JOBS Act of 2012

Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act of 2012 provides for securities based crowdfunding with the intention of making it easier for small businesses and startups to raise funds and for individuals to become investors.  The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released its proposed rules governing crowdfunding, “Regulation Crowdfunding,” in  October of this year and will be taking comments through February 3, 2014.
