The current issue of Hub Magazine features Peach State innovators in the crowdfunding space. Thanks to the Invest Georgia Exemption (IGE), a number of crowdfunding companies have emerged across the state as a new way to help fund great ideas:
- Georgia Tech Starter- The world’s first peer-reviewed, university-based crowdfunding platform for science and engineering projects.
- 478-BIBB FUND- a micro-grant organization and platform for the Central Georgia region to fund great ideas with $1,000 at a time.
- GROUNDFLOOR– A microlending community for real estate that enables individual microlenders to back independent commercial borrowers with direct secured loans that pay 6-26% annually.
- SparkMarket– An intrastate equity crowdfunding platform that made history by hosting the first successful equity-based crowdfund open to the U. S. public in 2013.
- SterlingFunder– An equity, debt and rewards crowdfunding portal which connects startup companies seeking capital with investors.
The organizations were in the magazine’s Georgia Upstarts section, which is a regular feature that profiles startups, innovators and disruptors with intriguing technology products/solutions in the marketplace or that are ready to be released within the next 5-6 months.
Georgia Upstarts can be found on page 25 of the FinTech issue of Hub Magazine.
