The CNBC Crowdfinance 50 Index

To get a pulse reading on the emerging equity crowdfunding market, take a look at the CNBC Crowdfinance Index. It is the daily average index of the 50 largest capital commitments by private U.S. companies listed on Crowdnetic's data platform, which collates real-time offerings from securities-based crowdfunding platforms, including Alchemy Global, Crowdfunder, CrowdStreet, EarlyShares, EquityNet, Jumpstart Micro, MicroVentures, OurCrowd, Patch of Land, Prodigy Network, Realty Mogul, Seed Equity, SeedInvest and Wefunder.

Companies represented on the index are operating companies raising money, not equity funds. They represent eight sectors: commerce and industry; consumer goods; energy; finance; health care; materials; services and technology. These companies are conducting offerings pursuant to Title II [Rule 506(c)] or Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) of the JOBS Act.
