About This Course

The laws governing fundraising over the Internet are changing all the time, and new SEC rules recently took effect. On October 30 2015, the SEC issued final regulations to implement Title III of the JOBS Act. Regulation CF will permit a person or company to offer securities over the Internet for up to $1 million in a 12 month period. Regulation CF now joins two prior regulations implementing the JOBS Act: the regulations permitting Internet equity offerings only to accredited investors (a new Rule 506(c), and regulations amending Regulation A to permit equity offerings of up to $20 million (a "Tier 1 offering") or up to $50 million (a "Tier 2 offering"). These new rules make it easier for companies to raise capital online. But there are literally hundreds of pages new information. How to make sense of it all? Thomas Selz, chairman of the IP Finance Group at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, highlights what you need to know.

Topics include:

  • An overview of crowdfunding
  • "Donation" model versus "Investment" model — pros and cons
  • A rundown of the new SEC rules
  • What to do before a fund raise — financials, IP, key agreements, and offering materials
  • Differentiating between large and small investors
  • Testing the market before you file
  • Pricing and advertising your offer
  • Dealing with "finders" or "referrers"
  • Duties owed to investors
