Join in the Expansion of Entrepreneurship 

Change the ways entrepreneurs fund their dreams.

Every day an entrepreneur comes to StartEngine with a business unlike any we've seen before. 


If on Monday we meet a clean energy innovator, on Tuesday we're talking to a swimsuit disruptor. If on Wednesday we meet the mind behind a new urban transit system, on Thursday we're hearing about a new social media platform. By Friday, it's a car, a truck, a car that looks like a truck or runs like a bike, a restaurant, a satchel, or an app that helps you turn off all your other apps. 


There's always an idea out there that needs funding. And to date, we've helped companies raise over $35 million from the public.

To say nothing surprises us anymore just wouldn't be true. We're always surprised. The newness is what keeps us up at night, and gets us out of bed in the morning. We feel lucky to help so many entrepreneurs get closer to seeing their companies take off. There are nearly 6 million small businesses in the U.S., and just about all need more working capital. And some days it feels like we're watching a runaway train, on which the caboose just never shows up. 


StartEngine is fueled by a simple belief: funds for a new business should come from the exact people who will eventually reap its benefits—the public. We believe that great societal change can come from democratized access. Equal access to housing can make our communities safer. Equal access to education can help to develop some of tomorrow's greatest innovators. And now, equal access to capital can help businesses grow in the U.S.

StartEngine helps entrepreneurs raise capital from the public thanks to a radical piece of U.S. legislation called the JOBS Act (2012). Shorthand for the Jumpstart Our Business  Startups Act, the bipartisan initiative destroys common barriers that growing U.S. businesses have faced for decades.


At StartEngine, we leverage two sections of the JOBS Act to help companies source capital: Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A+. Both sections introduce new legislation that allows companies to offer equity, debt, revenue shares, or royalties through crowdfunding.


We're not venture capitalists, and we assume you aren't either. That shouldn't exclude either of us from being a part of something truly revolutionary. Glad you're here.

Democratize Capital for Business Owners

The crowd provides what VCs don't.

StartEngine was founded by two serial entrepreneurs, Howard Marks and Ron Miller, who knew, all too well, the fundraising challenges that face today's creative class. Unless you went to Stanford and are producing the next great SaaS app, it's going to be hard to raise from VCs.


Hundreds of entrepreneurs have told us how hard it is to raise capital through traditional means. We've heard too many stories of good ideas suffocating due to the cost of growth; Entrepreneurs have become used to hearing "no."


StartEngine allows entrepreneurs to raise large capital sums across large groups of people. This opportunity is truly game-changing for entrepreneurs of all types. For female founders, minority founders, or anyone with a nontraditional business pitch, equity crowdfunding is the great equalizer.

Why Raising Money Is Hard

What It's Like to Find Investors in the Crowd

Why They Chose StartEngine

"Indiegogo helped me launch, but StartEngine changed everything."

-Storm Sondors, CEO of SONDORS Electric Car

How StartEngine Makes Money

Small Online Public Offerings

StartEngine charges 6% of total capital raised for Small OPOs. This amount is charged to the company raising capital, and can sometimes vary depending on the investment (international and credit cards investment are charged more). This 6% fee is only applicable to raises through Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF).

Large Online Public Offerings

StartEngine charges companies either $50/unique investor + warrants or a $20,000/month + warrants hosting fee for all Large OPOs.

Full Service Support

StartEngine charges a fee to those who elect to have full on-boarding, consulting, and creative services.

Investor Management

StartEngine charges $3,000/year to companies who wish to enroll in our investor management system, StartEngine Secure.

Coming Soon...

StartEngine Secondary — Our platform will allow investors to sell and buy securities after the raise has ended.

ICOs — Our newest service will be helping businesses raise capital through registering their Initial Coin Offerings with the SEC.
The StartEngine Index — We will continue to track intricate data about equity crowdfunding, publish our findings and distribute through publications like the LA Business Journal.

Expand Access for Investors

It's like Shark Tank, except you're the shark.

Over 100,000 people use StartEngine to discover new companies in which they want to invest.


People who use StartEngine to invest in startups and early growth companies come from all different backgrounds. Both accredited and non-accredited investors are welcome to invest on the platform—and very often we have first time investors. We even accept credit cards.


Owning shares in new, private companies had been fairly exclusive for a long time: To get shares you either had to work for a stellar startup, or fund one with a large investment. But now, thanks to new legislation, people of all types can get in on these companies at relatively low minimums.

Over 95% of investors on StartEngine are non-accredited.

Food for thought: Accredited investors make up only 8% of the population but hold over 70% of the nation's wealth.

Photo: Early Adopter Meeting Washington D.C.

