Crowdfunding is a buzzword and, from Kickstarter to the JOBS Act, holds great promise for collective action. With both technological and social aspects, the concept seems new and exciting and its impact is expanding globally. But in the United States, crowdfunding fits within an existing legal structure that is changing more slowly than the buzz would suggest.

As far back as the Renaissance, the “subscription” was used to allow a group of like-minded individuals to raise funds to collectively accomplish something that was too big (and too risky) for one person to take on alone. So what is new about crowdfunding compared to a subscription? (1) The buzz; (2) the technology (internet platforms); (3) the speed of raising funds; (4) the JOBS Act; and (5) SEC Regulations implementing the crowdfunding provisions of the JOBS Act. Please join CILS for a lively discussion on the practical uses of crowdfunding, the risks of using crowdfunding sources, and what we know (and still don’t know) about the SEC regulations.”
