On May 16, 2016, the JOBS Act "Crowdfunding" law came into effect. But what the government calls "Crowdfunding" is a narrow definition of what we generally refer to as crowdfunding. 

Our discussion covers the various types of crowdfunding rules and more specifically, the general solicitation rules EB-5 issuers need be to aware of to raise money for their private placement offering.

General definition of crowdfunding includes: 

  • Title II - Reg D, Rule 506
  • Tilte III - "Crowdfunding"
  • Title IV - Regulation A

EB-5 issuers are generally looking at Rule 506(c), which permits general solicitation and advertising of private placements. The key requirement of Reg D - 506(c) is to verify that all investors are accredited. 

What's involved in managing concurrent 506(c) and Reg S offerings? 

What is the role of the broker-dealer in managing a successful Reg D - 506(c) offering?
