How Crowdfunding and the JOBS Act Got Started, Told by the Guy Behind the Big Idea
Crowdfunding

In this exclusive series on Crowdsourcing.org, he recalls those early days and the efforts that have since begun to blossom in the form of the JOBS Act. In the second half of the series, he also gives us an inside look at the fanatical devotion of some of crowdfunding's true believers.

From Idea to Law: A JOBS Act Discussion with Startup Exemption’s Sherwood Neiss (Part 1)
Crowdfunding

This past Thursday, President Obama signed the JOBS Act, legalizing crowdfund investing in the United States. Although numerous people influenced the legislative process surrounding crowdfunding and JOBS Act, Sherwood Neiss and his fellow Startup Exemption co-founders were central figures in that process. The bill would not have passed — in fact, would not even exist — if not for the tireless efforts of these three individuals over the last 15 months. Neiss and his partners crafted the original crowdfund investing framework (which remains largely unchanged in the final JOBS Act), testified at two Congressional hearings surrounding access to capital for entrepreneurs, and lobbied vigorously on Capitol Hill for the ideal implementation and passage of a crowdfund investing bill. Eric Blattberg of Crowdsourcing.org recently spoke with Sherwood Neiss about all things JOBS Act: its conceptualization, the legislative process, its ultimate passage, its benefits and potential drawbacks, its media reception and much more.

The Dangers of Crowdfunding: A JOBS Act Discussion with Jeffrey Rubin
Crowdfunding

Prominent figures in the crowdfunding industry continue to lavish praise on the JOBS Act, which President Obama signed into law on April 5, but the legislation is not without its detractors. One notable critic of the Act is securities lawyer Jeffrey Rubin. A partner at international law firm Hogan Lovells, Rubin is chair of the federal regulation of securities committee for the business law section of the American Bar Association. Rubin is most concerned about the crowdfunding exemption embedded in the Act, which will legalize crowdfund investing in the United States when it goes into effect in early 2013. Below, Rubin and I discuss the potential perils of crowdfund investing and the JOBS Act.

Capital Formation vs. Investor Protections: A JOBS Act Discussion with Jeffrey Rubin

Earlier this week, we posted the first part of our JOBS Act discussion with securities lawyer Jeffrey Rubin. A partner at international law firm Hogan Lovells and a nuanced critic of the JOBS Act, Rubin is chair of the federal regulation of securities committee for the business law section of the American Bar Association. In this second part of our discussion, Rubin touches upon some of the JOBS Act's non-crowdfunding components, notably the introduction of the "emerging growth company." Toward the end, however, we return to crowdfunding as Rubin ruminates on the Act's overall effects.
