Small Business is our Business

Crowdfunding is  a means to solicitate contributions from investors through the Internet to raise capital.   The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act of 2012 eliminates numerous regulatory restrictions for small companies to raise money.  These companies can now raise  up to $1 million from investors through the Internet.  These are a few crowdfunding platforms where potential investors can search for possible investments—

*Kickstarter

*Crowdtilt

*Crowdfunder

*AngelList

*WeFunder

*Indiegogo

*MicroVentures

*SecondMarket

As this market expands, so will new crowdfunding sites .  As with any investment, buyer beware.   If used honestly, crowdfunding can be the seed and growth financing for future entrepreneurs and start-ups.

    Remember, users can already raise crowd funds through sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. The equity crowdfunding sites are waiting for the SEC to make their regulations based on the crowdfunding provisions of the Jobs Act. The SEC regulations will try to limit fraud as much as possible; however, many in the fledgling industry have resigned themselves to the fact that fraud will happen. Most agree that the rewards outweigh the risks!

    We are working on a site that allows users to compare crowdfunding investment offerings across crowdfunding portals. Check out our launch page! http://www.crowdvetfund.com
