This week, Elite Crowdfund announce the launch of its new equity crowdfunding platform. This announcement comes just as U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission makes the final decision to allow unaccredited investors to enter the crowdfunding market.
Elite Crowdfund offers accredited, and potentially unaccredited pending the SEC decision, investors the opportunity to invest in selected early growth stage companies in exchange for an equity share in the company, while offering companies seeking start-up or early stage funding the opportunity to raise capital through a platform of thousands of investors.
The company shared:
“At Elite Crowdfund, we pride ourselves on providing a platform for qualified, accredited investors to connect directly with highly vetted investment opportunities. By responding to the mutual needs of both investors and entrepreneurs, Elite Crowdfund is able to offer investors an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of up-and-coming dynamic companies while offering entrepreneurs the necessary capital needed to grow through a platform of thousands of qualified investors.”
The new crowdfunding platform allows a broader scope of investors to reap the benefits of investing in early stage companies with investments opportunities as low as $5,000. Derek Cunningham, Managing Principal and CEO of Elite Crowdfund’s parent company, U.S. Strategic Capital stated:
“Atlanta is a hotbed for startups and venture capital. With business incubators such as the Advanced Technology Development Center and the Atlanta Tech Village, the ecosystem is robust and expanding rapidly. We want to be an integral part of that development as Atlanta continues to evolve as a vibrant startup and venture capital city.”
The companies now available to investors through Elite Crowdfund are Swarmify, SkyMedicus, Snapscore and Prong.
