Crowdfunder was founded in 2011 and is the leading equity crowdfunding platform with over 10,000 registered accredited individual and institutional investors. The Crowdfunder investment platform provides these investors with access to diverse set of venture-backed deal flow alongside experienced angels and VCs. Since 2011, Crowdfunders CEO has provided leadership on JOBS Act legislation on Capitol Hill and played a significant role in equity crowdfunding regulations (see Crowdfunder CEO on Forbes). Crowdfunder has successfully funded venture-backed and celebrity-led campaigns including NBA player Yao Ming’s Yao Family Wines and Neil Young’s PonoMusic.
The Hang w/ Crowdfunder campaign will allow accredited investors the opportunity to get involved in the early stages of a celebrity-backed startup. Hang w/ offers potential Crowdfunder investors patent-pending technology which is ready to scale across iOS, Android, Facebook, Twitter, and the web. The Hang w/ platform has already served millions of live videos to millions of users and offers a set of monetization features for users to generate revenue.
“Crowdfunding has changed the game for savvy investors looking to get involved in tomorrow’s technology companies,” said Andrew Maltin, CEO. “It used to be that only Bay Area Venture Capitalists had access to investment opportunities like this one. Today, accredited investors from across the country have the same level of access. We believe equity crowdfunding will help us reach our funding goals - while simultaneously expanding our platform’s base of fervent supporters.”
Crowdfunder CEO, Chance Barnett, said, “Crowdfunder is an excellent vehicle for companies like Hang w/ to tell a compelling story and leverage the influencers involved to drive actual investment into their company. We are excited to be teamed up with Hang w/ as they continue to grow and scale.”
“The real value to investors is the equity they will receive in Hang w/,” added Maltin. “Although I have to say we are offering some really exciting perks to investors at various levels, courtesy of a few of our celeb users and investors. Watch football with Terrell Owens, get trained by UFC fighter Jake Ellenberger, or sing on stage in Vegas with Tony Orlando! And that’s just the beginning. We’ve been thrilled by the support we are getting from the Hang w/ community and believe this will be a very successful campaign on several levels.”