Investors on StartEngine come from every U.S. state, and 86 countries. 

Food for thought: In 2016, over 40% of all VC investments came only from San Francisco. 

Photo: Early Adopter Meeting Charlotte, NC

Over 35% of campaigns are for minority-led or female-led companies.

Food for thought: In 2016, only 4% of deals in Silicon Valley went to women, and <1% went to black founders.

"I already have a finance guy, and it's all too stuffy. I'd been talking to friends about getting more involved in my investing and StartEngine seemed like the ideal opportunity. It's more personal, and you get in on the ground floor."

Create Jobs

Because growth capital impacts at every level.

It's no coincidence that the legislation is called JOBS Act. By providing entrepreneurs with more access to capital funding, we're all able to  provide businesses with more means to hire and grow. 


According to Capital Crowdfunding Advisors, companies who successfully raised in Regulation Crowdfunding in its inaugural year added an average of 2.7 jobs to their companies. Overall, it accounted for a 35% employment growth. 


It's our mission to fund over 5,000 companies in the next five years. In doing so, we hope to spawn the creation of tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of jobs.

Pioneer FinTech

The OPO is the new IPO.

We coined the term "Online Public Offering" (OPO) because we are confident that the future of investing in startups will...

  1. take place online.
  2. be available to the entire public.
  3. be for private companies.

In so, we've built a platform that can accommodate all phases of the Online Public Offering:

  • The Campaign Editor allows companies to tell their stories dynamically and effectively.
  • The Investor Page allows investors to track all of their investments, to comment and ask questions directly of CEOs, and eventually to post their investments for sale.
  • Manage allows companies to effectively communicate with their new investors after a capital raise and handle some regulatory filings.
  • Sell/Buy investments (COMING SOON!) will allow investors to post their securities for sale and buy securities from other investors.

Revolutionize Crowdfunding

In just over a year, over $52M has been raised through Small OPOs.

Capital Raised via Small OPOs Since May 2016

Every month, StartEngine publishes The StartEngine Index—a report on equity crowdfunding in the U.S. We've found that over $52M has been raised in Small OPOs in the U.S. since May 2016.


And that's only for Small OPOs.


The other regulation under which StartEngine companies raise, Large OPOs, has accounted for over $400M in investments.


Momentum is building on the number of companies taking part as well. There were 3X campaigns launched on StartEngine in July 2017 than there were in January 2017.



And just as crowdfunding is on the rise, venture capital firms have seen a decrease in investments over the past three years. Though the billion dollar numbers still eclipse equity crowdfunding in the U.S., we believe the tides are shifting. Sources: Pitchbook and National Venture Capital Association. VentureBeatBizJournals.


If you add money brought in through ICOs, many estimates indicate that "crowdfunding" outperformed Venture Capital in August 2017.

And Be a Part of What's Next

The Trading Platform

The most frequent question we get is, "Can investors trade their shares?"

In the next quarter, the answer will be an emphatic "YES!" Investors will be able to sell shares bought via Large or Small OPOs. For those bought as Small OPOs, investors must wait one year before posting and selling.

ICOs

The second most frequent question we get is, "Can you do ICOs?"

We can. In August, we announced that we'll become the first U.S. platform to offer SEC-registered ICOs. It only makes sense as ICOs accounted for $1.3 billion in 2017 alone.

The StartEngine Index

Our Index is an entity of its own, which we hope to grow extensively in the next six months.

We intend to expand print publication to cities across the U.S. including San Diego, Chicago, and New York.

Our Plans for Your Investment

1. Build brand awareness for StartEngine via marketing and advertising efforts.

2. Make our product easier to use for investors and companies alike.

3. Hire top talent who will help us expand while delivering excellent service.

Marketing Expansion

To make all of our dreams (and the dreams of entrepreneurs across the country) come true, we need to get the word out there more than ever before. Our primary use of proceeds from this raise will be to market the StartEngine brand, and equity crowdfunding at scale. We intend to engage in robust digital marketing, television, radio, and print advertising. We are looking to hire more team members, and make our system more and more accessible to the public. After all—if nearly everyone can invest, shouldn't everyone know about StartEngine?

New Crowdfunding Rules Let the Small Fry Swim With Sharks
May 14, 2016

If you’ve always dreamed of being Mr. Wonderful from “Shark Tank,” now is your chance.

Is This the Proposal That Can Save Crowdfunding?
June 1, 2016

These are not risquée fly-by-night enterprises; they’re part of the crop of startups that have joined StartEngine, one of the first approved equity crowdfunding portals. Thanks to Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, which went into effect in mid-May, they can now raise money by soliciting small-time investors who want to purchase shares.

