Illinois Secretary of State requires all entrepreneurs raising money through truCrowd Illinois must claim an exemption from registration by filing a Form, post summaries of their offerings and offering disclosures on at least 21 days before launch of the campaign. The offering disclosures should include risk factors, a description of the business, operations, and management and other information.
