We are pleased to celebrate (and critique) the launch of Regulation Crowdfunding! Please attend this evening of networking and information sharing regarding the new Federal Regulation Crowdfunding Exemption debuting on May 16th. An update regarding MNvest will also be shared (we are close, very very close).
When: Monday, May 16th from 6-8pm
MNvest.org is a 501(c)(4) organization created to promote investment crowdfunding in Minnesota. MNvest aims to provide wider, cheaper, and faster access to funding for companies and entrepreneurs. Previously, Minnesota businesses had been bound by stiffly regulated securities laws limiting who can learn about a company’s fundraising efforts, essentially narrowing the field to accredited investors, or approximately 3% of the population. MNvest will encourage free enterprise, expand small businesses, create jobs and increase the tax base. The new legislation allows growing businesses to raise capital with support from the community in order to succeed. Finally, any Minnesotan can become an investor and learn about opportunities online via registered MNvest portals.
