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.

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.

A US model for Equity Based Crowdfunding
Crowdfunding

The stock market-crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed really messed it up for crowdfunding, imposing restrictions that 82 years later would make it really difficult to use the social network for raising money for start-ups. So,  we are now all connected via social networks – we like the idea of funding our favorite causes and we are happy to freely donate some of our money without an expected return – we also feel good about helping to fund a small business entrepreneur buy a tractor and retire the mules, all we expect is a reasonable rate of interest. We see another good business idea and for a small investment we get a cut of the revenue generated. But, why can’t we invest in a start-up venture and get a piece of the action!
