"Kickstarter for investing" was legalized on May 16th, 2016. Now, anyone can invest $100 in the next Uber or local coffee shop... not just the rich. Businesses can raise capital from their friends and neighbors instead of only risk-adverse banks or out-of-touch venture capitalists. We’ve been preparing for this since 2012, when we helped pass the JOBS Act that made this all possible, and were invited by Congress to watch it signed into law in the Rose Garden.
We're the dominate player in the Regulation Crowdfunding industry. We're larger than all our competitors combined, 5 times over. We have 87% of successfuly funded companies, 89% of the funding volume, and ~90% of the investors. To date, we've funded 132 startups with over $25.5 million.
We aim to revitalize capitalism and keep the American dream alive. GDP growth is slowing. Wealth inequality is increasing. Entrepreneurship is dying across America; falling from 10.6% to 3.6% among those under 30 since 1989. We aim to reverse these trends by funding more deserving businesses. Our goal is to build a new type of stock market ("a NASDAQ for riskier ventures") that lets markets allocate capital to a wide range of businesses, more efficiently than banks or VC's.
Want to help? Join us! We're a team of founder types: enjoy autonomy, responsibility, the opportunity to learn, and no red tape. Just make it happen.

Every Wednesday, we invite our friends to dinner - some of the most talented founders in SF - and feed them steak and scotch whisky. It's a great opportunity to make new friends and learn from the best.
We really like working together. We inspire each other to learn, not only just work-wise, but in topics as diverse as kick-boxing, neuroscience, and chess. We're all curious and hungry. We work hard, but that doesn't mean it needs to feel like work.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with why you'd like to work for us, and provide links to your work. Brownie points: include a survival skill you'd offer the team in a post-apocalyptic world.
