The FUNDSITION platform uses the Reg D 506(c) exemption to support companies in raising capital, as you can market and advertise these Offerings, issuers can take their deals to the world of accredited investors looking to invest.
AT FUNDSITION, WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT COMPANIES WITH ACCESSING CAPITAL IN A SEAMLESS AND TIMELY MANNER FROM A WIDER INVESTOR POOL.
A key advantage of structuring an offering under the 506(c) exemption is the ability to generally solicit or advertise the offering. This means that issuers can advertise their Offering, including online or more traditional channels.
This powerful benefit allows investors to show their current Offering to the world, with the goal of more efficient fundraising and a larger investor base for future capital requirements.
There is a significant benefit to leveraging a platform that can market for you. Our platform allows an issuer to showcase their Offering in a compliant manner to accredited investors who are members of the platform.
A major difference between the two types of 506 offerings is the different types of documents required to be disclosed, this is where 506(c) becomes easier and more cost effective for an issuer to manage.
It can make it easier for small companies to raise capital while decreasing administrative costs. With a 506(c) Offering, the document disclosure requirements may be less onerous as all investors must be accredited.
No annual funding limitations with 506(c).
Broker-dealer Verified Accreditation
While issuers can allow non-accredited investors in 506(b), both exemptions still require that accredited investors are verified. The difference is the requirement on how a verification takes place, with a 506(b) offering, investors are verified through self-verification, but with a 506(c) offering, the issuer or broker-dealer has to verify the accreditation status of the investor. FUNDSITION has a broker-dealer and the functional capabilities for accredited investors to upload a letter of accreditation by a CPA, attorney, or other professional and an online function.
