New Startup, Funded, Streamlines Capital Raises as Reg A+ Aims to Surpass $2B Raised in 2022
With the SEC increasing the maximum offering amount under Regulation A from $50M to $75M in late 2020, companies race to take advantage of the increased limits
SAN DIEGO, June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Funded, a California-based marketing firm focused on Regulation A capital raises, is working to streamline the Reg A process for issuers.
