Funding Launchpad Empowers Investment Crowdfunding History!


Earlier last month mobile scanner manufacturer Couragent Inc. announced they were launching an equity crowdfunding offering. Legally able to raise money from residents of Colorado, Illinois, New York, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, this makes Couragent the first American company to legally use investment crowdfunding.

  1. The ability to generally solicit (i.e. openly advertise that a company is raising money).
