The JOBS Act, effective in January 2013, allows for equity crowdfunding of startups from non-accredited
investors. However, in order for entrepreneurs to raise capital legally, they must adhere to the in-depth
compliance requirements of the JOBS Act.
CEO of CrowdFundingRoadmap and Executive Director of Crowdfunding Bootcamp, Ruth E. Hedges
explains the importance of this event for funding portals and entrepreneurs alike:
"In order for equity crowdfunding to work, there must be a pipeline of entrepreneurs compliant with the laws
under the JOBS Act by early 2013. Those who wait until January 2013 to establish compliance will not only
delay their own business endeavors, but impede the efforts of compliant funding portals."
Always a step ahead, Bryant remains up-to-date with the requirements as stipulated in the JOBS Act to
ensure StartupValley’s success.
"StartupValley is taking the necessary measures to ensure that our funding portal will abide by all the rules
and regulations being established by the SEC. We have been approved and received our Crowdfunding
Portal Accreditation by CrowdSourcing.org."
Bryant is also a member of the Crowdfunding Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA) and a founding
board member of the Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA).
