I am doing a pitch at a competition. One of the common elements in a pitch has been to address what your company needs or how can the audience help. However, the competition organizers suggested that due to new regulations on investor solicitation, one had to be extremely careful what was discussed in public (ie: don't mention anything about funding plans). I checked with an attorney who also indicated I should not mention crowdfunding in the pitch.
I am fine with leaving out the crowdfunding in the pitch, but I have postcards printed up that I was going to leave on the table (each finalist has a table with a poster and various handouts they can offer). The attorney didn't address if I could hand these out. But, I am wondering how can one promote a crowdfunding campaign if one could not hand out information cards and discuss the campaign in general?
I was planning to hand out the information cards at another conference as well to people in my target market.
Has anyone else encountered any information about regulations affecting discussion of crowdfunding?
