How did one person’s problem become a solution for everyone?
CrowdlistIQ was founded by Preston Banks whose inspiration came when he had difficulty searching online for equity crowdfunds to invest in. He came across various websites and had to search through each to discover and compare companies. It was time consuming and frustrating. So he created CrowdlistIQ, listing all of the equity crowdfund companies for people to easily explore and see what’s available.
But CrowdlistIQ is more than resource for potential investors. CrowdlistIQ also benefits entrepreneurs. The creation of a crowdfunding campaign itself is not going to instantly achieve its funding goal. Marketing is critical to the success of a crowdfunding campaign. And it takes getting discovered by potential investors.
CrowdlistIQ is the ultimate resource for entrepreneurs looking to have real success with equity crowdfunding. We bring all of the equity crowdfunds and potential investors together on one site. It’s like the best networking party you’ve never had to go to! The best part – it’s free to list to your company on the site.
The CrowdlistIQ name comes from the purpose of the site to list crowdfunds and “IQ” which stands for intelligence. It was the perfect name for a site that strives to help others in equity crowdfunding to start smart by going to CrowdlistIQ.
Timing was everything. CrowdlistIQ was developed during the emergence of the new industry after Title III of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act (Regulation CF) became effective. The Act opened equity crowdfunding for entrepreneurs to seek out everyday investors to raise capital and grow their companies via online crowdfunding portals.
In July 2017, CrowdlistIQ launched. The idea that took root in an encountered problem is now available for people and entrepreneurs – saving time and hassle by being a one-stop shop listing all equity crowdfunds.
