Crowditz Introduces First Data Aggregation Platform for the Equity Crowdfunding Industry
New Platform Launches with a Mission to Match Potential Investors With Deals Across Equity Crowdfunding Platforms, Identify Industry Trends and Help Predict Outcomes for Crowdfunded Start-Ups
BOSTON, MA, November 7, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Crowditz LLC, a Boston-based data and software company unveiled www.crowditz.com, a platform which aggregates data from across the entire equity crowdfunding industry. Enabled by the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act), equity crowdfunding became a reality on May 16, 2016, when the individual investor was permitted to make small equity investments in early-stage companies.
“Equity Crowdfunding is growing quickly and looks to be a disruptive force in start-up investing with the potential to infuse a lot of new capital into the start-up ecosystem. Crowditz provides potential investors with a powerful lens into this fast-growing industry,” said Crowditz CEO Jon Finegold.
Today, Crowditz collects investment data from funding portals including MicroVentures, Netcapital, NextSeed, Republic, SeedInvest, StartEngine, truCrowd, and Wefunder. “We will continue to expand our coverage to include all crowdfunding platforms,” said Howard Schneider, Crowditz Chief Technology Officer. “Our software and data team dissects each opportunity to record the key elements and interactions about each deal. Our goal is to create a powerful data asset with a complete history of crowdfunding deals and investment activity that can be used to match investors with deals, identify trends and ultimately help predict outcomes.“
The Crowditz Fund Report, produced weekly examines all equity crowdfunding investment commitments for the previous week, identifying total dollars committed, commitment by platform, and the top ten companies receiving investment commitments. The Crowditz New Crowdfunding Deals Report is published weekly, providing a list of all new deals introduced in the previous week. Visitors can register on www.crowditz.com for alerts on new deals of interest.
“Equity Crowfunding is an emerging sea change to capital markets. Young professionals are looking to invest in companies that will define their generation. Many of these companies are not on the public markets and equity crowdfunding, along with the eventual introduction of secondary markets, will provide them with the opportunity to participate in the growth of these companies. It is Crowditz's mission to be a powerful tool for this new crop of investors,” said Alan Phillips, Crowditz's Chief Innovation Offices.
The Crowditz platform is available at www.crowditz.com.
