CHICAGO, Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Crowdsourcefunded.com, a leading Funding Portal, announces its launch as one of the first fully operating funding portals with live Private Company investment opportunities offered under the Jumpstart Our Business Startups ("JOBS") Act.
"This change in the law arguably represents the greatest wealth creation opportunity for individuals in a generation," said Tim Hogan, President of Crowdsourcefunded.com.
Throughout U.S. history, two factors have combined to make the United States the economic power that it is today: individual ingenuity and investment capital. To date, investment capital has been restricted, by law, to Venture Capitalists, Angel Investor Groups, Institutional Investors and Accredited Individual Investors.
"As required by the JOBS Act and our rule, a registered broker or funding portal serves as an important gatekeeper between those seeking capital and investors," Said Mary Jo White, Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
Every individual now has the legal right to invest in the financial success of the companies that shape our economic future. A Private Company's success and potential returns can be substantial and often described in terms of expected multiples of 1 – 10 times the original amount invested. However, Regulators want individuals to know that Private Company investing is risky and an individual could lose their entire investment. The new law has empowered individuals to participate and determine their own risk and return expectation for Private Company investments.
"Every individual should learn, understand and take full advantage of their legal right to make investments in Private Companies. As a gatekeeper Crowdsourcefunded.com helps with resources that will inform and educate individuals," Says Tim Hogan.
The free resources made available by Crowdsourcefunded.com will inform and educate you about Private Company Investing as well as the mechanism that the SEC chose for individuals to invest, specifically Crowdfunding. Individuals can obtain Background Information on Crowdfunding, sign up for a Crowdfunding 101 course administered by email and can register to gain access to Investor Education which the SEC requires Registered Funding Portals like Crowdsourcefunded.com to provide to individuals before they can invest in current Offerings.
Crowdsourcefunded.com offers Private Company investment opportunities to individuals under Title III of the JOBS Act. The Company is one of the first fully operating funding portals registered with the SEC and is a member of FINRA.
