Michigan Invests Locally Exemption

Michigan has become the fourth state to further the local investing movement with an intrastate exemption, passed into law on Dec. 30, 2013. PA 264, otherwise known as the Michigan Invests Locally Exemption (MILE), allows Michigan businesses to raise capital from Michigan investors, online or in person. Reconsider, an Ypsilanti based expert in social impact economy research and business advisory services focused on community capital, local investing, and social enterprise, wants to get the word out on PA 264. To that end, Reconsider has teamed up with Corp! to survey how interested Michigan residents are in this new opportunity.
The survey is easy, quick and anonymous.
