Now People Can Buy Stocks with a Credit Card

Invest in a Drone Company – Non-U.S. Investors

It all started from the enactment of Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) in 2012, which made it easier for the small companies and startups to go public and allowed them to raise capital by selling securities to the general public.

In 2015, title IV of the JOBS Act (Regulation A+) came into force, which allowed not only the accredited investors but the general public to buy stocks in a public company. Some companies offer as low as $5 a share, or even less.  So you can pay $5 with a credit card or whatever medium that suits you.

Regulation A+ IPO has enabled many startups to access the capital they really needed and also gave a great opportunity for the general public to become investors in the stock exchange.

Take the example of ShiftPixie, a marketplace for those seeking or selling shift jobs, ran a successful Regulation A + IPO to collect $12 million.

The impact was visible right away, in just one year after the IPO, the net revenues bolstered to $22 million from $4 million in the previous year; a win-win for both the company and the investors.

With the required capital under its belt, the company was able to launch its business app and expand to multiple states across the United States.

Another company that made the best out of Regulation A+ IPO is Arcimoto, an innovative company that makes electric vehicles, the company planned to raise 10 million initially, but the offering was so successful that they closed just shy of $20 million.

According to Arcimoto’s company’s CEO, what the startup failed to achieve in 10 years, got in just 4 weeks; all thanks to the Regulation A+ IPO.  After the IPO, the company has a weekly profit of $1 million dollars.

Robert Malin, who leads the capital markets at WR Hambrecht, sees great opportunities for start-ups that are considering Regulation A+ IPO; especially those with innovative and disruptive business models.

Talking about innovative and disruptive businesses, more recently,  Mota Group, a drone and robotics company from San Jose, Calif. that makes some cool commercial and personal drones, has announced that it has filed for Regulation A+ IPO.

Already having a respected name in the drone industry with some great drones such as JETJAT® Nano and LILY NEXT-GEN™, the company aims at raising $10 million to expand its product line as well as meet the sale targets.

What makes Mota Group a potential success is its unique business idea, the incorporation of artificial intelligence and blockchain into drones. As both technologies are the pinnacle of the post-modern tech world, the Regulation A+ IPO is may attract the seasoned investors as well as new investors.And best of all, MOTA is planning to offer a payment service that will accept credit and debit cards.

So, for non-U.S. investors with plastic in hand, Regulation A+ IPO by Mota Group is not only an opportunity to be part of the stock market but also the potential to make profits from a booming drone industry.

The company has filed a Regulation A+ offering statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in regards to a sale of its common stock. Our SEC filing can be retrieved from http://go.mota.com/703.
