Regulation A+ vs. Regulation D

Regulation A,B,C,D…….Z! Does one need to be a lawyer to navigate the capital raising process in the US? The most frequently asked question is what is the difference between Regulation A+ and Regulation D. The main difference is that Regulation D is for accredited investors (and a select few non-accredited investors) whereas Regulation A+ can be used to raise capital from non-accredited investors.
