WHY ARE
WE DOING
THIS?


People have been taking to the streets and on social media, asking governments, companies, and their communities to take action.

They are searching for ways to participate and have a real impact with their dollars. Equity crowdfunding is the only funding process that allows the general public to open their minds to the genius of people who don’t look or act like them, and to use their money to help fund them so we can all rise up, so more great businesses can get out into the world and get the funding they need to succeed.

For decades our society has encouraged the less fortunate among us to spend their money on lottery tickets, sports betting, and gambling, at the same time preventing them from the legal right (which they gave to wealthy people) to invest in startups and growing private companies.

The first three are guaranteed losers for most of us, while startups have returned 15% on average over the past 50 years. This, along with low wages, is a big factor in the lack of generational wealth among Black and Brown people.

THE EXODUS OF
WOMEN FROM
THE WORKFORCE
IS A NATIONAL
EMERGENCY

"In February 2020, around 5 million women were business owners. By April, one in four had closed their doors. About 2.5 million women have lost their jobs or dropped out of the workforce during the pandemic. That’s enough to fill 40 football stadiums. This mass exodus of women from the workforce is a national emergency, and itdemands a national solution. "
KAMALA D. HARRIS
Vice President of the United States.
Washington Post
Although Black Americans have an annual spending power of $1.2 trillion, their households only held a median of $11,000 in wealth in 2013, according to federal data. What’s even more disturbing is that by 2053, black Amercian's median wealth will fall to zero if the gap continues to widen at its current pace. The median wealth for white Americans is 12 times higher than that of black Americans at around $140,000, and the inequality in wealth continues to grow and widen with each generation.

Generational wealth - financial assets passed on and built upon with each generation within a family - is critical to future financial security. It’s the foundation for opportunities and access to better jobs, education, and better healthcare.

WE BELIEVE INVESTING
IN A PRIVATE COMPANY
OR STARTUP
IS THE LEGAL RIGHT
OF EVERYONE.


Someone investing their money to help a startup's vision come to life or a business survive this pandemic could be one of the most important things they will ever do with their extra money. But no one is making the public aware that they can exercise this new privilege. And we believe that the laws that limit investments to the wealthy only widen the wealth gap, so we are launching "Rise Up Crowdfunding" to do something about it all.

Last  summer, we produced a virtual summit and partnered with the following organizations to introduce equity crowdfunding to their members, with over 2000 people attending.
