Hello Beautiful People!
A quick note to point out the obvious thing in RegCF...the Broker Dealers are joining The Crowd. Some bullet points for you to mull over:
- Last week $17.3M was committed to RegCF deals. This is probably up 100% from 2020 but you'll have to go to KingsCrowd.com to confirm.
- Note the #5 Funding Platform isn't actually a "Funding Portal" but a Broker Dealer.
- Who is Dalmore Group? And why should you care that BDs are swimming with The Crowd?
While there are only 65 FINRA registered Funding Portals, there are over 3200 Broker Dealers in the USA. BDs have far more access to capital than even Sharks do. To put it in terms more easily understood, if VCs are Sharks, Broker Dealers are Orcas. DYK that Orcas are the only seafaring creature that actively hunts Great White sharks?
SO! This is a big deal because BDs have access to institutional capital the likes of which VCs could never fathom accessing. What happens when institutional money meets crowdfunding?
Buckle up. RegCF is on track to generate over $550M in funding in 2021 and looks to have 100% growth year over year until at least 2026. Which means, conservatively, $8B to $12B a year could be raised via RegCF. How is that possible you ask? Deep pocketed Orcas, swimming in the early stage part of the investing ocean.
