Crowdfund Investing: A Zero-Cost Initiative to Create Jobs
Crowdfunding

There is a solution to the nation’s poor growth and anemic state of job creation. However, it requires updating Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations regarding general solicitation and accreditation so average Americans can choose to invest in local small businesses. It is called Crowdfund Investing (CFI) — a common sense idea that has attracted the interest and support of President Barack Obama. Republican House member Patrick McHenry (NC) recently introduced H.R. 2930, the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act, legislation that aligns with the general framework supported by the President. So here we have a “common ground” idea where both sides of the political aisle agree on many key details. There is no excuse to move slowly with crowdfund investing as it will help thousands of small businesses and add fuel to our gasping economy.

Nascent entrepreneurs and growth-oriented firms continue to have a difficult time finding capital to expand, innovate and grow. Of course, our nation has counted on the job-creating prowess of small businesses to lead us out of difficult economic periods. This time around, unfortunately, the uncertainties have become too great. New start-ups, which have fueled job creation after previous recessions, have not taken root at the same pace as in the past. Weak demand, tight capital and credit markets, and policy uncertainties continue to erode confidence. The CFI solution is one leg of the stool that will help entrepreneurs identify new sources of capital, thus providing optimism and much needed resources for investment and growth.

Crowdfund Investing Experts Complete Framework for Equity-based Crowdfunding
Answers to the arguments against making crowdfund investing legal [Part 1]

There are two sides to every story. The same can be said for those who support and those who are against Crowdfunding. The proponents tend to be entrepreneurs, innovators, and America’s jobs engine. They are the ones advocating in favor of allowing entrepreneurs to raise a limited amount of capital from their friends, family & community. They are a fragmented group by nature, heads in the sand, focused on their businesses without deep pockets or the backing of special interests. The major opponents to crowdfunding are the SEC, FINRA and NASAA. They are government bureaucratic agencies with a vested interest in the current system, widespread oversight and deep pockets. Their job is to protect and regulate the large, often complex, public markets. However they tend to do so at the expense of small businesses. Overly bureaucratic rules, we see time and again, have a trickle-down effect on small businesses that hamper growth.

Find below a summary of the arguments for and against Crowdfund Investing.
