People often ask what they can do to approach others for investment. There is a very clear investment process for major companies listed on the stock markets, but what about smaller companies? What steps can you take to secure equity investment in your limited company and how can you ensure you stay the right side of reams of financial services legislation? Private companies can issue shares to investors, this happens all the time. But there are criminal penalties for failing to comply with the relevant processes and procedures. Compliance requires an understanding of the relevant law, which is very complicated. This note looks at the main areas of concern for a company seeking to issue shares to investors, but each case will turn on its own facts and accordingly you will need to approach how you offer your shares to investors very carefully  376k v. 2 Apr 3, 2013, 1:37 PM David Khorram

. What is Crowdfunding? In one the earliest definitions, Rubinton et. al define Crowdfunding as “dis-intermediated investment banking.” However, in simpler terms, “Crowdfunding is the process of one party financing a project by requesting and receiving small contributions from many parties in exchange for a form of value to those parties.”3 Crowdfunding connects investors with small business start-ups and projects through an online transaction portal that removes barriers to entry and serves as the main point of connection. Just like an investor financially supports a company by buying shares in the stock exchange for profits, Crowdfunding allows investors to financially support a project through an online portal in exchange for benefits. The type of benefit that the investor earns or receives from the project defines the three Crowdfunding models:  499k v. 2 Apr 3, 2013, 1:26 PM David Khorram

The Internet has become an inexpensive and easy way for individuals and businesses to raise money for their activities. Congress recently passed the JOBS Act, which directs the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to create rules exempting crowdfunding from the securities registration laws. Once implemented these rules will remove restrictions on start-up companies seeking investors over the Internet. Investors should be on the lookout for unscrupulous issuers and intermediaries who may attempt to engage in crowdfunding before the rules are written or misuse crowdfunding to steal from investors through false and misleading representations.   128k v. 2 Apr 3, 2013, 1:22 PM David Khorram

What is Crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is the latest addition to your Fundraising toolkit. The practice of asking people to donate to a cause, charity, project or initiative is not a new concept, however Crowdfunding formalises a process of fundraising for projects through the internet and social networking. Crowdfunding is the collective cooperation, attention and trust by people who network and pool their money together, via the internet, in order to support the efforts initiated by other people or organisations. A Crowdfunding project relies on a number of small donations from your community in exchange for a reward and the ability to support your project.  64k v. 4 Apr 3, 2013, 1:13 PM David Khorram

You are an established non-profit brand, with a long operating history and good reputation. You have consistently tapped into grant sources to fund your operation, and based on outcomes of your work, these grant sources have been a steadily growing source of funding. Until recently. Foundation grants have become harder to come by, and government funding is also more scarce. In addition to your grant funding, you have a phenomenal franchise sponsoring a series of events, where volunteers (fill-in-the-blank: run / walk / ride / dance / jump rope / shoot hoops / break guinness book records) and use their escapades to help raise awareness for your cause and raise money. But you have tapped out the market for this event, and you are now growing at a rate of 10-20% per year, not the 100% or 200% that you started out with. In short, you are unsatisfied with the pace of growth of your fundraising, and you are looking for ideas / answers / approaches.  140k v. 2 Apr 3, 2013, 1:34 PM David Khorram
