StartEngine Scout Program

Know of a company looking to raise capital? 


Intro them to StartEngine and earn $1,000 in cash if they work with us. And better yet – we’ll give the company you refer $1,000 to use on their campaign marketing. That’s what we like to call a win-win situation.

What Is StartEngine?

StartEngine is one of the largest platforms in the world for companies to find investors and raise capital.

How the Program Works

Sign up

Sign up for the StartEngine Scout Program by filling out the form above.

Step Two

Introduce StartEngine

We'll reach out to you for an e-introduction to the Founder.

Step Three

Receive $1,000

When your referral signs with StartEngine, you'll receive $1,000 within 30 days. And, as an added bonus, we'll contribute $1,000 to their campaign marketing spend.

If you refer a company and you are also raising capital on StartEngine, then you will receive $2,000 to spend on your marketing campaign instead of $1,000 cash.

Step Four

Founder receives $1,000

When your referral launches on StartEngine, we'll give the founder $1,000 to spend on marketing their campaign.

Why Did You Refer a Company?

"I had invested in the company only a few weeks before and became one of their advisors. Clearly I thought they were impressive enough to deserve my investment, but they still needed more investors to grow and meet the market demand for their product. So, being familiar with how StartEngine helps companies raise money, and with the added benefit of a referral fee, it was a no-brainer!"

— Anthony Russell, MD MBA MPH
