A Petition to Help Small Businesses and Start-Ups Gain Access to Capital

Tell the SEC: Change the 78-year old laws that restrict small businesses/startups from crowd-funding capital!

SBE Council member Woodie Neiss, a successful and passionate entrepreneur, is working to modernize antiquated Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules that have become a barrier to investment in America’s small businesses. Woodie and I have met with various policy leaders, regulators and Capitol Hill staff in an effort to reform these regulations so that entrepreneurs can widen their pool of prospective investors who may want to provide capital for their businesses, or business ideas.

A petition calling upon the SEC to change these outdated laws has just gone live. By visiting the petition website, you can join the hundreds who have already signed the petition and learn about the specific recommendations we are making to remove these artificial barriers to capital access.

Please click here to sign the petition and join our efforts!

Karen Kerrigan, President & CEO
