Looking to find a list of equity funding portals across the globe? As investing regulations have changed in countries throughout the world, this has opened up access to invest in early stage startup companies, that was previously private. Our goal at Fund Wisdom is to help you source deals by understanding the investing portal market to transact through.
We have observed years of growth in the market, with new funding portals being created regularly in the United States of America. The steady rate of Equity crowdfunding platforms getting built presents a challenge to presenting a comprehensive list. Our focus has been those portals that have targeted US investors so taking a global approach makes that even more challenging. I hope to help you identify the investing portal that is right for you and balance your review of them at a global level.
At Fund Wisdom our focus is on Americas based funding platforms or portals. We will review each portal as we add them into our database. We look to interview entrepreneurs along with investors to help in this review process. At the time of writing this we have 38 investing platforms reviewed and another 57 that have listed with the US SEC but have not seen enough investment offerings to yet warrant our review.
This represents what I consider to be a fairly fragmented market, which I expect to be consolidated over time. We have already observed several platforms in the US go through M&A activity like Seedinvest being acquired by Circle, Nextseed and Republic, Netcapital and ValueSetters.
Note that several platforms have shut down since we first started collecting data and building reviews in 2014. As of writing 6 we had reviewed ceased operating.
We have reviewed real estate investing portals and the correlations to the equity startup investing marketplace.
Out of the platforms we review we provide ranks based upon performance data and research.
- Rating of top 10 platforms 2019 & 2020
- Find and search companies raising money across platforms
- For a wide range with detailed reviews YieldTalk is another great source.
The Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge in the UK produces regular reports on the alternative financial markets with a global view. Even though the report is wide ranging from the securities they cover, we regularly reference their equity focused insights. We understand much of the data is self reported by the platforms themselves. While the breadth of securities and process to collect is not fool proof presents a challenge to report on the entire equity funding industry, it is still one of the most comprehensive sources for this analysis.
The regulatory framework is vastly different for each country resulting in varied market dynamics and platform operations by geography. We cover Americas based regulation that govern the platforms like Title III of the JOBS Act and the SEC.
List of Global Platforms
Below the comments is a list of equity crowdfunding portals, platforms, websites, digital properties, and apps from all over the world, outside the US. We do not yet have the ability to go as deep as we would like with each platform and achieve a global perspective so we recommend P2P Market Data for a more comprehensive list.
