What is Reg CF Crowdfunding and Why Is It a BIG DEAL?
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 recently launched EquityVest, a Reg CF (Crowdfunding) portal to serve the faith-driven community. We are bringing together entrepreneurs and investors who believe it is possible to run a business that both fuels the enterprise and evidences the virtues and vision of our Christian faith. We mean to leverage both the passion and compassion of the faith-driven community to support business as a God-ordained means of overcoming poverty, extending the gospel and creating a free and virtuous society.
