Regulation D Crowd Funding
Regulation D Crowd Funding is the act of raising equity and debt-capital on the internet by private US and foreign companies under the amended exemption provided by Rule 506 of Regulation D under the U.S. Securities Act. Rule 506 of Regulation D was amended by the JOBS Act to allow for companies to raise money from investors using publicity and other media like the internet. However all investors under Rule 506 Crowd Funding offerings are required to be Accredited Investors. Please note that investors in a Rule 506 Crowd Funding offerings will count toward the new higher 2,000 investor registration threshold established under the amended Rule12 (g) under U.S. Exchange Act of 1934.
