Channing Porter
Channing Porter
Co-Founder, CEO, Director

Born in Texas and raised in North Carolina and Virginia, Channing is a southern girl with a heart of exploration and discovery. While attending the University of Virginia, Channing chose to join the Southwestern Company, a summer sales and leadership program. She excelled in running her own business selling educational books and software to families across the country and taught others to do the same. After college, she backpacked through Europe and Southeast Asia, sold art on cruise ships, ran her own textbook buyback business, lived in the jungles of Cambodia, and was a producer for a boutique creative agency in New York City. She believes all of these unique experiences challenged her and led her to her current path. For the past three years, Channing’s pursuits have focused on renewable energy and teaching sales expertise to non-profits and social enterprises in the developing world. In 2014, she chose to move to California and become an Energy Advisor with Vision Solar. Throughout her time in the solar industry, she has also maintained a position as a Sales Consultant with Whitten and Roy Partnership since April 2013. This work has taken her to Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Honduras where she has built sales strategies and tools, led sales trainings, and coached sales managers for organizations that take business marketing approaches to solving poverty issues by selling life saving products in sanitation, hygiene, clean energy, and clean water. This experience also opened her heart to service and her eyes to how a for-profit business could make a more sustainable impact in areas traditionally reserved for non-profits. She loves to sing to Hamilton as loud as she can in her car and believes in sustainably buying clothes from thrift stores. According to the Gallup StrengthsFinder test, these are Channing's top five strengths: 1. Input 2. Connectedness 3. Empathy 4. Restorative 5. Adaptability

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
