On December 10 MBBP Corporate Attorney Joseph Martinez will be speaking at a Boston Bar Association seminar titled SEC’s Proposed Rules for Crowdfunding. In October the SEC proposed rules to implement Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act which introduced a new “crowdfunding” exemption from registration of securities. The rules, if finalized, would make it possible for most privately-held companies to raise capital by selling securities to the public without registering with the SEC. In this program, Joe will review some of the key provisions in the proposed rules and discuss the challenges they pose for crowdfunding.
