Given Forbes’ designation of SeedInvest as one of the “leading players in equity crowdfunding” a few weeks ago, it may not have come as a surprise that SeedInvest was included on the list of Top Contenders in 2013. We’re honored to be mentioned and will continue running hard to hopefully meet and exceed the lofty expectations placed on our platform. We will also continue to serve as thought leaders in the space in order to ensure, to the best of our ability, that the JOBS Act is implemented in the best matter for both entrepreneurs and investors.
On that note, earlier this week, yet another decisive step towards legalization was made when FINRA asked prospective crowdfunding platforms to file “funding portal forms.” SeedInvest CEO commented on the matter on behalf of The Crowdfund Intermediary Regulatory Advocates (CFIRA). “As a funding portal we see the request for information in a very positive light,” says Ryan Feit, the CFIRA Funding Portal Subcommittee Chair and Founder of SeedInvest. “Crowdfund Investing by nature brings transparency to the capital raising process.
As an industry we are happy to be transparent by providing FINRA with the information they requested.” We still have a lot of work to do both on the business and regulatory fronts, but SeedInvest will have a very exciting few months ahead so stay tuned.
