Wells, United KingdominvestUP.co partners with five new equity and Peer-to-Business (P2B) crowdfunding sites, joining the eight crowdfunding sites already on the investUP platform. The new portfolio including Property Moose, Invest & Fund, Assetz Capital, Ablrate and AngelList crowdfunding platforms allows investors to search for the best deals from all their favorite crowdfunding sites, uniquely invest in these without leaving the site and then keep track of their investments

As crowdfunding continues to grow rapidly, UP will help its partner crowdfunding sites develop by focusing on marketing the deals, in effect enabling the crowdfunding partners to concentrate on getting more and better deals on to their platforms. In turn, investors will benefit from access to a superior choice and quality of potential investments via their centralized UP portfolio.

The crowdfunding sites joining the UP platform are:

  • Property Moose – hassle free property investment
  • Invest & Fund – solving investment problems and providing funding solutions for high quality deals
  • Assetz Capital – one of the UK’s largest P2B lending sites
  • Ablrate – asset backed lending focusing on aeronautics
  • AngelList – one of the largest equity crowdfunding sites in the US, having just launched in the UK

James Tuckett, Managing Director at investUP, said, “We live in an age where crowdfunders are demanding more and more deals, yet are faced with a myriad of crowdfunding site choices. Looking for a single crowdfunding site to start a portfolio can be difficult and time consuming. We take the view that, as the crowdfunding supermarket, crowdfunders using our platform should be able to lend and invest in deals from all the key players across the entire market. We are very excited to introduce our five newest partners and look forward to delivering the highest quality of investments to our current and future users.”

UP brings the P2B crowdfunding market together in one place, enabling users to invest via one centralized portfolio (Peer-to-Peer and equity coming soon). It allows investors to search for deals from all their favorite crowdfunding sites, uniquely invest in these without leaving the site and then keep track of their investments. UP is completely free, with no hidden costs. It revolutionizes the market by bringing simplicity and increasing choice for users, in a simple, elegant and straightforward way.

Founded in 2012, investUP officially launched into the market at Finovate Europe in London in 2015. It graduated from the inaugural Startupbootcamp FinTech accelerator in London in 2014, and has recently been named as one of The FinTech 50 2015 Hot 10 companies and included in The Sunday Times’ top 25 fintech companies globally.

Georgia Investors Get First Unaccredited, Equity-based Crowdfunding Investment Opportunity in the United States via Sterlingfunder.com

14 May

By Robert Hoskins

Unaccredited investors in Georgia will be the first Americans in history to begin investing in the equity-based Crowdfunding movement.  cMEcompete announced that it will be the first company in Georgia and the rest of the United States to issue equity through online crowdfunding to non-accredited investors. This means that any Georgia resident can go online and make an equity investment in a Georgia-based company quickly and easily through Sterlingfunder.com.

SterlingFunder.com Georgia’s First Unaccredited Equity-Based Crowdfunding Platform

Until the federal government approved the JOBS act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act) a year ago, securities placement was governed by the SEC Act of 1933. The JOBS Act removes some of the constraints imposed by the SEC Act of 1933, yet the SEC has not yet implemented these changes. To give Georgians a head start rule makers approved The Invest Georgia Exemption in 2012 which makes it legal for non-accredited investors to make intrastate investments (Georgia resident investing in a Georgia company) through crowdfunding.

How is this different from Kickstarter, Indiegogo and AngelList? Kickstarter and Indiegogo provide crowdsourcing of non-equity contributions. AngelList requires all investors to be accredited and the transaction must occur through Second Market (not online).

“These are exciting times with state law makers removing barriers for startups,” says Dan Popovic, cMEcompete Founder. “Now it is time for Georgians to take advantage of this opportunity by investing in new Georgia businesses and fueling the State’s economic recovery. cMEcompete is proud to be the first platform for this historic opportunity.”

cMEcompete is a social platform for endurance events where participants discover like-minded communities, enroll, track accomplishments and get rewarded. With the growth of running/walking, cycling and triathlons, with over 35,000 such events in the US to choose from, we’ve identified a unique opportunity to create a social platform for organizations, clubs and individuals. Company and event sponsors provide the revenue stream and in turn receive increased brand awareness and increased engagement and participation.

“It’s a sound business model that has already proven to be very successful. The Atlanta BeltLine Running Series doubled participation and sponsorship rates in 2012 through the use of our platform,” says Jay Evans, cMEcompete co-Founder.
