41st Annual Small Business Forum

41st Annual Small Business Forum
41st Annual Small Business Forum

Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) released its report to Congress summarizing the key policy recommendations made at the 41st Annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation (“Small Business Forum”). The Small Business Forum was led by the SEC’s Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation in collaboration with other offices and divisions across the agency. The Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation is an independent office of the agency established to identify and address the unique challenges and advance the interests of small businesses and their investors within the SEC.

During the Small Business Forum, participants shared their views on a number of topics, which were organized around the following themes: Empowering Entrepreneurs: Tools to Navigate Raising Capital; Hometown Entrepreneurship: How Entrepreneurs Can Thrive Outside Traditional Capital Growth Centers; New Investor Voices: How Emerging Fund Managers Are Diversifying Capital; and the small-cap world: what to know and how to proceed.

Instead, the SEC’s report to the Small Business Forum included various topics related to capital raising strategies and the SEC’s recommendations for improving the capital raising framework. The report featured remarks by Chair Gensler that emphasized the SEC’s mission to promote capital formation. Consistent with Chair Gensler’s comments, a point that has been emphasized throughout the Small Business Forum and, consequently, in the report, concerns the importance of providing small businesses access to public markets. Despite the availability of capital in private markets, the report emphasizes that for smaller companies, public markets provide important benefits in the form of increased transparency and increased visibility through public disclosure, ensuring that all investors receive information at the same time, thereby increasing investor leverage. Confidence for investors who may not have a close connection with the company. Similarly, the report emphasizes the importance of standardized public market disclosures, which enable comparability for a company among its peers. The SEC notes that the market advantages of public markets and increased access to more information enable smaller companies to lower their cost of capital to allow investors to more accurately value these companies, thereby balancing the costs and barriers to entry faced in an IPO. .

Participants recommended several policies to the SEC, including:

Amend Regulation Crowdfunding to allow investment companies to conduct a Regulation Crowdfunding offering; Expand the definition of accredited investor to achieve greater diversity among startup investors and entrepreneurs—by adding other sophisticated measures, and to include anyone who invests no more than 10% of their annual income or net worth; finalize the SEC’s proposed exemption order that would allow certain prospectors to operate without registering as broker-dealers; Create a new private funding exemption to allow states to encourage interstate and regional funds focused on community-based investments open to non-accredited investors; and increase the number of authorized investors in a section 3(c)(1) fund above 99 investors.
