What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding is a way for you to invest in early stage Startups, something that was reserved only for wealthy investors until recently.
Most people 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"). This investment limit is set by U.S. law (often referred to as Regulation Crowdfunding or Reg CF) and is based on your income and net worth. The investment limit does not apply to accredited Investors who can invest as much as they’d like. Note that some Startups may set investment minimums above $10; others may also set a maximum amount per Investor. Read more about Reg CF here and here.
The early stage investment market has begun opening to the public thanks to the U.S. JOBS Act Title III, which took effect in 2016 and 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.
