Infographic: A Very Short Introduction To Crowdfunding

The so-called “crowd funding” amendment has passed the U.S. Senate and is expected to pass the House and be signed by the president.

The proposal expands access to capital for start-ups and small businesses by allowing investors — large and small — to put money forward via social media or the Internet.

White House officials issued a statement Thursday saying they were pleased with the measure.

“The President is grateful that the Senate acted in a bipartisan way to … help our small businesses and startups access capital they need to grow and create jobs.”
