Remember when raising funds in the capital markets was only for large companies? Did you think the IPO process was too burdensome and only possible for companies raising large dollars? Did you think the ability of small business to access the capital markets was limited?
Well, you were right, but things have changed for the better. In March 2015, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved a new regulation that has made it much easier for small companies to raise larger amounts of capital from investors before going public. Regulation A+ took effect in June.
