When you raise funds for your business or project on EarlyShares.com, you’re not just posting your campaign for viewing by the investors on our platform. In fact, you’re exposing your equity crowdfunding offering to thousands (if not millions) of individuals on a major, high-traffic site thanks to EarlyShares’ presence on MarketWatch.com.
MarketWatch, published by Dow Jones & Co., is the web’s leading source for business news, personal finance information, real-time commentary, and investment tools and data. The site gets more than 16 million visitors per month.
EarlyShares’ partnership with Crowdnetic, a data provider serving the crowdfunding industry, enables our offerings to be published in real-time on MarketWatch’s industry-leading ‘Private Issuers Publicly Raising’ dashboard at marketwatch.com/investing/crowdnetic. MarketWatch is the first outlet to make private investment offerings publicly available on a major financial media website.
Investors can easily find EarlyShares’ offerings when they browse MarketWatch’s PIPR activity feed, search for issuers in their preferred industries, or screen for investment opportunities based on location, security type, pre-money valuation, or other criteria.
When your company comes up, investors can learn more about you and your fundraise just by clicking on your business name. They’ll be taken to a dedicated MarketWatch profile for your business featuring your most important issuer info. Check out the Crowdnetic profile for Kleo, a current EarlyShares project:
And the distribution reach for your offering doesn’t stop with MarketWatch. Crowdnetic also operates Crowdwatch, a subscription service for investors focused exclusively on crowdfunding investment opportunities. Your EarlyShares offering information is automatically published to Crowdwatch as soon as you launch your campaign.
Best of all, this increased exposure to investors through MarketWatch and CrowdWatch comes at no extra cost to you. Any issuer conducting a general solicitation offering on our site is seamlessly featured on both platforms, increasing their probability of receiving funding. You don’t even have to create your business profile on either site – we handle transferring the information to our partner Crowdnetic.
