It’s been four years since the JOBS Act was signed and little by little, the SEC has opened up crowdfunding to more investors. Today, non-accredited investors can start investing a minimum of $2,000 a year or more investing in small companies in exchange for a stake in the business (equity funding). For our clients, this means being able to include equity funding in their self-directed retirement plans even if they had not previously qualified as an accredited investor. The startups and small businesses can raise up to $1M a year through crowdfunding. Read all about it, and about some young entrepreneurs who raised capital in this way, in this article in the New York Times. For more details on crowdfunding, download our free white paper about it.
