At FundAmerica we are great with all the back-office aspects of your offering, but we don’t do the “front end” web design or platform building. Your investor-facing webpages or website can easily tie into our back-end service via either our Invest Now button or our API’s. These professionals are happy to assist you with the “front door” for your offering.
Web Designers – (typically the quickest, most economical route)
Platform Builders – (for people who want to have a dozen or more offerings live at any given time and are generally marketing their services or numerous direct SPV’s to the crowd)
The single biggest factor in the success (or not) of any offering is the issuers ability to directly market it to prospective investors. Regardless of what anyone tells you, there is currently no magic bullet; no platform, no broker, no consultant will single-handedly get your deal 100% sold. You have to spend time and money on marketing. Many issuers already have lists of investors, customers, employees, vendors and others they can effectively market to. Even so, you might need help creating and engaging video and crafting marketing copy. So whether it’s a little marketing help, or a lot, these firms are specializing in crowd-direct equity and debt tech-driven capital raises.

Alpha Funders is a stealth private equity and venture capital firm that creates and manages independent special purpose vehicles (SPVs) for early-stage ventures via a service called SingleCap. SingleCap enables ventures raising under Regulation D 506(b) or 506(c) to aggregate up to ninety-nine accredited investors into a single entity, which is invested into the venture as one line-item on its cap table. This benefits ventures pursuing equity crowdfunding by unlocking their ability to accept $5K, $10K or $25K+ investors while maintaining a clean cap table, and minimizing the company's longer-term corporate governance and administrative overhead. Beyond SingleCap, Alpha Funders also provides trusted, independent board advisory, capital planning, valuation and due diligence services to ventures and investors, among a suite of other Portfolio Advisory Services related to starting and scaling businesses, fundraising and online equity crowdfunding.
