How Equity Crowdfunding Could Change How People Invest in Sports
Want to invest in sports? Consider this emerging option: equity crowd funding
You’ve heard a lot about crowdfunding since JOBS Act Title II passed last year. Since then, early stage companies have turned to general solicitation in search of funding. The caveat is that investment must come from accredited investors through SEC-registered intermediaries. This has given rise to many equity crowdfunding platforms. These portals, mostly online, allow accredited investors to inject capital into private businesses through lending or investment in exchange for an ownership stake. Colloquially, this is known as equity crowd funding…….
With the current circumstances in today’s capital market, equity crowdfunding is the future for accredited investors in sports and entertainment. That is until the (inevitable) next investment vehicle is engineered to tap into the endearing and increasingly profitable aspects of the sports entertainment business or when the SEC changes the game.
