What Investors Must Learn Before Buying Mini-IPO Stocks: A Two-part Webinar

Market experts discuss how SEC Regulation A+ allows Main Street to invest in early-stage companies

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2016 /CNW/ -- PR Newswire, Vintage and BetterInvesting invites individual investors to two educational webinars about investing in "Mini-IPOs," the nickname given to the SEC Regulation A+ process companies can use to raise capital.

The new Regulation A+ went into effect in June of 2015 with the intent of reviving the smaller IPO market by allowing companies to accept funds from both accredited and non-accredited investors. This has provided a new option for companies to raise capital for growth.
