Although the legislation that made investment crowdfunding available to North Carolina businesses passed in 2016, there have been a number of important factors that have kept this option from becoming a common consideration for any business owner’s funding strategy. In fact, most people still think of crowdfunding as ‘rewards-based’ or ‘pledge-based’ crowdfunding like what is made available through platforms like Indiegogo, GoFundMe, and Kickstarter. Investment crowdfunding, on the other hand, serves an entirely different purpose.
We recently came across a great article published on Forbes that nicely summarizes what business owners need to know about investment crowdfunding as a funding option for their businesses. There are some differences between federal regulations cited in this article, but we’ve got you covered with the specifics of what is available to North Carolina business owners here. Enjoy.
