All About Regulation A Crowdfunding

At CrowdEngine we pride ourselves on understanding our clients’ needs, the regulations, and helping our clients succeed in the crowdfunding and Fintech industry. If you’re not familiar with the new crowdfunding rules and you want to get involved, it’s important to learn all you can about the rules.

Whether you’re a venture capital firm, angel group, startup, or real estate professional, you’ll always need a lawyer who can sign-off on everything, but as a smart entrepreneur you should also be informed about all your choices, and what the rules really say.

This amendment to Reg A, now commonly referred to as “Reg A+” helped to create additional flexibility in the offering process for issuers, so we thought we would share a great resource on the final Regulation A Rules (
