A Canadian Perspective on the New U.S. Regulation A Exemption

On December 18, 2013, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published for comment new rules for Regulation A (Reg. A+)  Regulation A was originally implemented in 1933.  It exempts limited issuances of securities from registration under the United States Securities Act of 1933 (1933 Act) and its prospectus and registration statement requirements.

Equity CrowdFunding: Is it Safe or Dangerous for Small Investors?

By Matt Morse CFB ‘s guest editor,  founder and CEO of CrowdLever.com, Equity crowdfunding, or microfinancing, has become the talk of the town in 2013. What does it mean, exactly? Instead of getting a T-shirt for your contribution to a crowdfunding campaign, you can actually get a stake in the business in which you’re investing.

angel

By Julie Keck,Crowdfunding campaigns, when run well, can seem effortless, almost magical, if you’re watching from afar. Seeing the money and backers pile up, especially in the last phase of a campaign, can be breathtaking, when everyone is hugging and high-fiving. However, crowdfunding is not a walk in the park. Unless that park is covered with broken glass. And a lion ate your shoes at the entrance gate. And he is now chasing you. There is anxiety, especially during that famous mid-campaign plateau.
