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 (@). 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.
I have been traveling around talking about crowdfunding. Yesterday I was in the Tri-Cities with my partner Andrew Schultheis. We had a good crowd, and it was fun. I’ve embedded our slides below.
I’ve started a public, editable HackPad on the Washington Crowdfunding Law. And I’ve embedded it below. Feel free to edit. I am moderating the edits.
Of course, if you have questions about the law, you can always post them here too.
