In our last update, we noted that StartEngine raised the most capital for companies via Regulation Crowdfunding in the month of August. We decided to go back and crunch the numbers for the entire year. Here are the top 3 funding portals based on amount raised* via Reg CF since January 1st.
StartEngine has raised $40,786,372 (!).
Wefunder has raised $31,888,357.
Republic has raised $22,314,035.
We are proud to be a market leader so far in 2020 and help guide this emerging marketplace and gear up for the launch of our trading platform StartEngine Secondary in October.
We have raised over $1.2M in each of the past two weeks for StartEngine itself in our current offering, and we have welcomed over 1,700 new StartEngine Owners to our community. We are thrilled by our momentum. Let’s keep it up for the next XX days until our raise closes!

This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.
The StartEngine secondary market is still currently under development. Furthermore, once development is completed, if a company is qualified to list its securities on the market, there is no guarantee that a demand for these securities will exist. Even if a company does meet the requirements for listing its securities, we do not know the extent to which investor interest will lead to the development and maintenance of a liquid trading market. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investments for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral, if at all.
