May 16 will be an important day for entrepreneurs. That's when rules for equity crowdfunding go into effect.

In this first episode of Crowdfund with Cat, Alon Hillel-Tuch, a co-founder of the crowdfunding platform RocketHub, walks us through what equity crowdfunding is and how it’s different from the more traditional donation-based crowdfunding. RocketHub was acquired by entrepreneurship resource center EFactor a year ago. Since then, Hillel-Tuch has left and is now a partner at the venture building group, Stacked VB.
