What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding is a way for you to invest in early stage Startups. You can invest anywhere from $10 - $107,000 across all crowdfunding campaigns ("offerings") in a 12-month period in return for a proportionate amount of equity from the Startup ("Issuer"). Note the related U.S. law (often referred to as Regulation Crowdfunding or Reg CF) caps the maximum you can invest in crowdfunding campaigns based on your income and net worth. And, some Startups may set investment minimums higher than $10. Read more about Reg CF here and here.
Investments in private Startups were once only available to accredited investors, venture capitalists (VCs) or banks, leaving the vast majority of us to wait for an IPO or – more often than not – miss out completely. But the early stage investment market has begun opening to the public thanks to the U.S. JOBS Act Title III, which allows these investments to be made through a registered crowdfunding intermediary. Fundify’s innovative funding portal is an authorized crowdfunding intermediary that’s registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
Our sophisticated platform simplifies Startup funding for Founders and Startup investing for individuals, groups (like angel groups) and entities.
