According to David Drake, Founder and Chairman of LDJ Capital, Victoria Global, The Soho Loft Media Group & Drake Hospitality Group “Regulation A+ is a game changer in the sense that it raises the maximum amount that startups can raise through crowdfunding to 50 million from 5 million dollars. It also removes compliance requirements at state level and allows the general public to invest in startups without necessarily being accredited. This is a major breakthrough because startups and even small businesses are now allowed to hold initial public offers from the general public and not just accredited investors”.

Scott Purcell, CEO and Founder of FundAmerica, says “Compared to 506(c), Reg A+ takes way more time to launch an offering, and far more costly in terms of legal fees, accounting costs, and annual reporting obligations. However, it enables you to sell to unaccredited investors and creates a tradable security.”
FinLawyer & ConsultDA Partner Scott Andersen says, “Participants in Reg A+ will frequently operate on an investment advisory model. Compared to the broker-dealer model, investment advisors are not regulated by FINRA. Thus, the model is generally less costly to operate. This provides an option that enables entrepreneurs to pursue business opportunities that Congress intended when it enacted the JOBS Act.”
