The largest Regulation Crowdfunding platform by every measure “"Kickstarter for investing" was legalized on May 16th, 2016: now, anyone can invest $100 in a startup or local business. Since then, we have become the largest Regulation Crowdfunding platform, larger than all of our competitors combined. We’ve been preparing since 2012, when we helped pass the JOBS Act that made this all possible, and were invited by Congress to watch it signed into law in the Rose Garden.OUR AMBITION We aim to revitalize capitalism and keep the American dream alive. GDP growth is slowing. Wealth inequality is increasing. Entrepreneurship is dying across America; falling from 10.6% to 3.6% among those under 30 since 1989. We aim to reverse these trends by funding more deserving businesses. Our goal is to build a new type of stock market ("a NASDAQ for riskier ventures") that lets markets allocate capital to a wide range of businesses, more efficiently than banks or VC's.
