Indiegogo Allowing Anyone to Invest in Startups & Growing Companies
The global platform for entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to life, has launched a new equity crowdfunding service allowing anyone to invest in startups and growing companies.
Indiegogo has created a joint venture with MicroVentures to launch an equity crowdfunding portal. MicroVentures is a leader in the equity crowdfunding space and has helped companies raise over $100M through 200+ deals since 2010. More than 95% of the equity crowdfunding campaigns on MicroVentures have been funded.
Investment opportunities will be listed on both Indiegogo and MicroVentures, with the transaction being made on the MicroVentures platform. Startups that run their equity crowdfunding campaign through this new service also benefit from a simple regulatory filing process powered by iDisclose, which automates legal document preparation through an online questionnaire.
Indiegogo has helped entrepreneurs raise more than $1 billion from over 8 million backers through 700,000 rewards-based crowdfunding campaigns. With more than 15 million visitors to Indiegogo every month, the company is now well-positioned to rapidly expand the market for investment crowdfunding by introducing both investors and entrepreneurs to the new equity opportunities.
