Equity Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding

Funding projects or companies through a crowd has a longer history than you might think. The Statue of Liberty was partly funded by thousands of people throwing money into donation buckets, gold mining prospects in 19th century New Zealand were often financed by offers of stock, and vast networks of railroads during the industrial revolution were built with the proceeds from bonds.

Crowdfunding

Identical twins Matt and Brady Thomas went to the same university and had the same first job. Now they are 29 and their second co-founded start-up has just raised $470,000 in equity crowdfunding.
