SEC introduces, unanimously approves crowdfunding proposals

The Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday formally proposed new rules that would allow entrepreneurs to raise capital from anyone in the country through online investment portals.

Right now, entrepreneurs can offer equity deals only to accredited investors through those marketplaces. More in the Washington Post here.
