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.

Answers to the arguments against making crowdfund investing legal [Part 1]
Crowdfunding

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.

Opinion: SEC Uses JOBS Act to Set Up New Roadblocks to Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding

Rather than lifting the ban on general solicitation in order to make it possible for more people to invest in American startups, the SEC proposed rules that would establish various different classes of investors, each perhaps with its own regulations. Needless to say, this move could make it more rather than less complicated for people to invest in startups, erecting new roadblocks rather than clearing away old ones.
