An Overview of Crowdfunding Investments.
Before we get into the details of how our data is created, a quick review of crowdfunding investments may be helpful.
Historically investments in private companies were limited to accredited investors. In 2016 the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued rules for the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act) that allowed non-accredited investors to invest in private companies. The new rules, often referred to as Reg CF, enabled private companies to utilize crowdfunding to raise a relatively small amount of capital (equity and/or debt) online from a large number of investors.
Reg CF offers an alternative for private companies looking to raise capital. If traditional fundraising methods are not available or too costly, entrepreneurs can now access smaller amounts of capital from both accredited and non-accredited investors.
Benefits of Crowdfunding Investments
One of the main benefits of Reg CF is it enables private companies to reach a large pool of investors that may not have been accessible through traditional fundraising methods. Private companies can tap into a broader network of potential investors, including those who may be passionate about their industry or product.
Reg CF can also provide exposure for a private company to a wider audience of potential investors, which may result in more brand awareness and credibility for the company.
Another benefit of Reg CF is the relatively low cost and ease of access compared to other fundraising methods. Reg CF allows small companies to access funding with minimal legal and administrative costs. This makes Reg CF a more affordable and efficient way to raise capital. Also, the use of online crowdfunding portals makes the process of fundraising more streamlined and accessible to a wider audience.
