    How Regulation A+ Works with Equity Crowdfunding

    As of March 2015, the SEC has made it possible for anyone to participate in approved equity crowdfunding offerings, furthering the goals set out by the JOBS Act in 2012.

    Regulation A+ is being celebrated as the first time in 80 years that the public can invest in equity offerings, a privilege which used to be exclusive to high net worth individuals (less than 1% of the US population).

    High net worth individuals are generally those who have over $1 million in assets excluding their primary residence or or have an income of at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 with a spouse).

    In theory, the benefits of Title III are plentiful:

    1. Convenience—Crowdfunding platforms make it significantly easier to set up and manage a funding process.

    2. Concept validation—Closing a successful equity crowdfunding round not only proves interest in a product or service, but shows that people are willing to spend money on it.

    3. Casting a wider net—A crowdfunding process can drive affinity support, pre-orders, and solicit investors all at the same time, capturing different types of support simultaneously.

    4. Reduced risk—Entrepreneurs can 'test the waters’ without a heavy investment to validate a sustainable market.

    5. Real-time feedback—There is a unique ability to build a loyal community of followers by engaging them and listening to their feedback.

    6. New marketing channel—Crowdfunding is marketing, and thus a great way to spread brand awareness and attract new customers.

    7. Lower implementation costs—The costs of reaching an audience to raise capital can be far less than an IPO or other traditional methods – in terms of both time and money.
