Important bill for startups and investors

Support the JOBS Act, an important bill for startups and investors. The bill already has the support of Google, Steve Case, Ron Conway and many others.

Startups are currently forbidden to (1) raise money through crowdfunding and (2) publicly discuss that they are raising money. The House version of this bill will ease these regulations. It will also allow startups to receive services like standardized docs from incubators and platforms like AngelList.

The House passed the bill 390-23 and we need your support to get it through the Senate. AngelList and many others are supporting this bill by sending a letter to the Senate -- we'd like to ask you to join us by adding your signature:

We're running up against a deadline: the Senate vote is on Tuesday and we need your help by Monday 9am Pacific time. Apologies for the last minute request but this bill is not only important to our industry, it is important for the creation of jobs throughout the U.S., and our global competitiveness.
