Note from the Publisher: AngelList, which is considered the largest and most credible crowdfunding platform on the planet, recently spun off a new platform – Republic – with alumni from the orignal entity. Both AngelList and Republic facilitate crowdfunding from investors (who may be unaccredited) into new business ventures.
“Management believes in the power of the American entrepreneur and the importance for the US economy. Republic reflected on their mission;
“…everyone — irrespective of gender, race or income bracket — can be a part of the startup journey. We welcome all to join our Republic, to participate, to innovate.”
Republic will be leveraging their Silicon Valley heritage by establishing partnerships with industry influencers such as AngelList cofounder Naval Ravikant and prominent investor Jason Calacanis. Republic will also work with social advocates who are diversifying tech like Shiza Shahid of the Malala Fund, Shaherose Charania of Women 2.0 and Ramona Ortega of the Latin Startup Alliance. The crowdfunding platform is also partnering with several crowdfunding experts including iDisclose and Katherine Krug. Republic stated they are “forging a unique support network for founders and investors alike.”
