►Venture Capital: 7 Top VC Firms & Funds Ranked - AngelKings.com
http://goo.gl/1RspNU | Ranking of the top venture capital firms in America - list of the best venture capital funds by success, return on investment (ROI) and internal rate of return (IRR) for investors. Expert venture capital investor, Ross Blankenship (http://rossblankenship.com) shows you a list of the best VC Firms and why they're ranked highest in the United States. What are the top venture capital firms? We've got the answer. Venture capital firms like NEA, Kleiner Perkins, Andreessen Horowitz, Khosla, and SV Angels receive capital from investors who already have wealth and want to grow more of it through non–traditional means. Then, they take that money and invest it into startup companies and other ventures that a traditional bank wouldn't be interested in, based on the risk. Investing in startup companies can be a risky proposition, and not for the faint of heart. Still, many people do it because they know that the rewards for success can be lucrative. Some venture capitalists just take their own money and invest it, but some form firms that use their money and that of others, and then choose where to invest based on consensus. A number of factors make a great venture capital firm. The success it has with investing is important, but other factors have to be considered in order to determine why a VC firm is successful and what it can offer to investors that other firms may not. What makes a successful VC firm? What do these firms do differently that catapults them to the forefront of their industry? Those are questions both investors and startups want answers for, but those answers may not be as clear–cut as one would expect. Some VC firms stand out, though, and understanding what they do and how they do it can help investors get a handle on what makes a good VC firm and how these firms attain (and retain) their success.

Quoting SEC Chairman, Mary Jo White, "....the mandate of Regulation A+ is to help increase the access of smaller companies to capital. This is obviously a very important objective. Our rule making goal is to make Regulation A+ an effective, workable path to raising capital that... builds in the necessary investor protections.” The SEC’s final rule was adopted on March 25, 2015. Here, the SEC expanded Regulation A into 2 tiers, Tier 1 for offerings of up to $20 million and Tier 2 for offerings up to $50 million. The SEC gave new retail investors the opportunity to invest, as long as the following provisions were abided by from startups: Offering Circular - companies must provide the SEC with audited financials for the previous two years of business. Liquidity - shares in startups are transferable, and not restricted. Proceeds - On Tier 2 offerings, there is an annual offering limit of up to $50 million in equity, debt or convertible securities, including no more than $15 million from selling security holders. For Tier 1 offerings, the annual limit is $20 million, with not more than $6 million from selling security holders.
