Republic, a New York-based startup, a platform that enables anyone to invest in startups securely like an IPO. Taking advantage of new laws, they are democratizing access to angel investors and allowing entrepreneurs to crowdsource capital. Republic carefully vets early-stage startups, identifies high potential startups, and lists them for investors like an IPO. Users can easily sign up and browse available companies, then start investing in seconds.
One of their biggest accomplishment is the launch of their Crypto product, which is first of its kind. This platform focuses exclusively on funding blockchain startups and gives users the opportunity to participate in this process. With this product, they are opening a new avenue in this space and reaching a broader share of users.
Silicon Valley is an amazing place that has fostered and funded startups for decades, but its homogeneity has become increasingly apparent in recent years. Fortunately, Republic has opened the door for those previously excluded from startup investing to contributing in the companies they believe in. This makes room for more entrepreneurs — because in a world where anyone can fund anyone, more ideas get off the ground.
