We track a basket of six global investment crowdfunding platforms. We update it each month. The following platforms are operating today; with the exception of CircleUp, each is open to all investors, regardless wealth. Collectively, they represent a nascent and growing industry that's democratizing access to our private capital markets. While these markets hold unique risks, it's imperative we realize our right to understand and accept them—and invest in the people, ideas and businesses we actually trust and believe in. The data is testament: investment crowdfunding works.
