State-Level Equity Crowdfunding Slideshow

State-Level Equity Crowdfunding

There was an article in the New York Times yesterday on state-level equity crowdfunding. Overall, I think the article was negative on state efforts to put in place crowdfunding laws. Maybe I am being unfair to the author (@StevenDavidoff). I would love it if he commented on this blog post.

I think this is the money quote:

“For good or bad, the states don’t seem to care as much about the fraud issue.”

I don’t think this is true. I know it is not true at all in Washington State. I think we have put in place a really good law here. A better than the law federal law for sure. And one that will not be easily used by fraudsters.

Embedded below is a slide deck I did some time ago on the topic. I still think it is timely.
