Rule 144 is the most common exemption that allows the resale of unregistered securities in the public stock market, which is otherwise illegal in the U.S. The regulation gives a specific set of conditions that a shareholder must meet in order to sell unregistered, "restricted," or "controlled" securities in the public marketplace.
For a shareholder to sell securities (such as stock, bonds, equities) on the public stock market, the securities and sale need to be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

What Is a Shell Corporation?
A shell corporation is a company with financial assets but no significant business activity. Shell corporations don't create products, hire employees, or generate revenue.

What Is Carried Interest?
Carried interest, also known as carry, is a share in the profits that general partners receive in compensation for the management of a venture capital fund. These profits can be long-term gains, dividends, short-term gains, or interest and total 20 to 25 percent of the fund's profits. However, general partners aren't required to invest their own money. Instead, these funds are intended as motivation for a general partner that are only available at the sale of the fund.
The best way to picture carried interest is through an example. Imagine you give a friend $100 to put on roulette when they go to Vegas, and they win $200. If you agreed to a 20 percent cut for your friend, you'll pay $20 on the interest. This is how carried interest works.

What is Vesting?
Vesting is the process where an employee or founder earns shares over time. This means rather than having immediate equity in a company, you earn a percentage of shares on a monthly (or quarterly) basis over time. Vesting protects a company from giving up too much equity to someone who spends only a short time with the company.
Why Do Founders Need Vesting?
In most cases, if you apply for venture capital, you will be required to have a vesting schedule for your stock. The good newsis in nearly all cases, you get credit for "time" that you've invested into the company. For example, if you have

The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, or JOBS Act, is a law signed into effect by President Obama in 2012, designed to promote the growth of jobs in small businesses. Its goal is to make it easier for startups to raise the money and equity they need to grow, and give startups and small businesses more access to capital.
Why Is the JOBS Act Important?
The JOBS Act has seven sections overall, but three key sections are pertinent to investors.
Title II allows public advertisements of securities offerings to accredited investors.
Title III opens the door to equity crowdfunding directed at the general public and gives non-accredited investors more opportunities to invest in startups.
