Will Regulation Crowdfunding Fuel Start-Up Innovation?

With the finalization of new rules for crowdfunding on May 16, 2016, entrepreneurs now have a new source of equity funding. Crowdfunding could become a valuable source of start-up funds for many types of companies, but especially for those producing products/services with finite markets, such as those working to develop and validate non-animal toxicity test methods. This democratization of entrepreneurship could also facilitate opportunities for non-traditional entrepreneurs, promoting greater diversity in company ownership.

For further information on the new crowdfunding rules and legislation in the U.S., read the latest In the Spotlight on AltTox: “DIY Entrepreneurship: Regulation Crowdfunding
