FUNDING THE FUTURE

We are leveling the playing field for access to capital!
Our mission is to create a place where the general public comes together to level the playing field for access to capital for diverse-owned small businesses.
We are going to do this using equity crowdfunding—a process that allows an issuer to grow an army of passionate investors from their fans, followers, customers, and the general public to drive entrepreneurship, supplier diversity, transform communities, and have the potential to create generational wealth.
We’ve broken down the barriers and democratized investing so people over the age of 18 years old, regardless of wealth or race, will have the same opportunity to raise capital and be an investor.
