What is equity crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding uses the collective cooperation of the “crowd” to pool resources together in support of a specific project. Equity-based crowdfunding is where individual investors contribute capital in exchange for equity in a company. To accomplish this efficiently, Florida Funders creates a special purpose investment vehicle (SPV, LLC), which consolidates investors’ capital, and makes the investment in the vetted portfolio company.

Why is accreditation a requirement?

Early stage, privately-held companies are high-risk investments, and the SEC requires individuals to meet certain financial criteria before being allowed to view or participate in these investments. You can self-certify that you do meet the requirements of an accredited investor by clicking here.
