Regulation Crowdfunding header

Regulation Crowdfunding enables eligible companies to offer and sell securities through crowdfunding. The rules:

  • require all transactions under Regulation Crowdfunding to take place online through an SEC-registered intermediary, either a broker-dealer or a funding portal
  • permit a company to raise a maximum aggregate amount of $1,070,000 through crowdfunding offerings in a 12-month period
  • limit the amount individual investors can invest across all crowdfunding offerings in a 12-month period and
  • require disclosure of information in filings with the Commission and to investors and the intermediary facilitating the offering

Securities purchased in a crowdfunding transaction generally cannot be resold for one year. Regulation Crowdfunding offerings are subject to "bad actor" disqualification provisions.
