You can't raise money publicly yet Edit this post

Yesterday, the SEC lifted the ban on general solicitation for startups. AngelList and many others have been working on this law for a long time. 

But you can’t raise money publicly yet. The new regulations will go into effect sometime in September. 

Even then, the SEC is considering new regulations that may make it prohibitive for the typical tech startup to raise money publicly. Hopefully not. We are working on this. 

Also, you still can’t raise money from unaccredited investors to “crowdfund” your startup. Whether or not you engage in general solicitation. But this may change next year.

Of course, AngelList will support raising money publicly when the ban on general solicitation lifts.
