Frequently asked questions

What is equity crowdfunding?

With equity crowdfunding, investors get a financial stake in the company they’re supporting. Indiegogo and MicroVentures, two leaders in the crowdfunding and investing space, created an equity crowdfunding platform, First Democracy VC, that allows financial investment in innovative startups.

Why should I consider equity crowdfunding?

Equity crowdfunding allows you to offer investors a real stake in the company. The new platform gives you exposure to a passionate community of early adopters who are looking to invest in the next big thing. Raise money from an engaged community of investors while maintaining company control.

Who can use this service?

Current regulations only allow companies that are incorporated in the US to raise capital. Foreign entities/corporations aren’t eligible to raise capital on the platform. All investments need to be into a US entity.

How much can I raise?

You can raise up to $1,000,000 with a Title III offering, and there is no limit on a 506(c) offering. Indiegogo and MicroVentures allow you to do a Title III offering, a 506(c) offering, or both.

What are the different ways I can raise money?

You can decide to offer company shares in exchange for investment with an equity offering, offer a revenue share to investors, or even raise funds via a debt offering.

Is there a difference between applying for a raise on the Indiegogo site or applying on the MicroVentures site?
