|Some changes to Equity Crowding coming in march:|
Federal Register :: Facilitating Capital Formation and Expanding Investment Opportunities by Improving Access to Capital in Private Markets
This means that beginning in March, companies can raise up to $5M via Regulation Crowdfunding and $75M via Regulation A+. These changes have big ramifications for StartEngine and equity crowdfunding as a whole. We hope that the higher maximum raise amounts will encourage more mature businesses to use equity crowdfunding for their funding needs.
And for investors, it means that the annual limits you can invest will also increase. Beginning in March, accredited investors will not have investment limits, and non-accredited investors will use the greater of their annual income or net worth when calculating their investment limits (today, this figure is calculated by the lesser of those two amounts).
