NEW YORK, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, companies will begin selling equity stakes to non-accredited investors via Title III of The JOBS Act. Potentially thousands of companies will sell shares to millions of new investors, and these new shareholders will want to be kept abreast of the material developments of these companies.
To meet the communications needs of these new public-like companies, KCSA Strategic Communications has created CrowdFund Communications (CFC) – a platform designed to meet the needs of companies that equity crowdfund. CFC will offer these companies a mix of consulting services, a mobile investor relations app, quarterly communications content (press release, shareholder letter) and other services.
"Equity crowdfunding will help thousands of companies to access growth capital, enabling them to achieve their full potential. By selling shares to non-accredited investors, these companies will have a responsibility to regularly update their investors. While these are not New York Stock Exchange-listed companies, communicating like a large public company can be accomplished easily," said Jeffrey Goldberger, Managing Partner, KCSA Strategic Communications. "We always counsel our clients to communicate like the companies that they aspire to be, and via CrowdFund Communications, KCSA is empowering these companies to communicate like Disney, Exxon and other large public companies – but for a fraction of the cost."
KCSA has been providing public and investor relations services since 1969 and has worked with pre-revenue start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. The New York-based strategic communications firm is noted for its work with entrepreneurial companies in the technology, financial and professional services, biotech, life sciences and energy sectors.
"KCSA's clients look to us as strategic partners who leverage communications tactics to help them achieve their business objectives. We partner with our clients and are invested in their success," Goldberger added. "We know that companies leveraging equity crowdfunding are activating a passionate fan-vestor base that shows loyalty via investing dollars. Keeping these passionate shareholders updated and activated is the main goal of our CrowdFund Communications offering."
Goldberger concluded, "We believe in the power of equity crowdfunding and know that The JOBS Act will empower thousands of companies to create millions of jobs. By giving these companies access to a low-cost communications offering based on investor relations best practices, these companies will be empowered to effectively communicate like their larger, publicly-traded brethren."
KCSA's CFC offering includes:
- Monthly investor communications consulting
