Investment crowdfunding is a new way for businesses to raise money by selling debt or equity securities to the public using an investment crowdfunding platform like LocalstakeNC. Businesses can sell equity securities including preferred or common stock or SAFEs, or debt securities including convertible notes, revenue share loans, or promissory note loans. Now NC businesses and startups can use new securities laws including the NC PACES Act (raise up to $2M), the Federal JOBS Act Regulation Crowdfunding (raise up to $1M), and Reg A+ (raise up to $50M) to raise funds, and both accredited and non-accredited investors can invest in North Carolina startups and businesses that offer securities using these laws. LocalstakeNC also supports 506(B), 506(C), and 504 offerings.
