New Crowdfunding Rules Change the World--for Good!

How would you like $5 million for your social enterprise?

The SEC this week raised the limits on equity crowdfunding to $5 million. This is huge.

The aggregate limit last was was just $1,070,000. The limits on accredited investors have been completely removed! So angel investors and venture funds can invest as much as they want right along with your other individual investors who may only put in $100.

Ordinary individual investors can also now invest more with limits tied to the greater of income or net worth rather than the lesser, meaning everyone you know can invest something--most can invest thousands of dollars legally.

There are lots of great resources available to help. If you have questions, put them in the comments and I'll answer those I can and I'll tag my expert friends to answer the ones I can't!

Let's rock this for good!!!
