View Our 2017 Financial Earnings
When we announced we’d be offering StartEngine shares to the public on our own site, we were eight months into a runaway year.
Record numbers of companies were raising capital, investors were fueling a hot streak of million dollar raises, and hundreds of thousands of people, like you, were becoming aware of the potential provided through the JOBS Act.
But the numbers presented in our application mostly speak to none of that — they’re primarily for 2016 and 2015.
Here’s what 2017 brought:
Revenue is up.
2017 revenue was $2,053,737*. That’s a 566% increase from 2016.
Burn is down.
Cash burn averaged $131,629* per month. Average monthly burn was 53% less than last year.
Services are diversifying.
5 new services were introduced in 2017, accounting for $700,577 in new forms of revenue*.
And more entrepreneurs are finding capital than ever before!
In 2017, 61 companies reached their funding goals on StartEngine—well beyond numbers seen in previous years.
What we’re experiencing is a cultural shift. Business owners are moving away from the dependencies created by venture capitalists and toward the potential of the crowd. Hundreds of entrepreneurs came through our offices in 2017; thousands joined our online community. We’re so excited to see what comes next, and we hope you join us for the ride!
