Funding Gets Easier For Small Businesses

For 80 years startups trying to raise money in return for equity (stocks) in their companies could not do so publicly.  They were restricted to finding investors only through word of mouth.   A new SEC rule (Rule 144) has given startups the opportunity to raise money publicly. 

This means that they could use traditional and online media to conduct mass newsletters/email, establish a public profile on a startup investment platform, display on a website that they are startup fundraising, use social media, create public videos, etc.

Even though the JOBS Act made easier for startups to get funding, investing in startups is still restricted to people considered by the SEC to be accredited investors.  These investors must have net worth of more than $1 million, excluding the value of a primary residence, or an individual income that exceeds $200,000 for the last two years. Accredited investors can also include individuals whose joint net worth with a spouse exceeds $300,000 for the last two years.
