Friends and Family
Other ways non accredited investors gained access to these investments were if they were friends and family of the team raising capital which allows for a limited set of unaccredited investors. If you qualify as a friend or family member of an entrepreneur you can invest in their company. There is a limit on the entrepreneur to only allowing 35 non-accredited investors. Massachussets limits this to only 10. New York, Massachusetts, and California have a blue sky law that does not require the founder to file expensive legal paperwork, while other states this is a requirement for the firm raising.
How much am I allowed to invest?
An Accredited Investor has no limits. If you are not accredited, the amount you may invest each year in startup private equity offerings, will be between 5% and 10% of your income. In order to understand the amount you can investment there are a few steps. One choose either your net income or net worth, whichever is higher. If the higher number is over $100,000, you are allowed to invest 10% of it each year. If it below $100k you only invest 5%. For instance, if your income is $82,000 and your net worth $120,000, you'd be legally allowed to invest $12,000 per year in startups. We suggest consulting with a lawyer to ensure you are complying with the law.
