Final Countdown to Invest I've mentioned a few times recently that one type of capital raise, a Regulation D 506(c), seems to be a fantastic way to raise capital that is completely untapped in the Louisville area. This type of SEC filing allows a local startup to advertise as much as they want as long as they only accept investments from accredited investors.
I used my own company, Blue222, as a test case, and the results have been fantastic. Blue222 is a Louisville area company that is "Uberizing" the business of real estate inspections - globally. Using the 506(c) exemption with a process I discussed in my last email lead us to quite a few local investors and eventually a $5 million investment from a Michigan private equity fund.
As we're finalizing the investment from the fund, we're completing one final $300,000 local capital raise under the 506(c) exemption. So, there's still time to invest ($5,000 minimum - accredited investors only). After the fund investment, no additional small investments will be accepted.
