The SEC has proposed rules to implement Crowdfunding as mandated by the JOBS Act.  The proposals will permit Crowdfunding up to $1 million per 12-month period exclusively through a single Crowdfunding intermediary.  The proposals clarify and augment the JOBS Act Crowdfunding provisions in several key respects.

During this webinar, our attorneys will provide a comprehensive overview of the SEC’s Crowdfunding rules. Specifically, we will discuss:

  • Funding and Investment Limits
  • Excluded Issuers
  • The contents of a Crowdfunding Offering Statement
  • Intermediary Responsibilities and Requirements
  • The Safe Harbor and Investment Advice
  • Registration as a Funding Portal - Form “BD Light”
  • Bank Secrecy Act and AML Rules
  • Fraud Prevention and Detection

This webinar is intended for development-stage companies looking to raise money through Crowdfunding and broker-dealers or third party service providers interested in becoming Crowdfunding intermediaries.
