Are you interested in investing in a hot new startup, but don’t know where to start? Well thanks to the the 2012 Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS), now you can. Due to this, a lot of companies have began to pop up in order to help startups set up their crowdfunding campaigns and allow people to start investing. In some cases, you can invest in these new startups with as little as $50. This can let almost anyone get access and invest in companies looking to change the world. Another bonus besides helping change the world, is that the returns on these investments can be lucrative. However, be warned that investing in startups through crowdfunding platforms can also be extremely risk. 


Founded in 2008, Indiegogo may be the most popular crowdfunding platform for startups that let’s anyone invest on it. Since then, they’ve helped fund over 800,000 innovative ideas across 235 countries and territories. Through here, you can access projects all over the globe with a diverse range of projects from technology to environmental campaigns. Here you can find projects in any field that you’re interested in investing in. On Indiegogo, much like Kickstarter, you can invest in these companies for perks, like early access to their products. This let’s you access some exciting new startups and buy access to exciting new ideas that can change the world. You can even provide funding for humanitarian efforts and help people do good in the world. 


Republic is another large crowdfunding company that gives you access to some cool new startups. This company will let you fund some exciting new ideas and also get a piece of the pie, so if they succeed, you do too. If the companies succeed, this could make the returns on your investment extremely lucrative. And one of the most exciting things is you can invest for as little as $10. So if you have $100, you can diversify your risk and help 10 different companies at the same time.

Republic is also highly selective about the companies that are on their platform. In fact, only 3% of the companies that apply to raise funds get selected. This means you can be sure that the companies are at least not committing fraud. Republic does the due diligence, so you have less work to do. They also have no fees for investors, so a $10 investment is a $10 investment, nothing is taken by Republic. Investing with Republic is as easy as finding an idea you enjoy and hitting invest. 

Funds is one of the newest Crowdfunding Platforms

Title3 Funds is one of the new kids on the block and for as little as $50 you can invest in their campaigns. Like Republic, Title3 also vets all of the companies that come onto their platform. They also assign an advisor to each company on their platform to help improve their chances of success. Title3 even takes a stake in the companies they put on their platform, so they put their money where their mouth is. This is a great platform to find companies that have been specifically vetted by professionals in the field. 

Speaking of Title3, you should keep an eye out on them for some big news coming soon.

These days, there’s tons of platforms for crowdfunding for startups and it’s been getting more popular each year. It’s becoming more common for young companies to look towards the crowd to raise funds and help them grow. It also allows you to invest in startups from an early day and support companies you believe in.
