LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Equities.com, Inc., the online financial news organization and social community for investors, companies, and advisors, has launched a capital raise campaign on Crowdfunder. The two companies have also announced a strategic partnership to provide access to Crowdfunder's investment listings on Equities.com's Crowd Investing section. As part of its editorial coverage of the private investments space, Equities.com will also regularly interview and follow some of the most exciting companies raising capital through Crowdfunder.com. Equities.com is seeking to raise $2 million with the minimum reservation at $5,000.
As a leading financial technology company that has always focused on innovating the investment industry, this is a perfect opportunity to leverage the new regulatory changes created by the JOBS Act with a company that is equally as innovative, Crowdfunder, a robust crowdfunding platform, to facilitate the company's next round of fundraising.
"Equities.com is about empowering investors with education, analysis, and access to opportunities," said Enzo Villani, CEO of Equities.com. "By giving accredited investors the opportunity to own a piece of our company we are practicing what we preach by leveling the playing field for investors and creating a collaborative financial community utilizing some of the most exciting legislation and technology created by Crowdfunder."
"Equity crowdfunding is in many ways an extension of the small-cap market," said David Bernard, Founder and Chairman of Equities.com. "It's agile and innovative, utilizing the best technology and emerging legislation to give investors exciting opportunities."
"We're thrilled to see high growth companies like Equities.com on Crowdfunder, who themselves serve as a media platform and resource for the global investment community. Many leading Financial and Technology ventures are coming to Crowdfunder to raise funds from our deep accredited investor community, and Equities.com is another clear example of an innovative company leveraging the power of equity crowdfunding," said Chance Barnett, CEO of Crowdfunder.
Equities.com will make information regarding Crowdfunder's listings accessible to accredited investors, and will also strategically market opportunities from small and micro-cap public companies, including direct private placements, on the Crowdfunder platform. Equities.com and Crowdfunder will also jointly host a crowd finance investment conference series as part of the partnership.
