Debt and equity crowdfunding information portal launches new site with new domain, hopes for greater exposure for crowdfund investing opportunities.
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (PRWEB) AUGUST 06, 2015
Crowdfund.co announces the launch of a new website, including new design. The new site upgrade, includes a newly acquired domain–Crowdfund.co–replacing the former Crowdfundraiser.com. Company management hopes the move will help the firm gain more exposure online as well as deep-seat the company within the industry as expert professionals in crowdfunded private offerings.
“We’re excited about the possibilities with this new domain and website,” says Director, Nate Nead. “The new domain should not only help us gain more exposure for private capital raising, but it will also provide a great tool for company branding purposes.” The company has been rigorously focused in growing its accredited investor database so as to facilitate more rapid deal flow.
As always, the company recognizes the bottleneck is most often concentrated on finding interested investors for a particular offering. “Of course, we filter to ensure the deals we’re presenting are qualified and appropriately structured , but we’re most interested in finding investors with very specific investment profiles that may match some of the deals we’re currently seeing and those deals that we’ll most assuredly be seeing in the future,” Nead says.
The company remains tightly focused on Reg A+ offerings for private companies. The new Regulation A+ offerings–often abbreviated as Reg A+ –allow for private company issuers to raise up to $50 million from both accredited and unaccredited investors alike. In most instances, Regulation A+ actually preempts state blue sky registration laws, making it easier to generally solicit and sell directly to investors in numerous states without the need to register state-by-state. “It’s truly a game-changer in how issuers can and will raise capital for their companies,” says Nead.
While Regulation A+ is expected to work well for some issuers, it’s expected Title III of the equity crowdfunding bill will have a more weighty impact long term on the ability to raise capital from the masses. “Our focus, as always, will be on what’s best for the business and how do we get capital in the most cost advantaged way possible,” Nead says. “Fortunately, crowdfunding helps lower the cost of capital, but hurdles still remain, especially for the smallest most nascent companies.” When the time comes that small debt and equity financings can be facilitated legally and efficiently, Crowdfund.co hopes to be able to provide assistance. “Until then, we’ll continue to look for the unicorn ‘mini-IPO’ offerings with Reg A+. This new site will hopefully be a good basis for getting the word out.”
