Crowdfund investing was created by the JOBS Act in 2012 as a new form of financing that is intended to enable a small business or startup to seek funding from the network of people it has on LinkedIn, Facebook and other social networks. The issuer encourages the network members to review the investment offering on a government regulated website or portal. This course introduces you to the world of crowdfunding: how to get started, the different strategies available, the rules and regulations involved, and how to make the most of your existing network.
