Danger or Opportunity?
Impact of New SEC Rules for Funding Solicitation
An MIT Enterprise Forum Venture Lab Program
New SEC rules take effect on September 23, 2013 that lift the ban on “general solicitation” for exempt stock offerings, which means that an entrepreneur raising angel financing may now use public advertising to attract accredited investors. This change in the law opens up whole new opportunities for funding your company. But be careful! There are some significant gotchas with these new rules that can land a startup in trouble with the SEC. Come hear a panel of experts discuss the implications of these changes, and how they might affect the climate for raising early stage capital.
