What is security crowdfunding?

Last Updated: Mar 11, 2019 09:24AM CDT

Security crowdfunding is the name given to the process whereby people (the crowd) invest in a company in exchange for securities.

It is a new capital raising and investing method. Securities crowdfunding (Reg CF) enables startups and small businesses to raise up to 1.07 million capital/year from non-accredited and accredited investors, through funding portals. Non-accredited investors are considered all individuals with an income lower than $200 K/year.

In the US to be considered an accredited investor, one must have a net worth of at least one million US dollars, excluding the value of one's primary residence, or have income at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 combined income if married) and have the expectation to make the same amount this year.


Starting May, 16 2016 when the Regulation Crowdfunding became active, non-accredited investors can be security holders.
