PHOENIX, AZ – Clark Hill attorney Charles Berry presented on new crowdfunding rules and how they will affect the ability to raise capital at the Arizona Technology Council's Council Connect luncheon series on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at the Gladly in Phoenix, Arizona.  

Berry discussed how the final SEC equity crowdfunding rules are finally here, set to take effect May 16, 2016 and what entrepreneurs need to know about crowdfunding, other new fundraising techniques and the nuts and bolts of federal and Arizona equity crowdfunding. Attendees learned about the investment limits, qualifications, entity formation and governance issues, disclosure requirements, ongoing reporting, and the new online funding portals.
