While Illinois intrastate crowdfunding officially became law in January of last year, it took well over 10 months to work through the administrative realities of actually conducting offerings. As a result, there was a delay in the ability for businesses to actually take advantage of the law. All that has changed, and Illinois crowdfunding is coming out strong in 2017.
