What exactly is equity-based crowdfunding?
No doubt you have heard the term “crowdfunding” before, generally in reference to something like a Kickstarter campaign or a GoFundMe page. At its most basic level, crowdfunding is about raising small sums of money from a large group of people… a crowd!
Equity crowdfunding uses this same basic model, but instead of trying to raise donated dollars its aim is to raise investment dollars. You are not making a donation but rather an investment in which you will receive a percentage of ownership or some kind of other financial stake in the company with the possibility to earn a return on your investment.
Significant Matters is currently building an online portal and going through the SEC/FINRA approval process to open a Reg CF Crowdfunding Portal to serve the faith-driven community. Our motive is to help Business as Mission (BAM) companies, Faith-Driven Entrepreneurs and SaT Corps raise capital from individuals and churches for businesses that advance the gospel and serve the marginalized. More details coming soon.
