Equity Crowdfunding?

Hey Everyone! I remember a while back hearing in the news that crowdfunding rules were going to be relaxed enough to where folks were going to be able to offer equity in a crowdfunding campaign, (financial equity as opposed to non-monetary rewards). Does anyone know of any crowdfunding platforms that offer this option? Or has the SEC snuffed this option?

William, I'm not too versed in this but I do believe Texas made some changes on equity crowdfunding this year. Maybe a quick Google search into that ruling & which platforms will honor that might help. Also, I'm not sure if you're funding in US or in another country, but I did learn of a great French crowdfunding platform Ulele (might be worth looking into).

Thanks Julie! Those are some great leads -- I will check those out.

Hi William, I know Slated.com is a pretty popular equity crowdfunder. I haven't used their services (yet). They just came up in my financing research and read a few articles on them.
