Hello everyone, I have a question about the laws that affect venture capitalists here in the U.S. as I am looking to start a business that will require in-depth knowledge about what laws affect them (I myself am not looking to be a VC). What are all the major legal restrictions that exist for them?

For example, I have heard that U.S. law requires that one have a certain amount of assets in order to be a venture capitalist. So does that mean that if you are below a certain threshold in terms of assets that you may not legally invest in a company in exchange for some equity in the business?

Thanks a lot in advance and I look forward to some good responses

um,no. Wikipedia is your friend. Some good info there. No legal requirement to my knowledge as to amount of assets required. All anyone needs to invest in a business is enough money or credit to buy the stock or other ownership interest one wants to buy.
