It’s a good day, friends.
Today we’re announcing that we’ve added Launchrock.com to the Fundable family. LaunchRock is well known for helping idea stage startups build followings in preparation for launching their new business.
At Fundable, we started as customers ourselves when we launched Fundable in 2012 and grew to love the platform. By combining our companies, we have created the largest business crowdfunding platform. Here are the top-level numbers:
:: 10 million registered users (entrepreneurs and backer/investors)
:: 500,000 registered startup companies
:: 15,000 new company launches per month
:: 42 New Investors
Fundable has helped businesses crowdfund over $86 million in commitments. With LaunchRock, we can take this even further. Launchrock startups build an incredible amount of excitement about their new ideas, which lends itself beautifully to launching a funding campaign to support those great ideas. The 10 million registered users who have backed and followed startups will now have access to a whole new population of Fundable companies (like you!) who they can not only follow, but back and invest in as well.
What happens next?
We’re thrilled to be working closely with Launchrock Founder Jameson Detweiler. He is a true champion of entrepreneurship. We’ll begin to introduce features that make launching, building an audience, and funding your company a seamless process.
We’re dedicated to getting more startups launched and funded. Thanks for being a member of our community- great things to come!
