Reg CF

Reg CF crowdfunding investment offerings are true “crowdfunding”, in the sense that anyone can invest in them, and all of the advertising and notifications about them must happen on the internet. The Reg CF investment minimums can be quite small (sometimes $50 or less), and their intent under Title III of the 2012 JOBS Act was clearly to “democratize” raising capital, especially for small businesses. The maximum amount that can be raised by a company under Title III is $1M, though it’s possible to do a “parallel” funding using Title II, which has no maximum.
