Learnings from $11.4 million of Equity Crowdfunding raises from mostly unaccredited investors

Learnings from $11.4 million of Equity Crowdfunding raises from mostly unaccredited investors

by PAULNIEDERER on JUNE 29, 2014, Success leaves clues. I wondered, what is “Best in Class” in raising funds from predominantly retail or unaccredited investors. Best way to find out was to look at 16 of the most successful, recentStartup equity raises on the ASSOB Equity funding Capital Raising platform. These 16 raised over 11 million dollars together on ASSOB. Most of these companies were after their first capital, meaning there was usually some sweat equity already, maybe some family money, but most were not ready for Angels or VC’s. Thats why they came to ASSOB.   Bootstrap, then ASSOB, then Angels then VC’s.   Lets determine what is “Best in Class” from the sixteen recent ASSOB raises that raised on total $11.4 million. Raise size. $425,000…

What we can learn about Equity Crowdfunding “Title III” raises from other jurisdictions

What we can learn about Equity Crowdfunding “Title III” raises from other jurisdictions

By PAULNIEDERER on APRIL 20, 2014 While equity crowdfunding for unaccredited investors is not yet legal in the U.S.A. until Title III is passed, it is alive and well in other jurisdictions. Capital raising from unaccredited investors takes place every day. The two most active countries in equity crowdfunding or raising capital with the support of unaccredited investors are Australia (8 years) and the United Kingdom (3 years). ASSOB in Australia and Crowdcube in the United Kingdom have enough runs on the board to pass on some capital raising lessons to us. Each operates equity crowdfunding under differing legislation but in reality both have established…

CrowdFunding – the Future Face

CrowdFundBeat By Bryan Vadas, ipledg, CFB  Guest Contributor, March 19, 2014 – A recent article in CrowdFundBeat by Paul Niederer of ASSOB took a look of what crowd funding might be like by 2020, both from an investment and pledge-model perspective. As with any good futurist’s work, the projections don’t say how it will be for sure, but raise some discussion points around how, from a church spire view of current proceedings, the landscape may look given the emerging trends and developments in technology. From how individuals refer to crowd funding to how corporations will use it, we see that the sector will be in…
