Additional SEC Information
The 2012 Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act was enacted to encourage small business growth and startup funding by increasing the ability of small businesses to raise capital and by lessening certain regulatory requirements for individual investments in new businesses. Under the JOBS Act, the SEC is required to write rules that facilitate capital formation and promote investor protection, and to inform small businesses, medium sized businesses, women owned businesses, veteran owned businesses, and minority owned businesses of the changes made by the JOBS Act. For additional information on the changes made by the JOBS Act, see the SEC JOBS Act Spotlight.