Equity Crowdfunding Platforms Go Live, One Deal at a Time
May 16, 2016

Anybody with a little bit of pocket money to invest could log onto StartEngine and buy shares in the first U.S. companies seeking to raise money under Title III of the Jobs Act, a Santa Monica-based outfit called Gigmor and Bloomery Investment Holdings, which is actually a distillery in West Virginia.

Updates

StartEngine Crowdfunding Inc. shareholder update: 2018 financial results from Q1 and Q2

3 months ago

Dear Owners,

I am inspired by the work our team had done so far this year.  We are just scratching the surface of what is possible in changing how companies raise capital.  I am pleased to announce our results for the first half of 2018.  

Our revenue increased to $2,421,061 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 (“Interim 2018”) from $770,668 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 (“Interim 2017”), an increase of 214%. StartEngine Premium, which began recognizing revenue in the second quarter of 2017, contributed $691,000 to the increase in revenue. This growth was also driven by event and sponsorship revenue of approximately $301,000 related to the StartEngine ICO 2.0 Summit in April 2018, Regulation Crowdfunding platform fees of approximately $295,000, Regulation D platform fees of approximately $266,000 primarily related to the tZERO Initial Coin Offering, and other campaign-related services of approximately $333,000. These increases were partially offset by lower Regulation A platform fees of approximately $177,000.

Cost of revenue increased to $1,150,009 for Interim 2018 from $233,375 for Interim 2017, an increase of 393%. Our cost of revenue increased primarily as a result of higher transaction costs of approximately $299,000 due to increased campaign volume, higher payroll costs of approximately $256,000 due to an expanded account services team, and higher contractor costs of approximately $155,000 related to campaign copywriting, legal, and accounting services. Our gross margins decreased to 68.2% for Interim 2018 from 79.7% for Interim 2017.

Our operating expenses consist of general and administrative expenses (primarily salaries, stock-based compensation, office rent, legal services and accounting services), sales and marketing expenses, and research and development expenses. Operating expenses totaled $3,085,707 for Interim 2018 from $1,538,880 for Interim 2017, an increase of 101%. 

As a result, net loss increased to $1,806,632 from $1,085,941 for Interim 2017 and Interim 2018, respectively. As of June 30, 2018, the company received $3,937,157 in net proceeds from the Regulation A offering.

I want to thank you for your ongoing support and help.  We could have not achieved so much without your trust in us.

StartEngine’s Thought Leadership Now on Forbes.com

7 months ago

Dear Owners,

I’m writing today with exciting news. This week, I published my first article as a contributor with Forbes.

This a huge milestone for StartEngine and for the expansion of our thought leadership. It comes in addition to my ongoing contributions to Hacker Noon, a tech-oriented blog on Medium, as well as those for The Mission and Next Web. Through my writing on these outlets (and now Forbes), I educate readers about the future of the ICO space and entrepreneurial funding.

My first article for Forbes is What To Know Before Going Into Venture Debt, and in it I discuss the pitfalls of venture debt. I want your help in continuing to expand our thought leadership. As a supporter of and advocate for StartEngine, please read my article and share it with your networks. 

Meanwhile, our OWN campaign draws closer to its $5-million goal by the day. We anticipate reaching our goal and close the campaign to new investors in only a matter weeks. So, if you’ve yet to invest or have been considering adding to your present commitment, act soon.

Best,

Howard

Huge Milestone Crossed, Another Within Reach

8 months ago

Last Friday, StartEngine held its second ICO 2.0 Summit. It was a resounding success, with over 1,000 investors, entrepreneurs and professionals in attendance. The StartEngine team worked tirelessly for months to make it happen, and their dedication resulted in one of the best conferences the ICO space has ever seen.

After the summit, I hosted our very first Owners Dinner, which was open to those who have invested over $5,000 in StartEngine. It was exciting and enlightening to meet these investors in an intimate setting and discuss StartEngine and its future. We hope to entertain even more investors at our next Owners Dinner, which will take place during our next summit in October.

On behalf of the team, I want to thank all of you who have invested in our OWN campaign for making such a successful event and pivotal moment in StartEngine’s history possible. Our OWN campaign is now in the home stretch, and we’re drawing closer and closer to our $5-million goal by the day. 

If you’d like to be an honored guest at our next ICO 2.0 Summit in October and to be at the table for our next Owners Dinner, act quickly. Make or expand your investment today, and become more deeply involved in the StartEngine community and all of the exciting things happening around it!

