Unprecedented times call for bold and innovative action.
Rise Up Crowdfunding assists with providing a platform that issuers may use to attempt to fund their piece of the American dream and, as they do so, to potentially help provide access to capital for women-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, and LGBTQ- owned businesses and startups.
We also believe that a business using Rise Up Crowdfunding should also be a force for social good.
If you go through the capital-raising process on the Rise Up Crowdfunding portal you will be required to disclose during the review process and to the public on your offering page the answers to the following questions to let prospective investors know where you and your business stand on these issues:
Will you pay a living wage to all of your employees?
Will you have a diverse board of directors?
Will you follow the Equal Pay Act? The Equal Pay Act requires that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work.
Are you committed to fostering a culture of tolerance and inclusiveness throughout your company?
What sustainability or environmental standards does your company have in place or plans to execute?
Whether you’re looking for your seed round or have an extensive fundraising history, Rise Up Crowdfunding provides a funding portal that can be utilized to raise capital for your needs.
