrowdCheck, Crowdentials, etc. will be the answer to quell the pressure of government regulation, allowing the participants of this industry to focus on what they do best – make money.
