It’s about more than money
Crowdfunding is personal for us because it creates another path for startups to receive funding, and most importantly, it gives everyday people the ability to participate in the private equity market. While the JOBS Act was designed to modernize American securities laws in order to facilitate economic growth; crowdfunding sparks innovation, has an inclusive reach and a powerful ripple effect on local communities. It represents more than money: crowdfunding creates jobs, gives passionate entrepreneurs a realistic shot and lets the community support businesses they love. It’s ‘loyal money’ because everyday investors are the evangelists who truly believe in a startup and passionately shout it from the rooftops.
We’re proud of crowdfunding:
- Has a 60% successful raise rate, compared to VC’s, which hovers around 6.5%.
- Offers women and minorities better access to capital, with higher success rates.
- Creates 2.9 jobs per issuer, on average.
We’re thrilled to serve disenfranchised investors flexible opportunities that go beyond their grandfather’s rigid investing structure. People can now invest online through Federally-regulated portals.
