GOOD: Accredited Investor website fund companies with crowd funding like strategy;
BAD: No sure how many investors in Funders Club used the website;
UGLY: Not sure if website has investors or at the end of the day directs its investors to use the plateform;
BOTTOMLINE: Funders Club’s logo is a male lion; but got long way to go to establish itself as the alpha male of accredited investor crowd funding.
Since its launch three weeks ago, Funders Club has raised over $1 million for startups.
Funders Club is a platform where accredited investors can access an inventory of vetted, early-stage companies. The startups publish comprehensive profiles on the site, along with a fundraising goal. Members have the opportunity to make small, equity investments in companies that appeal to them.
