Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act)
The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) is a law intended to encourage funding of United States small businesses and startups by easing securities regulations imposed by the SEC. The Act focuses on making it easier for startups to get capital financing, with the Crowdfunding Act playing a major part. The Crowdfunding Act allows just about any investor to invest in startups by removing 1930s era SEC regulations, and thus gives startups significantly greater access to capital.
