Created by the JOBS Act, Regulation Crowdfunding allows startups to raise up to $1,070,000 per year from an unlimited number of investors, no matter how wealthy they are. This law was rolled out May 16th, 2016.
Investors are also limited in the amount of capital they may invest in Regulation Crowdfunding startups per year. To calculate your investment limit, first choose either your net income or net worth - whichever is lower. If the lower number is over $107,000, you are allowed to invest 10% of it each year. Otherwise, only 5%. For instance, if your income is $96,000 and your net worth $200,000, you'd be legally allowed to invest $4,800 per year in startups.
