On December 1, 2014, for the first time in 80 years, Texas-based startups and entrepreneurs will be able to sell private equity shares to all residents living Texas. In addition, all parties will be able to use mass marketing to advertise and publicize their equity investment opportunities using media outlets that focus on Texas Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), which are home to more than 26 million potential customers.

Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) Population
Houston – The Woodlands – Sugar Land 6,484,279
Dallas – Plano – Richardson – Irving 4,627,393
Fort Worth – Arlington – HEB 2,358,186
San Antonio – New Braunfels 2,334,363
Austin-Round Rock 1,938,858
McAllen-Edinburg-Mission 862,768
El Paso 862,638
Killeen-Temple 445,356
Corpus Christi 443,351
Brownsville-Harlingen 439,437
Beaumont-Port Arthur 413,982
Lubbock 304,682
Laredo 275,686
Amarillo 265,821
Waco 260,728
College Station-Bryan 246,910
Longview 226,407
Tyler 222,781
Abilene 170,164
Wichita Falls 152,426
Midland 150,721
Odessa 145,960
Sherman-Denison 125,901
San Angelo 113,969
Victoria 96,883
Texarkana 93,457
Total:   24,063,107

Approximately 20 million of these customers are over the age of 18 and will be able to invest up to $5,000 per year in private equity placements. Once the state educates its residents and new investors become Internet savvy investors, Texas will represent a $100 billion per year pool of venture capital that small businesses and entrepreneurs can use to raise start up funding.

This will prove to be a boon for the large majority of ideas and business plans that are currently being rejected or ignored by the states 70+ business accelerators and incubators.

Any business that has received the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) rubber stamp to be pre-approved for SBA loans should strongly consider opening a business in Texas. Franchisors and franchises are the perfect business model to help franchisees raise money using the new Texas crowdfunding rules. Unlike many startups that will have an unproven track record, franchises with 5 or more profitable locations should be able to provide investors with a better than average chance of success.

Rural areas are a prime target for economic development in Texas where the demand is present for new restaurants, movie theaters, shopping malls, trampoline parks, entertainment venues, but until now have not had access to traditional venture capital due to their location.
