The SEC has adopted Regulation Crowdfunding to permit companies to raise up to $1 million in a 12-month period over the Internet using a crowdfunding exchange. These long-awaited crowdfunding rules were mandated by Title III of the JOBS Act of 2012 and adopted on October 30, 2015.

In this webinar, we will review the final rules and discuss the advantages and limitations of crowdfunding.

This webinar will be the first in a series of crowdfunding webinars featuring speakers from top crowdfunding portals and Ballard Spahr attorneys.

As part of this webinar, we will also take your questions in advance. Please let us know what questions you would like our panel to answer by typing your questions into the boxes at the bottom of the registration form. We encourage you to submit up to three questions and will ensure that your anonymity is preserved. 


  • Capital-raising procedures and investment limitations
  • Disclosure requirements by issuers
  • Investor eligibility requirements
  • Requirements for crowdfunding portals
  • …and more
