A new platform is seeking to help pre-growth companies in Series A and B offerings find alternate financing sources.
StartCapital.com‘s launch was designed to have the platform ready for the new Regulation A+ rules slated to take place later this month, says the platform’s Managing Director.
“We’re already seeing great interest in sourcing capital through Reg A+ and we expect this demand will only grow,” said Jake Durrant.
In addition to startup financing, StartCapital.com will also source funds for residential and commercial real estate which offers collateral often lacking in startup situations, Mr. Durrant added.
“While startups are often very sexy, it can be difficult to sell investors on the idea that their investment is safe, particularly if nothing exists except for some intellectual property and potential in a group of entrepreneurs,” Durrant says. “It’s one of the reasons we’re seeing such a big uptick in real estate related crowdfunding transactions.”
StartCapital.com offers lines of credit, asset-based lending, and debt financing allowing for partners through SBA. Equity options through IRA’s and 401(k)’s.
In its release the site said it will participate with equity investors in offering up to $1 million to select startups.
