Ex-President Barack Obama signing a paper

We petitioned Congress to make Community Rounds legal in 2012...

...and got invited to watch President Obama make it real in the Jobs Act!

We're the first & largest

We've delivered the most money to founders via Community Rounds out of any competitor.

We petitioned Congress to legalize Community Rounds in 2012. Before that, only the wealthy were allowed to invest in pre-IPO companies.
