How is equity crowdfunding different from angel investing?

Last Updated: Jun 07, 2017 04:29PM CDT
Angel investors are accredited investors. Their typical investment amount ranges from $150,000 to $2,000,000.
 

Individual investors are limited in the amounts they are allowed to invest in all Regulation Crowdfunding offerings over the course of a 12-month period:
 

  • If either of an investor’s annual income or net worth is less than $107,000, then the investor’s investment limit is the greater of:
  • $2,200 or
  • 5 percent of the lesser of the investor’s annual income or net worth.
    • If both annual income and net worth are equal to or more than $107,000, then the investor’s limit is 10 percent of the lesser of their annual income or net worth.
    • During the 12-month period, the aggregate amount of securities sold to an investor through all Regulation Crowdfunding offerings may not exceed $107,000, regardless of the investor’s annual income or net worth.


Spouses are allowed to calculate their net worth and annual income jointly. This chart illustrates a few examples of the investment limits:
