Reinvigorate American Capitalism Through Crowdfunding

In this episode, we dive into the world of crowdfunding and see how it can reinvigorate American Capitalism with our special guest Mark Roderick. Crowdfunding is an exciting and transformative concept that simplifies capital formation through the Internet. Mark, a corporate lawyer with extensive experience in helping entrepreneurs raise capital, shares his insights on how crowdfunding has the potential to revolutionize investment opportunities.

With the internet expanding opportunities in raising capital, similar to how it revolutionized the retail and dating industries, Mark explains how crowdfunding can connect entrepreneurs with investors in unprecedented ways. Specifically, he delves into the Jobs Act of 2012, which created different types of crowdfunding, including the highly successful Rule 506 C that allowed real estate professionals to advertise and raise billions of dollars. With Mark’s guidance, we also explore the three essential documents in real estate deals that are vital for legality and protection against potential challenges. Join us for this enlightening episode as we uncover the power and potential of crowdfunding with the knowledgeable and experienced Mark Roderick.

Key Points from This Episode:

  • Crowdfunding has the potential to revolutionize real estate investment opportunities.
  • The Internet greatly expands opportunities for raising capital and connecting with investors, similar to how it has revolutionized retail and other industries.
  • Mark has extensive experience in helping entrepreneurs and real estate professionals raise capital.
  • Mark is knowledgeable and experienced in navigating the complexities of crowdfunding laws and helping real estate professionals comply with new regulations.
  • The Jobs Act of 2012 created three types of crowdfunding, including the most successful one, which was a change in the previous rule that prohibited the advertising of real estate syndications.
  • Rule 506 C allows for advertising and requires verification of accreditation for investors.
  • This change enabled real estate professionals to raise billions of dollars of capital, making it a spectacularly successful source of funding.
  • As a corporate lawyer, Mark can provide legally sound and easily understandable documents to ensure compliance and avoid legal troubles in the crowdfunding process.
  • While Mark can assist with legal aspects, he is not able to directly help with raising funds. Established real estate crowdfunding sites like RealCrowd or CrowdStreet may be a viable option for experienced individuals to access an existing investor base.
  • For those starting out, crowdfunding requires active digital marketing efforts. Simply creating a website is not enough to attract investors; it is a marketing business that requires proactive efforts to generate interest and secure investments.
  • Three essential documents in real estate deals – the subscription agreement, limited liability company agreement, and the disclosure document (PPM) – play a vital role in keeping the process legal and protecting against potential legal challenges.
  • Crowdfunding thrives in spaces where limited information is available and can make deals more efficient and known to a broader audience.
  • Crowdfunding is not well-suited for fully efficient markets like single-family home mortgage loans or large-scale development projects where most major investors have access to in-depth information about the deal.

How Can Sponsors Raise More Money When A Deal Goes South?

When a real estate deal goes bad as many are doing now, should limited partners have the right of first refusal to invest rescue capital on the same terms as anything the sponsor can bring in to save the deal?

My podcast guest today, attorney Mark Roderick, calls it ‘pre-emptive rights’ and, as you will hear, he explains it can make the best of a bad situation.

But what does that look like in reality?

In this episode… Why is intellectual honesty important for lawyers? By prioritizing what is morally correct over personal gain, lawyers strengthen the lawyer-client relationship and contribute to a fair and just society.

To the delight of both issuers and investors, the SEC continues to make crowdfunding better as they have announced major changes to their crowdfunding rules.

SEC Announces Two Major Changes to Crowdfunding


This special edition podcast covers two announcements from the SEC first brought to my attention by my guest, Mark Roderick, who is best known as The Crowdfunding Attorney.

The first is that in due course, it will be permitted to pay commissions to someone who helps you find equity for your projects based on the amount of money that they raise for you. This is a seismic change. The second is the addition of non-accredited investors to deals that would normally only be available to accredited investors. rules that the SEC issued to facilitate Title III crowdfunding during the coronavirus crisis.

How Coronavirus is Impacting Crowdfunding


mapablelogo4Coronavirus is the epitome of what a “risk factor” is in any crowdfunding or real estate deal. As such, whatever the deal, issuers are required to warn potential investors about the riskiness of such an investment. If they don’t, then these businesses can get into serious trouble. Coronavirus compounds that issue even more. In this podcast, attorney Mark Roderick of Lex Nova Law provides some real world examples of what Covid19 disclosures are required in crowdfunding offerings and goes over some of the emergency rules that the SEC issued to facilitate Title III crowdfunding during the coronavirus crisis.

The Wealthy Wellthy Podcast: What You Don’t Know About Crowdfunding



Our guest on this episode of The Wealthy Wellthy Podcast is Mark Roderick, an attorney who devotes most of his time to crowdfunding. Maybe you are like me in thinking that crowdfunding is pretty straightforward and self-explanatory. I mean, if your friend is looking to start a business and you want to support them, you can donate or invest through their crowdfunding page online and that’s that, right?

Every entrepreneur faces the stage in their business where they need to acquire capital, either from acquaintances, networking, angel investors, venture capitalists, or strategic partners. This process is messy and confusing, filled with regulations and stipulations that may make acquiring the capital more trouble than it is worth. This was partially due to the antiquated laws that were created in the aftermath of The Great Depression and were stifling in the modern economic climate. However, in 2012, the Jobs Act made it legal for entrepreneurs to advertise to raise capital. This opened up a whole new world for small business owners and others who were desperate to be able to connect more easily with potential investors as well as investors who were eager to find new opportunities.

During the interview, Mark distinguishes between the 3 kinds of crowdfunding: (1) to accredited investors only, (2) Regulation A to accredited or non accredited investors, and (3) Title 3 – which is the most common. He also talks about the factors that are most important from a legal perspective when you are determining which crowdfunding site to use to raise capital or to invest capital. It was also interesting to hear Mark spell out the 3 reasons why people invest through crowdfunding: (1) they want to support the company, (2) to do social good, and (3) to make money.

Mark even gave me some advice about a real estate deal I am considering and revealed that 90-95% of the capital exchanged through crowdfunding is for real estate transactions. Finally, he busted a couple of myths regarding the amount of risk involved in crowdfunding and whether money raised from others is subject to securities laws.

Why Qualified Opportunity Zone Funds Are the Hottest Topic of Crowdfunding Real Estate

Mapable USA Podcast


The word is out about Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZ) and just about every real estate professional in the country is interested about how this IRS sanctioned program works. Investing in a QOZ Fund provides all Americans with a way to save money on their taxes and provides real estate developers with a great angle to raise money for their projects. But are these investment vehicles securities? Can non-accredited investors participate in this form of crowdfunding? How can issuers create their own fund? Listen to attorney Mark Roderick from Flaster Greenberg PC address these questions, what the intricacies of QOZ investing are, and many other items of interest on this episode of the Mapable USA crowdfunding podcast.

While most funds center around real estate projects, any form of substantial improvement into a Qualified Opportunity Zone will satisfy the requirement of a QOZ fund – and that includes bringing in businesses and employment opportunities into these distressed communities. As such, the QOZ Marketplace is a website in progress connecting and identifying Qualified Opportunity Zone tracks and census data, along with a list of Opportunity Zone Funds and real estate properties for those interested in QOZ investing. Because of their tax deferral benefits, getting people seeking to defer their capital gains taxes to invest in these funds probably won’t be an issue. But Mr. Roderick brings up a great point: because QOZ Funds are self-certified, it’s important to be on the outlook for fraud. His advice? Look for a deal with a strong foundation with reputable people – the tax deferral savings is just icing on the cake! You can contact him by email or at 856.661.2265.

Tokenization: The Legal Take on Jobs Act Equity Crowdfunding and Security Token Offerings

Tokenization podcast MSR


If you’re a entrepreneur, you’re probably looking for some way to raise capital. You probably have heard of crowdfunding, but you may not have heard of the Jobs Act of 2012 and how it relates to crowdfunding – which is significant because its potential is enormous. Besides Regulation A+, Reg. CF, and Title II crowdfunding options to name a few, now investors and issuers can take advantage of the “tokenization” of assets via Security Token Offerings based on blockchain technology. However, there are complicated rules associated with all aspects of crowdfunding, which is why it’s so important to have legal representation throughout all phases of the process.

In this podcast episode, we interviewed crowdfunding attorney Mark Roderick from Flaster Greenberg PC who gave us many insights on crowdfunding in general, plus his take on tokenization and what security tokens can actually do for issuers and investors alike. Forget what everyone says about raising money. As stated on the podcast, crowdfunding is a marketing business, but it’s smart to have legal counsel at all times too – which is why anyone thinking of getting involved with crowdfunding on any level would be wise to contact Mr. Roderick and read his crowdfunding blog where you can find hundreds of posts with excellent information dedicated to legal crowdfunding success. See that? Sometimes lawyers can be your friend!

And speaking of crowdfunding, according to Mark, about 90% of the Reg.A+ crowdfunding deals he’s seen is regarding real estate. You know what most of the Reg.CF deals are? (here’s a hint).

GoFundME Done Wrong – Crowdfunding for Homeless Man John Bobbit

September 16, 2018


Host and KYW Newsradio community affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions about a viral GoFundMe campaign gone wrong. It all began last year when Johnny Bobbit, a homeless veteran gave $20 to a stranded Katie McClure. To return the favor, McClure and boyfriend Mark D’Marco set up a GoFundMe account to help Bobbitt. The effort got widespread support, raising $400,000. Fast forward and Bobbitt claims the New Jersey couple didn’t give him the money that was raised. He lawyered up and filed a lawsuit and now the couple could be indicted on fraud charges. What are the rules of crowdfunding online and beyond? How can donors protect themselves from fraudsters? Who must pay if a “fundraiser” turns out to be fraud. Panelists this week include Mark Roderick, an attorney with Flaster Greenberg who specializes in crowdfunding, Mu’min Islam, an attorney who represented a homeless couple that sued a non-profit that raised money on their behalf and Tom Nickels, a freelance journalist who knows Bobbit and penned a column titled, “City Safari: Faux Friends Defund Johnny.

If you’re interested, my interview is HERE. But as long as you’re at the site, take a look at the eight other people Josef has identified as industry leaders, people like Richard Swart and Joy Schoffler. Responding to the same questions, you might find their answers more interesting.

I’m honored to have been selected. Josef, thank you for what you do in this space.
