Congress is set to pass the Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act, which will allow Average Joe to fund startups with small amounts of money. This will further disrupt the venture world, by allowing startups to raise $100,000 from 1,000 people rather than from two. Currently, this system of crowdsourcing is illegal, but this will change in the near future. The hope is that this new legislation will not only allow startups to flourish but also enable the creation of more jobs, jobs, and more jobs. So unoriginal, Congress!
