Welcome to the Crowdfunding Dealflow Marketplace
"Entrepreneurs who are ready and take the appropriate steps towards building an effective and compliant Crowdfunding campaign will be able to quickly onboard to a registered funding portal, showcasing their business for the huge ground swell of investment capital that is projected to flood the crowdfund investing market place in 2014 and beyond."
The Crowdfundingroadmap Hatchery is a new ecosystem of crowd investing best practices for Issuers (entrepreneurs ) and Intermediary (registered funding portals and Broker/Dealers) to build a pipeline of quality dealflow resulting in a faster crowdfund investing process for the entire industry.
The Hatchery is a private network built using Web 3.0 technology, which offers a simple and convenient way for entrepreneurs to list their investment opportunities with an Intermediary (registered Funding Portal or Broker/Dealer), for compliant deal flow. The Hatchery offers a unique, integrated cloud based solution for transparency and due diligence disclosure requirements and will have a transformational effect on the Crowdfunding industry as it builds end-to-end business solutions in conjunction with the Fundingroadmap reporting system. The reality is that Startup and emerging businesses are desperate for new capital and the Hatchery helps in the capital formation life cycle by providing the resources to becoming compliant.
The JOBS Act (passed on April 5, 2012 by President Obama with bipartisan support) allows for a new avenue to access capital and aids in job creation starting in 2013. However, prior to effectively launching a Crowd Fund Investing Campaign, there are some minimum requirements that startup and emerging business owners will need to fulfill in order to be admitted to Funding Portals. For example, entrepreneurs “Issuers” need to be completely prepared in the areas of of having a plan for their business, along with legal, financial, marketing and social network capital, thus meeting the mandated requirements for registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The sooner entrepreneurs start the preparation of completing the mandatory requirements for their online campaign’s, the sooner they will have a competitive advantage to compete for capital formation from the “Crowd”. Entrepreneurs who are ready and take the appropriate steps towards building an effective and compliant Crowdfunding campaign will be able to quickly onboard to a registered funding portal, showcasing their business for the huge ground swell of investment capital that is projected to flood the crowdfund investing market place in 2013.
Careful screening of startup and emerging businesses is critical for the long-term success of equity and debt Crowdfunding. The Hatchery has gathered the best Crowdfunding value-added service providers for both pre and post-funding advantages for our clients to utilize.
Some of these innovative service providers are Crowdcheck, Traklight, and Equity IQ which provides tools and services that aid in accessing the credibility of businesses and when a business passes these thresholds, they help to advance the listings in the marketplace., In addition, using the crowd funding ecosystem through these service providers ensures the information being provided by issuers is accurate and differentiates themselves from other issuers on registered Funding Portals. Operating in real time equity and debt based Crowdfunding models requires everyone to perform at a higher standard of disclosure which is built into the Fundingroadmap and Hatchery.
The pre-screening process conducted by Intermediaries (registered funding portals and Broker/Dealers) will provide investors a high quality of deal flow, while introducing Issuers to the investing public.
The bottom line is that regardless of how entrepreneurs pursue raising capital in the future, having all of the bones in place (e.g., plan for your business, financial statements, and so much more) for a potential Crowdfunding campaign, the Fundingroadmap and Hatchery is the best place to start as it will increase your chances of matching up with an Intermediary (registered Funding Portal or Broker/ Dealer) partner, making your business more attractive to raising capital, while allowing your management team to operate from a position of strength and most importantly, increasing your chances of getting fully funded!