Best,

Howard

Time Is Running Out

8 months ago

We are fast approaching the $5-million goal for our own raise, and the window for new investments is closing. If you’re already invested, consider expanding your holding. If you haven’t made or completed an investment, then choose to get involved before it’s too late. 

We recently closed a very successful first quarter, for which we’ll be sharing the unaudited financials shortly. Next week, our ICO 2.0 Summit kicks off in Santa Monica, where we’re expecting a thousand attendees in person and thousands more online. If you can’t join us, then be sure to tune in to our livestream. I’m set to announce some big news about the future of StartEngine during my keynote address.

In 2018 we’re shifting into high gear, and I want you join us as an investor. Be our colleague as we disrupt finance by democratizing access to capital.

Howard

The Last Mile

9 months ago

The last mile. We have crossed the last milestone is our raise, shooting past $4 million.  

This is truly a shared success, as we are all owners in this company. Raising capital is critical for fast-growing companies like ours, and given our big plans for 2018 and beyond, we feel blessed to have investors like you and the means to execute our vision.

The real question is this, though... How long will it take us to reach the $5-million goal? 

Share your best guess using this link, and I’ll publish the results next week. I can’t wait to see what our community of owners thinks about our raise’s fast-approaching finish line!

Best, 

Howard

2018: A Year of Immense Growth

9 months ago

Dear Owners,

We are almost at the end of the first quarter of 2018. Time is flying by, but we remain focused on our next challenge: the ICO 2.0 Summit on April 20th. This event is immensely important, because it will enable us to expand upon our thought leadership in the blockchain and crypto spaces. 

As you may have heard, many companies raised capital using Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) but failed to follow regulatory rules. As a result, they find themselves on perilous ground. The good news is that StartEngine is uniquely poised to educate, assist and offer services to these companies and their CEOs.

If you are planning to come to the ICO 2.0 Summit, I look forward to meeting you. If you can’t make it in person, there will be a livestream of all the day’s events available through our website. 

Truly, 2018 is shaping up to be year of immense growth for us, with many initiatives still to be announced. The goal is simple, though. We want StartEngine to become the industry leader in helping companies to raise capital through ICOs within the securities rules.

Recently, you may have seen an email requesting your enrollment into our StartEngine Champions program. This program will help us to further market our brand by making use of our most valuable assets: engaged investors like you. 

If you have not already, I hope you will sign up. We can certainly use your help!

 

Best,

Howard

StartEngine Launches First Regulated ICO

9 months ago

Dear Owners,

I’m very happy to share that tZERO has launched on StartEngine. This is a significant development, as tZero has an incredibly high profile in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space. 

With this announcement we feel confident that our position in the marketplace has been enhanced. We’re now looking forward to speaking with other prospective Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) who see this announcement as an endorsement of what we’ve been working toward for the past three years.

Currently, many companies are choosing to raise capital using an ICO. The Wall Street Journal reported that over $6B was raised in 2017, and over $1B was raised in the first month of 2018.

The ICO marketplace is going through important changes, though. This is due in large part to the SEC citing many ICOs for conducting non-compliant securities sales.

At StartEngine, we’re well positioned to address this issue, as we have been operating under the rules set forth by the JOBS Act, which are implemented by the SEC. In our opinion, these guidelines offer the ICO marketplace the regulated solution that it’s been looking for.

Our team continues to dream big, and we’re working tirelessly to make StartEngine the best regulated ICO and equity crowdfunding platform for our clients and investors. I look forward to meeting some of you who will be in attendance for the ICO 2.0 Summit on April 20th in Santa Monica. 

Best, 

Howard

PS: Don’t worry if you can’t make the summit! We’ll be livestreaming all of the panels, keynotes and discussions for those who can’t attend in person.

A Big Milestone

10 months ago

Dear Owners,

We released the StartEngine January Index, and guess what? We’re now neck-and-neck with WeFunder in total number of Small OPO campaigns launched. (Only a year ago we were a distant second.)

What made this growth possible?  

We have been focused on improving the service we offer companies, and word is getting around. Entrepreneurs say we offer service that’s superior to our competitors and that the platform we’ve built offers the key features they need to grow their raises. This year, we will continue to improve and expand upon our services. In addition, we’ll host even more events online and in-person where you can interact with us, including at the StartEngine ICO 2.0 Summit on April 20th!

But first, I invite you to join me during our next livestream on Wednesday, March 21st at 10 AM PST. These livestreams present a great opportunity for you to hear about the latest developments at StartEngine and also to get your questions answered. You can register here

One more thing... I’d like to ask you to spread the word about StartEngine among your friends. Many of you know entrepreneurs who are looking to raise capital, and we’re here to help. I’ve found that some of our best referrals come directly from our network of owners, and I thank all of you for your continued investment in StartEngine’s success!


