Are you anxiously awaiting the Crowdfunding final rules? Are you considering operating as a Crowdfunding Portal?
If so, you should consider filling out and submitting this form:
To help FINRA develop rules that accurately reflect the funding portal community, FINRA is requesting information like:
- Ownership and legal Status of your Funding Portal (“FP”);
- Funding to date;
- Management; and
- Business Model.
The completed form should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once the final rules are released you will still need to apply your FP for FINRA membership, but hopefully the interim form information and the comments being received will expedite the rule-making process.
