Common Complaints About Reg. Crowd Funding

Some common complaints about Reg. Crowd Funding, now that it’s almost a year old, include:

  • the $1 million cap (which, according to some, need not be since each investor is capped),
  • the investor cap (which is basically unenforceable as it’s untrackable),
  • the inability to use special purpose investment vehicles to aggregate investor money,
  • no pre-launch marketing,
  • the limitations on advertising the offering and
  • the regulatory costs, especially for the audit for raises over $500,000.
