This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Posted by: Mark Marich on October 31, 2011 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

A couple of bills intended to make it easier for startups and other companies to raise capital get the spotlight in the House this week. The Rule Committee has scheduled a hearing -- and live webcast – covering the 'Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act' (HR 2930) and 'Access to Capital for Job Creators Act' (HR 2940). Both tweak rules for the Securities and Exchange Commission. HR 2930 would allow new firms to use crowdfunding to accept and pool donations of up to $1 million without having to register with the SEC. HR 2940 would remove the SEC ban that now prevents small companies from advertising to solicit investors.
