What We Do

North Carolina startups and private businesses have a new and very effective way to raise capital online called Investment Crowdfunding. It is being used by entrepreneurs across the country to raise capital from both accredited and non-accredited investors, right from their phones. We create a community investing marketplace for startup founders, investors and entrepreneurial partners to be vested together to grow the regional economy.

Be vested where you live 

The world is run by entrepreneurs. Almost everything you see, visit, and use every day was once only an idea another person had. Most entrepreneurs need funding at some point beyond what they can provide for themselves.  Previously, companies could only raise investment capital from a small segment of the population. 

We now live in an exciting day and age in which new investment crowdfunding laws allow everyone to invest in private offerings, including Angel investors.  Both accredited and non-accredited individuals nationwide can invest in potential high-growth startups and private businesses here in their community.  “Investment Crowdfunding” is being used by thousands of entrepreneurs to raise billions of dollars in capital. 

While investing carries risks, the returns on private investments can often outperform the public stock market and you have opportunity to literally invest in your local community.  Are you ready to learn more?

Founders work with us to determine the best strategy for their business and prepare to raise capital
