SEC says YES to Equity Crowdfunding!

After over three years in regulatory limbo, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has finally voted the adoption of the Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act at a public meeting, Friday 30 October 2015. SEC is led by Chair Mary Jo White with Commissioners Luis A. Aguilar, Kara M. Stein, and Michael S. Piwowar. Three Commissioners – White, Stein and Aguilar – voted yes to equity crowdfunding law.

President Obama signed the JOBS Act on 5 April 2012. While Title II (Regulation D) and Title IV (Regulation A+) have been given the green light on 23 Sept 2013 and 25 March 2015 respectively, there has been much hesitation where Title III (Equity Crowdfunding) was [...]

A Better Model For Crowd Equity Funding?

I have a solution!

Put all the [...]

3 Equity Crowdfunding Platforms Australians Can Use Now

Three months after the submission of the CAMAC Crowdfunding Legislation recommendations we are expecting further delays of 12 – 18 months before we see meaningful change in Crowdfunding legislation in Australia.

Clearly this government has more pressing issues at hand including passing even a few of their budget measures, acting on the recommendations doesn’t appear to be a priority as nothing has been heard of the recommendations since being lodged some months ago and CAMAC has now been disbanded.

Unless it’s a legislative change the Government of the day is sponsoring the process will probably go something like this

MetalTree’s HUGE 3D Printer demos at Sydney Maker Faire

Meet the Metaltree 3D Printer maker Jason Crowe.

Metaltree-Jason Crowe

At 1.2m high this is the biggest 3D printer I have seen (and none of it is support cabinet), earlier in the year we researched over 50 printers in our 3d printers comparison and this is significantly larger build volume than anything I have seen on the market short of the industrial versions.

It uses a Delta configuration which means that the extruder head moves around on 6 arms and the build plate doesn’t move at all.

This simplifies construction and allows for a larger build space for a given size and weight than a traditional 3d Printer where the [...]
