Crowdfunding: What's Legal and When [Live Chat]
Crowdfunding

As a result of this week's live chat, the SRO working group learned that there is some confusion around whether and when platforms can charge a fee for facilitating crowdfunding. We invite you to join members of CFIRA's leadership group and our securities attorney's for next week's live chat to clarify this issue.

Specifically, platforms have the following abilities:

• Until July 4, 2012, platforms may not facilitate any form of "solicitation" or advertising of raises;

• From July 4, 2012 until January, 2013, platforms may only facilitate "Regulation D" offerings, must limit all offerings to accredited investors, and cannot charge a fee for that facilitation;

• After January, 2013, platforms may offer crowdfunding offerings (not Regulation D offerings), and may charge a fee to facilitate those offerings.

We will discuss this in more detail to answer questions you may have, and welcome you to our next Live Chat at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST on 16 April 2012.

Chat with the Experts on How Crowdfunding in the U.S. Will Take Shape
Crowdfunding

As President Obama is expected to sign the JOBS Act into law at 2pm EST on April 5, 2012, a leadership group consisting of equity and debt crowdfunding platforms and industry experts including legal, securities and SEC experts, have mobilized to explore the development of a self-regulatory framework for the crowdfunding industry. The JOBS Act requires that all equity and debt crowdfunding platforms be a member of a national securities association. This leadership group will explore the various paths to meet that requirement in ways that protect investors and support a vibrant industry.

Chat live on Crowdsourcing.org with representatives from this group on Monday, April 9th.
