Summary of Title III

On October 23rd the SEC voted to propose rules under Title III of the JOBS Act. These rules will create an exemption under current securities laws to allow crowdfunding portals, like EquityNet, to offer and sell securities online. This will simplify fundraising for small businesses and startups by allowing them to raise capital from an enormous pool of investors. It will also provide a wide range of investment opportunities for both accredited and non-accredited investors. The proposed rules are currently undergoing a 90-day public comment period.
