Despite being around for years now, there is still major confusion from issuers regarding the benefits and drawbacks of Regulation A (Reg.A), Regulation CF (Reg.CF), and Regulation D (Reg.D) crowdfunding offerings. What option is right for you? In this podcast, Mike Brette, the CEO and Founder of Small Cap Equity Advisors goes over why he believes Reg.A is the superior choice in most instances, plus provides advice as to what issuers should be doing (and what they shouldn’t be doing as well) in order to achieve a successful capital raise.

Listen to “Why Reg.A is the Superior Crowdfunding Choice over Reg.D or Reg.CF” on Spreaker.

Reg.A, Reg.D, Reg.CF… What’s best for you and/or your company? And how much will it all cost you? Based on the reasons Mr. Brette provides in this podcast, both pro and con, he makes a strong case that regardless of the size of your raise, you should strongly consider the Reg.A option right from the start.

Listen to this podcast to learn what he considers to be the three major reasons why so many issuers fail, plus what you can do to avoid the traps of failure.
