What Makes StartEngine Unique?

Our leadership has a proven track record.

Our Co-Founder & CEO Howard Marks previously co-founded the video game company Activision, which has a multi-billion dollar market cap. Our Strategic Advisor Kevin O’Leary, or “Mr. Wonderful,” is a renowned businessman and investor.

We lead by example.

StartEngine itself has raised over $60M from the crowd, and we allow our 30,000+ shareholders to trade. We use that firsthand experience to help our customers raise capital.

Seed funding to trading, all in one place.

Companies can raise their first funding round on StartEngine and later give their shareholders the opportunity to trade, all on the same site.
