Sharkthemarket.com Applauds the JOBS Act

Sharkthemarket.com discusses the JOBS Act. New legislation allows crowd funding and the use of social media to boost investments in small companies.

PRLog - April 6, 2012 - NEW YORK -- This week President Obama signed  the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act, a collection of laws that relaxes regulations on capital raising for startup companies and gives all companies more flexibility in how and when they go public.

Social media was a big factor in the adoption of this legislation since crowdfunding is a critical part of the JOBS Act.  No social media. No JOBS Act. It’s that simple.

Companies can raise money from anyone. This is also a benefit for the general public. If you're a fan of a company and you ask, "Can I invest in your company?" the answer now changes from No to Maybe.

The playing field is now level.  It gives startups more control over their message. The lifting of the "general solicitation" ban for investments means that startups can advertise themselves as fund-raising when they are still in very early stages, before they have a product. They can raise awareness, get excitement going, and use that to help get some money in the bank.

Where are they going to do this marketing? Where can the aggregate their twitter feeds, Facebook wall, and newswire? Sharkthemarket.com welcomes all early stage investors and companies.

Sharkthemarket.com is an investor relations platform for public and private companies.
