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.

Don't Fear the Crowdfunding Bogeyman
Crowdfunding

Up until this week, I was still telling friends and family about pending legislation to legalize crowdfunding for equity in the U.S. and describing it as "a very important bill that you've probably heard nothing about." That all changed this week as the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act that contains the means to legalize crowdfunding took centerstage and, along the way, became bogged down by what I can only generously refer to as typical inside the beltway bumbling.
