The Fundify Difference

(Investing in Startups is risky. You may multiply your money or lose it completely.)

Diversify Your Portfolio With Startups
Smaller Amounts in More OpportunitiesAccording to an independent study, the most successful angel Investors commit smaller amounts to a large number of Startups to increase the chance of investing in a future unicorn. Fundify aims to bring a diverse group of interesting investment opportunities to the market.
Invest for the Long-TermStartup investing is a long-term strategy. Plan to hold these investments for at least one year and more likely 5+ years.

Do I have to be an "accredited Investor"?
An accredited Investor is a person with high income, high net worth or specific professional qualifications, as defined by the SEC. You do not have to be accredited to invest on Fundify, thanks to recent legislative changes that enable anyone to invest in private companies and Startups. More.
How much can I invest in Startups?
The amount you can invest across all Reg CF campaigns in a 12-month period is capped by law between $2,200 and $107,000 based on your income and net worth. These limits do not apply to accredited Investors, who may invest any amount.
The Fundify platform simplifies investing by automatically calculating how much you qualify to invest and by tracking your remaining limit in real time once you have completed the Investor settings in your profile
In finance, a “unicorn” is a private company valued at $1 billion or more. Investors who get in early with Startups that become unicorns can realize significant returns.
Some good examples of recent unicorns are Airbnb (now public), Lyft (now public), Square and DoorDash (now public). There are more than 450 unicorns worldwide, according to CB Insights, May 2020.
Before equity crowdfunding, access to investing in potential unicorns was limited to accredited Investors or private equity firms.
Fundify’s platform now makes it possible to invest in a wide variety of Startups. There’s no guarantee that any investment you make will become a unicorn (most will not), but at least the opportunity is now there to review for yourself and invest in what you believe may have future potential. You can learn more about the risks in our Investor Educational Materials.
How much does it cost?
There’s no charge to invest on Fundify. We collect a success fee from Startups when they raise their target amount. More on Fundify’s Startup fees here.
How does equity crowdfunding differ from the stock market?
Companies offering equity through crowdfunding are usually small Startups that may have limited or no track record and little profits, if any. These investments are considered high risk, but they can offer the potential for high rewards if the Startup succeeds. People who find and invest in the next “unicorn” may realize significant gains.
By contrast, companies listed on the stock exchange have a more established track record, corporate structure and financial records. In a typical market, many public stocks are not considered high risk, but the potential for a big upswing in equity value is more limited. More.
