The Original Crowdfunding Renegade

The JOBS Act represents a fundamental change in the way Businesses obtain financing for the life they want. Many people previously left out of the market will now be able to obtain financing for their dreams like never before.

The JOBS Act recognizes that recent changes in technology have necessitated an update to the securities laws and is the first major revision of Securities Laws in 80 years.

What You'll Learn

In a recent survey of would be startups and established startups about the greatest barriers to starting a business raising money topped the list.

At any given time there is an estimated 27 million business that are in need of capital. The US Small Business administration states that the number one reason over 51% of all business go out of business is due to lack of capital.
