On July 10, 2013, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission adopted new rules that repeal the ban on general solicitation for many private offerings of securities. This will dramatically expand the scope of permitted fundraising activities for many types of investment funds, start-ups and operating companies. It will also make the Internet an integral part of many fundraising efforts. However, there are limitations and trade-offs, and a host of open questions. This presentation will be of interest to: venture capital and other investment fund managers, entrepreneurs seeking start-up capital, managers of private or public operating companies, and operators or web-based company/investor matching services.
