OUR

VALUES

We’re in the business of helping other businesses raise capital from their customers, friends, and the adventurous investors in the StartEngine community. No one’s been doing this longer than we have.

WHY BUSINESSES NEED THE CROWD

Access to Capital

There are nearly 6 million businesses in the US that need capital to grow. A great idea shouldn’t fail because they can’t raise the money to develop into a profitable business.

Finance is Outdated

Existing financing options, such as private equity and venture capital, can’t fund all of these businesses. That’s where we come in.

Democratizing Funding

We believe that any driven entrepreneur with a great idea should be able to raise capital. We’ve built a platform where they can pitch directly to the crowd.
