Legacy Series of the Compassionate Capitalist  Podcast: focuses on the past attempts by the SEC to limit emerging growth and start up companies ability to effectively raise capital from private investors. In 2014 the SEC is considered a proposal to increase the threshold for what was considered an Angel Investor.  After so much effort has gone into increasing the ease at which an entrepreneur can find and attract sophisticated investors to their opportunity with the Jobs Act initiatives, any such increase will change the very foundation of angel investing in to early stage and start up companies.  

Tune into this show to learn about the issue and what you can do to prevent it from happening in the future. 

Karen Rands interviewed Marianne Hudson from the Angel Capital Association.  The Angel Capital Association is the leading professional and trade association supporting the success of angel investors in high-growth, early-stage ventures.

One Simple Objective: Protect angel startup funding and the startup economy by urging regulators to preserve financial thresholds in the current accredited investor definition.  We must remain virgil to keep access to capital open and the ability for investors to be compassionate capitalists.
