For the first time in history, the majority of the US population can invest in tech startups.
In May 2016, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enacted Title III of the JOBS Act, allowing a majority of the US population to invest in startups for the very first time. But the complicated legal requirements called for a founder- and investor-friendly platform to make startup investing truly accessible.
That’s why we built Republic. We’re SEC-registered and FINRA-licensed, and if you’re at all interested in startups, you’ve heard of our past work. Republic is part of a family of startup platforms together with AngelList and Product Hunt — one of the most trusted online startup ecosystems in the world.
We launched our equity investing platform in 2016, and didn’t stop there. Just over a year ago, we created Republic Crypto, providing the first full stack fundraising solution in the crypto space. This year we are excited to introduce Republic Labs, an affiliated investment advisory service.
We have garnered a reputation as an industry leader in the regulated crowdfunding space and continue to innovate and iterate toward our mission to democratize startup fundraising and investing.
Startups are here to change the world, but they need money to grow. Many startups’ success depends on their ability to get funded.
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, Title III opened the door for those previously excluded from startup investing to fund 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.
We welcome all kinds of entrepreneurs, but we’re encouraging startups with diverse teams and backgrounds to apply. Why?
Because talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not. Equalization of the fundraising landscape will provide more talent with the chance to build companies and create more investment opportunities for investors.
Traditionally, female, black, and latinx founders have seen far less venture capital than their white male counterparts. Furthermore, the majority of funded startups come from Silicon Valley and New York with little representation from other cities across the US.
We believe that more unicorns can be found where the masses aren’t looking.
Because we believe the greatest companies have a mission.
This isn't just fanciful ideology. Having a mission helps founders see the big picture and set big goals, persevere through tough times, and lead and inspire their team along the way.
We're a team of founders and investors, builders and operators.
Republic was founded by alumni of AngelList, the world's largest online investment platform for accredited investors. AngelList was instrumental in passing the JOBS Act and remains our strategic partner.
Our team has extensive experience in investing, online fundraising, business, law, engineering and community building. We’re passionate about startup investing and creating a better future, just like you.
