History

Founded in 2011 by Greg Belote, Mike Norman, and Nick Tommarello. They started by offering Reg D filings. The team went through YCombinator and leverage the network to help fund many graduates of the program.

Regulation A+ campaigns are for more mature companies looking to raise up to $50 million. This incurs public filing requirements.

They allow investments starting from $100-$500, unlike the minimum threshold of $1000 by  many equity crowdfunding platforms.
