Big news! In 2016 you’ll be able to invest in startups and small businesses.
After 3.5 years of delays and rule making the SEC has voted yes on new regulations that allow business to raise money from everyone, not just the wealthy. If you’ve been following along, this is Title III of the JOBS Act (aka the CROWDFUND part of the law).
The new regulations will take effect in early May 2016. We’re still waiting on the final regulations to be published by the SEC.
