Cielex Launches Map-Based Crowdfunding Portal
SAN DIEGO, July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Cielex, an equity-based crowdfunding portal, today announced the launch of its site. Using a map-based user interface, Cielex seamlessly connects entrepreneurs with investors, all on a transparent and secure platform.
Crowdfunding describes the collective effort of a "crowd" to pool financial resources to support a start-up business. In April 2012, Congress passed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, allowing entrepreneurs to solicit and issue stock of their companies to the crowd. As a result, starting next year, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will begin to rollout the rules and regulations that will govern the issuance of securities by a start-up through a funding portal intermediary.
Cielex has been getting ready for this new financing paradigm by developing the most easy-to-use and transparent crowdfunding portal in the industry. Through the map-based navigation tool, investors will have access to promising start-ups anywhere in the United States. Whether the investment opportunity is located around the corner or across the country, investors will be able to find and locate small businesses that meet their investment criteria.
Angela Hernandez , Cielex's co-founder, commented that start-ups would also benefit from the unique user interface. Unlike other crowdfunding marketplaces where success or failure depends on the decisions of the funding portal, Cielex believes that the success of the offering should entirely rest on the efforts of the company.
Cielex is an easy-to-navigate funding portal that enables entrepreneurs to leverage their social network as a source of capital for their businesses. Cielex is pending registration with the SEC as a "funding portal", as defined by the JOBS Act.
