NEW YORK, June 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Onevest announced today the launch of its Series A round of financing to celebrate the implementation of Title IV of the JOBS Act. The offering is as of today live on its own platform. This change in the regulatory landscape allows startups in America to raise up to $50M from accredited and non-accredited investors for the first time in 80 years.
CoFounder & Executive Chairman at Onevest, Alejandro Cremades, stated, "Given that 65% of the net new jobs are created by small businesses, this is a huge success for our economy and for innovation. Without a doubt, we are experiencing a unique moment in time as now companies can raise different rounds of financing online from anyone in America."
Onevest connects early stage startups with accredited investors. The company helped last year in the closing of over 15 transactions averaging between USD $750,000 and USD $4,500,000. This year Onevest expects to double the amount of companies that successfully raise capital on the platform.
The company last year acquired CoFoundersLab, the largest matchmaking service for co–founders. With this unique strategy, Onevest is creating a curated network with the aim of supporting entrepreneurs and investors from the formation of the startup. This gives Onevest a significant competitive advantage at capturing the best deal flow early on before the transactional stage where all the equity crowdfunding competitors are operating. One of the recent success stories that used CoFoundersLab services was Revolv (acquired by Google).
As of today, Onevest has created one of the largest networks in the startup ecosystem with over 80,000 founders and 15,000 investors registered. In addition, there are over 14,000 introductions between cofounders per quarter. Moreover, at least 21 of the major startup hubs in America are using a white label solution of its service to build teams. This includes top ivy league schools and the biggest accelerator network. Onevest also has 4,000 advisers with the goal of mentoring its founders and offline events that are organized by 50 volunteers across 35 different cities every month with over 20,000 people attending.
Current investors of Onevest include SOL Ventures, MAPAMUNDI Ventures, Militello Capital, Fortify Ventures, Maryland Venture Fund, Talent Equity Ventures, Robin Hood Ventures, Mid-Atlantic Angel Group members, amongst others.
Onevest is an online network and transactional platform which supports founders and investors in building successful ventures. Through its curated startup investment marketplace, its accredited investor community gains access to high-quality, pre-vetted investment opportunities.
