New crowdfunding regulations took effect in June with the goal of bringing crowdfunding to the world of startup investing. But the reality of the Regulation A+ rules of Title IV of the 2012 JOBS Act may not fit the ideal, as soliciting investments will still require a substantial investment on the part of business startups to file the appropriate paperwork with the SEC. Crowdfunding works best when an appeal is made to as large a group of potential investors as possible, and the Regulation A+ rules aim to enable anyone to participate in startup investing. Prior to the SEC implementing Reg A+, only accredited investors could participate. On this episode of Big Money Real Estate, Ilyce interviews journalist Salvador Rodriguez to get a better understanding of the Regulation A+ changes and how they might impact real estate investing. Rodriguez is the Silicon Valley correspondent for the International Business Times and has written about Regulation A+’s potential impact on the tech startup space. So tune in to find out whether the Regulation A+ rules will be the vehicle that finally brings crowdfunding to business startup investing.
