Equity Crowdfunding for All!

Republic is, in founder Ken Nguyen's words: "an investment platform that allows everyone, not just millionaires, every day people, irrespective of your income of net worth, to actually invest in private companies, may it be crypto or equity. It's a relatively new thing. It's only been legal for a little bit less than two years."


This means that you--yes YOU--can go on Republic.co right now and invest as little as $10 and as much as 10% of your income in the startups that Republic has vetted and decided are a good fit for equity crowdfunding. Then if they get rich, you get a piece of the pie. Listen to Karl and Ken talk about the benefits for both investors and companies, the legal and technical difficulties of making it all work--and a bonus primer on "initial coin offerings" or ICOs.
