There are some new entrepreneur platforms like GrowthFountain and multiple others that will be offering angel like investment opportunities to unaccredited investors. From what I understand, the existing platforms only allow accredited investors to fund start ups for equity.
Expect to see sites like kickstarter, indiegogo, angel list, and a bunch of others allow equity based funding from average joes. If you start a kickstarter campaign right now you can't offer equity, that could change.
Thats my take on it at least