Best, 

Howard

Want a Glimpse into 2018?

11 months ago

Dear Owners,

It was my honor and pleasure to speak to 165 new StartEngine shareholders during our recent livestream. In particular, it was exciting to hear all of your  questions. They demonstrate just how enthusiastic our shareholders are, and that’s why I would like to summarize some of the key points I addressed last week:

  • Our unaudited and preliminary results from 2017 show a revenue increase of 669% year over year.

  • We introduced several new services, which generated close to $700,000 in new forms of revenue.

  • While we are still not yet profitable, we were able to contain our burn while growing revenue and the operations of the company.

Many shareholders had questions about the $1,000 minimum-investment threshold for our 10% bonus share program for new offerings on StartEngine.  Their biggest concern was if one could add to their investment in order to cross the $1,000 eligibility threshold . The answer is YES, and we hope many of you take advantage of this exciting opportunity..

Our next livestream will be held on February 7 at 10 AM PST, and I hope you will be able to join us! We’ll be discussing some of the new and exciting services we’re planning to introduce later on this year and next.

Best, 

Howard

Goodbye to a Successful 2017

about 1 year ago

To the StartEngine community,


With the holidays in sight, the entire StartEngine team is thrilled to be closing our best year in the company’s history. And we’re still reeling from the success of the first StartEngine ICO 2.0 Summit. 500 people attended in person to hear from 35+ panelists and from 17 companies who presented their own ICOs. And it wasn’t just the audience in Santa Monica — over 5,000 people tuned in online from around the world.


We expect by year’s end to have launched over 100 companies in 2017 — almost 10x as many than those launched in 2016. Last month alone, 27 companies were added to the platform. This kind of growth is a testament to how hard our team is working, and how committed we are to helping entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.


2017 has introduced a new era for capital formation for small businesses. Every day we hear from CEOs who are excited with the prospect of raising capital from their fans, customers, and the public. StartEngine provides a feeling of liberation for those hard working entrepreneurs who previously could have been discouraged by the lack of capital available to them. 


We started to raise capital for our own company on our own platform because we believe in what we do. We are joining the 105+ companies who have successfully raised on our website. 


We will keep you informed this month, and in the new year, with updates about the progress of our business. We are all looking forward to 2018. Big plans to come! 


Best, 

Howard

It's a Big Month for Regulated ICOs

about 1 year ago

Happy Monday, investors (and those soon-to-be),


As you likely know, StartEngine plans to be the first platform of our kind to host regulated ICOs. We’re so impressed by the transformative entrepreneurs who are embarking on this new way of raising capital. And we’re equally taken with the lawyers who will help businesses do so compliantly.

This is all to say, ICOs are on the mind. Check out what we’ve got in the works this month:

  1. Tomorrow, October 24 — CoinAgenda Global Summit
    StartEngine CEO Howard Marks and team will be in Las Vegas at the CoinAgenda Global SummitVegas bound? Look for us!

  2. Wednesday, October 25 — Weekly ICO Seminar
    Every week we host an online seminar about ICOs. Join us this week to learn more. 

  3. Friday, November 10 — The StartEngine ICO 2.0 Summit 
    The big event is quickly approaching! Our roster of companies pitching ICOs is building. Click here to buy your ticket before they sell out.




A lot of you have asked what StartEngine is doing with ICOs and what it means for the future of our business. Stay tuned for more updates, and don’t hesitate to comment with questions.


Thank you for investing in the future of finance.

Welcome to StartEngine’s 434 Newest Owners

about 1 year ago

Every Friday we have an all-hands meeting at StartEngine HQ.


No laptops. No phones. 


We sit around a big table, discussing the status of our goals. We speak in hard metrics—everything from revenue to customer satisfaction has a number, and we track quantitative data to answer our business’ most pressing questions:

 

“How can we better help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams?”

“How can we help investors have better and more fruitful experiences?”

“How can we transform capital?”

 

I opened this week’s meeting with an awesome metric—in just 7 days over $660K had been invested in StartEngine by over 434 investors. Wow! What a showing of support for innovation, entrepreneurship, and democratizing capital.

 

In a way, our weekly team meeting had grown exponentially. 

 

It felt as though we had 434 new seats at the table.

 

We cannot wait for all that's coming next at StartEngine. With new companies every day, and the huge buzz around The StartEngine ICO 2.0 Summit and StartEngine Secondary, we want you to be a part of this revolution. Join us today to become an owner in the future of StartEngine, and in the future of finance.

 

Howard Marks

CEO, StartEngine
