XY Findables Independently Raises Over $1 Million in Investments Through Equity Crowdfunding
Over 1,200 individuals invest in XY Findables under Regulation A+ of the JOBS Act
SAN DIEGO, October 5, 2017 (Newswire.com) - XY | The Findables Company™ announced today that it has raised more than $1,300,000 in funds from over 1,200 individual accredited and non-accredited investors in the year it has been raising funds through Regulation A+ of the Jump Start Our Small Businesses Act or “JOBS Act.” The vast majority of these investors were brought on board by the company itself, and not through a third-party equity crowdfunding portal. Total investments have increased by over 650 percent since the company left the StartEngine equity crowdfunding platform in February of 2017. More than $1.1 million of the $1.3 million in investments were raised directly through the company website. The company anticipates continued crowdfunding success in Q4 with new product launches and holiday sales increasing brand awareness.
XY is one of the few companies to successfully take on investors through Reg A+ without solely utilizing a 3rd party equity crowdfunding platform. Acquiring investors directly with an in-house team was a decision XY CEO Arie Trouw made early on. “We initially launched our equity crowdfunding campaign through a site called StartEngine,” says Trouw, “but we found that the benefits of being on a third party platform didn’t outweigh the complications and costs for the company and investors.”
Trouw, the company’s founder, believes equity crowdfunding fits XY’s vision and consumer-focused business models perfectly. “We chose to raise funds using the equity crowdfunding model because it gives everyday investors some of the same investment opportunities as large venture capital firms and a chance to be part of an exciting early stage company like XY,” says Trouw. “Our company got its start through Kickstarter, so it seemed like a perfect fit to allow our users to own part of a company and not just get the product that is being created. As a company with an already established product line and revenue stream, we were well-positioned to manage our campaign independently.”
