The emerging trend in equity crowdfunding promises to make 2014 a positive year for businesses that struggle with other financing sources. StartupValley is a valuable resource for small businesses that are trying to turn an idea into a reality. Read on to find out what makes 2014 an ideal year to succeed with the help of equity crowdfunding.

1. Investors are becoming more interested in helping out entrepreneurs with a strong social conscious.

More investors these days are interested in helping out new businesses that have a purpose along with making a profit. Entrepreneurs who have a lucrative business idea that can help society are attractive to investors. Investors have taken note of the increased popularity in social responsibility, and these investors know that socially responsible companies are set to enjoy success in the long term.

2. The popularity of equity crowdfunding websites has exploded in recent years.

While equity crowdfunding is still a relatively new concept, this method of raising funds to launch a business has quickly taken off. Investors are excited at the opportunity to get a foot in the door early in companies that could grow in the future. Entrepreneurs are delighted to find that they can raise funds to start their business from the comfort of their office or on the go. There is no longer a reason for bright individuals with powerful ideas to be limited in their success due to financial restraints.

3. The SEC is mulling over the JOBS Act this year.

While Congress has passed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act to make crowdfunding legal, the SEC is currently finalizing the rules and regulations of equity crowdfunding.

Equity crowdfunding is a great method to get a business started and off the ground. StartupValley helps entrepreneurs get in touch with investors who would not have been able to find out about the opportunity without the help of the platform. These investors provide capital to startup companies in exchange for equity in the business. This revolutionary way of matching entrepreneurs with investors is sure to make 2014 a stellar year for equity crowdfunding and building successful business relationships.
