General Solicitation and Startups Presentation

If you are a founder of a startup, you may be excited about the proposed new changes to the SEC general solicitation rules that were part of the JOBS Act for all accredited offerings under Rule 506. Don’t worry, it’s okay to be excited, I am too. But there is a whole lot you need to know before you do anything in regards to these proposed rules, which are not final yet.

So join me and a group of fellow founders for a session where we’ll discuss SEC Rule 506, the JOBS Act changes, what they will mean when they become effective, and how the changes may affect your world.

Topics

This presentation and conversation is open to the public, but is intended for people in the throes of seeking angel funding for development of a new product or idea (or are considering that path).

  1. The current law.
  2. The language of the proposed new rules and what they mean.
  3. How these new rules will apply; their practical impact.
  4. The regulations and restrictions that will remain after the changes finally become effective.

Best of all, we will have a question and answer period that allows you to clarify details to help you understand the rules. Afterward, feel free hang out and rub shoulders with other founders and swap some ideas.

    These changes to Rule 506 are irrelevant if you are already soliciting foreign investors, especially if you created your startup as a foreign company and are soliciting foreign investors. The barriers to startup capital formation in the United States are not just 78-years-out-of-date, they are meaningless in a global economy with 6.5 billion people living, working, and forming capital entirely outside the reach of United States Federal Law.

    We have created a social networking-based foreign capital general solicitation and Affiliate advertising system. We call it Meme Capital. There’s no need to change the rules, or wait for any Federal agency or legislators to stop interfering with common sense. Foreign direct investment is available now. See:
