Community Public Offering

2015 is a Minnesota historic year!
Ordinary Minnesota residents are now allowed to participate in their state’s economy, investing in local businesses, innovative start-ups, and socially minded enterprises. On June 16, 2015 new law was allowed into Minnesota homes and down main streets that makes business investment opportunities available to the public.
If you live in Minnesota, and that’s the key. This is an intrastate law and only Minnesota residents can participate. Much more information and new resources will be found here: How to get started, where to find information and expertise, and how to be compliant with the law.

 

 

If you are ready to take a look at possible investments, and you’re a Minnesota resident, you have come to the right place.
If you are a business looking for new ways to raise capital, and 80% of your business takes place in Minnesota, you have come to the right place.

 


 

The Minnesota Department of Commerce, attorneys at Winthrop & Weinstine, and other experts have created new kinds of access to capital through MNVest legislation
