 New Funding Source Available for USA Projects
Thousands of entrepreneurs and others have jumped on the "crowdfunding" bandwagon unleashed by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, signed into law by President Obama in April 2012.
Quite simply, it allows small companies to sell unregistered shares to many more early stage shareholders via the internet. As well, it allows for delay and possible avoidance of other compliance issues.
A great example of a typical project is currently listed on trendsetting website Kickstarter.com. (Disclaimer: this company is one of our clients.)
Although a very recent phenomenon, a good overview can be found in these articles in the following popular business magazine websites (click each to access): Economist, Inc., Forbes and Entrepreneur.
It's still too early to know if this is a great new idea or an invitation to chaotic fraud. But in the meantime, there's gold in them thar webpages.
