More fundamentally, if your company needs money to fund operations greater than the $1,000,000 per year permitted under the JOBS Act We will likely see many early-stage companies using the crowdfunding option in the future. For some companies (in particular, those unable to get venture captial whether due to size, business sector, or geography), crowdfunding will make a great deal of sense. But it is less likely thatcrowdfunding will change the game plan for companies that would otherwise be able to secure venture capital financing.
