General Assembly in July 2016, startups in North Carolina can now raise up to $2 million from average investors using their own web site or a registered funding portal. A further simplified option, called the Local Public Offering (LPO), permits raising up to $250,000, without use of a web site and this provision will sunset April 1, 2020.
