Crowd Investing for Startups

The Direct Public Offering – The Original Securities-Based Crowdfunding Model | Cutting Edge Capital Excitement about the new crowdfunding securities exemption created under the JOBS Act continues to build despite the long wait for the SEC and FINRA to promulgate the rules that are necessary for the new law to go into effect. While the details of the new exemption remain largely unknown, we all hope that it will provide another viable way for companies to offer and sell securities publicly to both accredited and non-accredited investors and thus increase the flow of capital to small businesses and startups around the country. Unfortunately, however, it may be some time before companies can legally use this new exemption to raise capital from the crowd. What many people may not know is that the new crowdfunding exemption is not the only way, nor perhaps the best way, to legally raise investment capital from the crowd.

Get Rich Slowly: Investment Planning Tips for Entrepreneurs Many would claim that finding and riding the investment waves is the best method for successfully growing a braggable nest-egg.

Remember, it’s those financial experts that promise vast returns, because they claim to understand the markets so much better than us average folk. This so often, can get us into trouble. The fact is, everybody wants to get rich, but nobody wants to get rich slowly. 1. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that investing earlier is usually better. If you invested $100 every year starting 29 years ago at an interest rate of 8%, compounding annually, you would have $12,160. Assets seem to behave differently when you have more of them. In most cases, they adhere to the multiplying effect of dollars producing more dollars through interest. 2. 3. Connect with Deal Capital on Twitter.

Social Crowdfunding Platform Rally.org Expands To Europe With New Berlin Incubator And Donations In Euros, With Pounds Coming Soon Rally.org, the U.S.-based crowdfunding platform designed for socially-minded causes, is taking its mission to Europe. Today, the startup is opening an incubator in Berlin, its first outside of the U.S., and on a limited beta will start to process donations made on its proprietary payment platform in euros, with the intention of adding British pounds and other currencies in the very near future. Rally.org — which, commendably, used its own platform to raise $7.9 million from the likes of Relay Ventures, Mike Maples of Floodgate Fund, Reid Hoffman of Greylock Partners, Kevin Rose of Google Ventures, Craig Shapiro of Collaborative Fund, Michael Birch of Bebo, Tim Ferriss and Eric Ries — recently passed 3 million people contributing to 23,000 campaigns on its platform, and the idea is to tap into more local social causes and fundraising activities in this part of the world to grow that base even more.
