According to the JOBS Act of 2012, the SEC has until approximately Jan 1, 2013 to issue regulations governing investment crowdfunding.  It must also register crowdfunding portals and approve self-regulatory organization (SRO) rules governing those portals.

We are a collection of SEC attorneys and crowdfunding portals and venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, seeking to influence the regulatory authorities for the betterment of crowdfunding.

Currently the SEC is inviting the expression of views on the regulations it will propose, and we are seeking to help the SEC Staff in their work on their regulations with a primary goal of protecting investors while not over-regulating the nascent market.

We welcome your input.  If you are a voting member and wish to work on this committee, or have a comment or question, please use the below form and we will be in touch shortly.  Thank you!
