Monday, May 6

Today, The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Small Business Capital Formation Advisory Committee is holding a meeting regarding Regulation Crowdfunding and the state of angel investing.

The SEC stated that in the morning session, “The Committee will discuss successes to-date, challenges, and whether there are potential changes that could improve the exemption. SEC staff will share background information on the regulatory framework, and Committee members will hear from an invited guest about her recent academic report and about the experiences and outcomes of women and under-represented entrepreneurs who participated in Reg CF.“

The committee will address angel investing in the afternoon. “Angel investors play a critical role in supporting early-stage companies, yet angel investments have slowed over the past year,“ the SEC said. “As part of this discussion, the Committee will explore how angel investors make decisions, their views on investment risk, and consider whether there are ways to encourage more angel investment activity.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For SEC officials as they explore entrepreneurial investments through crowdfunding and angel investing.
  • For Chair Gary Gensler to receive God’s guidance as he heads the SEC.
  • For discernment for the president and his economic advisors as they assess the nation’s business trends.
