Funding Impact Startups: How They Compare to Broader Market Investments

Posted at 11/26/2023

Explore how impact investing equity and debt deals fare against the broader crowdfunding market since May 2022, with insights on median and average funding amounts, and investor preferences.

Reposted from KingsCrowd. Written by Léa Bouhelier-Gautreau.

This week, we compare the median and average amounts invested in impact investing equity and debt deals with the amounts invested in all crowdfunding deals. Our data encompasses every Reg CF and Reg A deals since May 2022.

  • For equity deals, the median amount raised by impact deals is higher than that of any deals. This means that investors tend to invest more in impact investing deals.
  • However, the average amount invested in impact investing deals is smaller than that in most deals. This is because only four impact deals reached $5 million in funding. This is a small portion of the 20 deals that reached $5 million or more in funding. Five of these deals received $10 million to $50 million in funding.
  • Overall, impact invest

How funding portals can reduce CAC & CIC:

Cost of Investor Acquistion

Creating institutional capital investment pools with funding portals is hugely important. Honeycomb Credit has trailblazed that with a foundation. You can go to pension funds, banks, insurance companies, credit unions, etc with these kinds of proposals. Point to HoneyComb's success story, differentiate your portal.

Side-note: would love to start seeing partnerships between niche portals.

If you aren't ready to do that yet, and are starting off with founders in your direct network, I would fill your relevant social media channels (that you send to people) with accessible and engaging demos of your product from the investor's perspective. Of course, content for business owners is important too... but think about it this way: fundraising businesses will be sending your social media content to their investors as to explain how the process is going to go.

Educational content on why your niche and portal serve a critical need. Explain to investors, why their investm...more

How we calculated Raiseway's Global Total Addressable Market

Posted at 7/28/2023

Disclaimer: (1) the issuer is considering an exempt offering, but has not decided upon any particular exemption; (2) the issuer is not soliciting any money or other consideration and, if sent, will not be accepted by the issuer; (3) the issuer will not sell securities or accept commitments to purchase securities until the issuer decides on which exemption it will pursue and satisfies any required filing, disclosure or qualification requirements; and (4) all indications of interest made by solicitees are non-binding.

To calculate Global #TotalAddressableMarket, we needed to understand how much Raiseway will charge users in each country.

We developed a global parity-pricing model to figure that out.

According to our most recent calculations, our yearly Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) in the US will be $575, accounting for churn.

(^This isn't exactly right, we need to update the model. When we do, the TAM numbers will move by a n million, not sure which direction. 🤡 )

Is Reg D Suitable for My Company?

Posted at 3/9/2023

Regulation D (Reg D) is a set of rules established by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that allows companies to raise capital without registering their securities for public sale and is related to, but different than other JOBS Act regulations. Reg D also establishes certain disclosure requirements that companies must comply with when selling securities under this type of offering and offers several advantages for companies seeking to raise capital, these include:

  • Ability to raise capital from accredited and some nonaccredited investors
  • Reduced disclosure requirements, and faster access to capital
  • No limits on offering sizes

However, there are also certain drawbacks associated with Reg D. For example, companies must comply with state regulations that may require disclosure of notices of sale or the names of those who receive compensation in connection with the sale. Additionally, the benefits of Reg D only apply to the issuer of the securities, not to affil...more

'Crowdfunding Is Only for Crappy Companies That Can't Raise Venture Capital.' Poppycock!

Naysayers Suggest Crowdfunding Is Only for the Unwashed and Unworthy. Here's the Truth.  

Disclaimer: I’m not a financial advisor; nothing I write in Superpowers for Good should be considered investment advice. You should seek appropriate counsel before making investment decisions.

I’m sick and tired of hearing this crap. That’s what it is. I’m sorry, but smart people who otherwise spend their days doing intelligent and kind things are still thinking that crowdfunding is for losers. It’s not.

Let me explain this in terms anyone can understand. And please, do me a favor. Share this message with someone you love. Heck, share it with everyone you love.

Regulated investment crowdfunding is not for losers, the unwashed or the unworthy. It’s for every good company out there. It is for every investor.

Does that mean that sometimes a crappy company will raise money via crowdfunding? Yes. But don’t stop reading! Remember, those genius venture capitalists who sometimes lead the chants ...more

Here's an Easy New Year's Resolution to Change the World

Devin Thorpe Devin Thorpe
Posted at 1/4/2023

There has been no shortage of articles about new year’s resolutions. I’d be reluctant to join the chorus if this one didn’t have the potential to yield so much good for so little effort.

Many people recommend focusing your 2023 goals on a single objective. If you’re struggling to find one, look no further! This one is easy.

If you are taking a portfolio approach to your self-improvement this year, here’s an idea that will be easy to add into the mix as it will take less time and money than most.

For 2023, set a goal to make an impact investment via crowdfunding.

To be clear, I’m not talking about donating to charity or helping someone in need on GoFundMe. Those are good and noble things to do, but I’m talking about something similarly easy but fundamentally different.

The biggest difference is that you could get your money back—with interest!


The biggest challenge to making your first investment is your mindset. For about 90 years following the Great Depressio...more

Change the zoning codes. Open up solutions for everyone.

Remember the “starter home?” It was a bungalow. Or a cottage? No, a rambler! I’m writing wistfully in the past tense because the starter home has largely disappeared.

This at a time when experts widely agree we need at least 6 million new homes to house all Americans? Yep. Because many cities and boroughs have made building small homes all but impossible.

The hardest project of my life was a 235 SQF “tiny home” on a 1500 SQF lot in Pittsburgh’s Garfield neighborhood.

I was attempting to build a single-family, detached home in a neighborhood with existing amenities and infrastructure. But the zoning codes as written originally left me with only 50 SQF to build on. 50!

I had to fight the zoning board and building inspector. I had to crowdfund the project (on of course) because I couldn’t get a bank loan since there were no comps. It was as if the city had intentionally designed the codes to make the unit economics of building a starter completely unaffordable.
