The Evolution of Private Investing

Until recent years, investing in private company securities was confined to wealthy investors, known as accredited investors. The Jumpstart Our Business Act of 2012 expanded and democratized regulations surrounding investments in private securities. The JOBS Act’s crowdfunding offering, Regulation Crowdfunding, opened new avenues for non-accredited investors to support startups and small businesses.

Prior to the JOBS Act, private businesses could only crowdfund via reward-based contributions and donations. These tools can still help companies raise capital for innovation and growth, but they do not benefit donors. With Regulation Crowdfunding, a company can now raise necessary funds while offering advocates an actual investment in a business represented as equity, debt, or both. For additional information, please contact Netshares.
