[A 501c4 MN nonprofit]

As you may be aware, equity crowdfunding for the masses (non-accredited investors) is not yet legal in the state of Minnesota, consequently startup and existing businesses are being starved of capital vital to growth. The goals of this group are to 1) build grassroots support for an intrastate crowdfunding securities exemption, 2) discuss business opportunities related to equity crowdfunding, and 3) meet like-minded individuals seeking to utilize this new funding medium. We have drafted a bill to be offered once the MN Legislature is back in session on Jan. 1, 2015. This law would legalize equity crowdfunding in MN, and in doing so help create jobs, provide additional revenue to the state, and spur economic growth.
