Crowdfunding Holiday Gift

By Crowdability, on Friday, December 20, 2013

I know what to give them, let’s send everyone a funny Christmas card photo of us wearing the ugliest sweaters ever!

That little gem of a suggestion came from one of the interns here at Crowdability HQ.

You see, we’ve been kicking around different ideas for “holiday gifts” for you and our other readers.

And while we think an ugly-sweater photo would be funny, we don’t think you’d enjoy it nearly as much as the gift we did decide on.  Let me explain…

Research in Your Stocking?

Every Monday at Crowdability, we publish our weekly “Deals Digest” email.  This is a roundup of some of the most interesting equity crowdfunding deals from around the web.

Based on the “heat map” technology we use, we discovered what the most popular deals with our subscribers from the last few weeks were.

So here’s what we’re going to do…

Whichever company listed below gets the most votes on this survey, we’ll write-up a custom research report and send it out to you and all of the other Crowdability readers as a free holiday gift.  It’s our way of saying thank you for supporting us as we grow.

Here’s the list of companies – again, these are the three most popular companies over past few weeks – you can only vote for one.  The survey link is at the bottom of this email.

1.    Abe’s Market (Amazon meets Whole Foods)

This young-but-proven company combines the explosive growth of organic goods, with the power of the Internet.  Think of it as “Amazon meets Whole Foods.”

Founded in 2009 by an experienced management team, this business is generating $5 million in annual sales and experiencing 100% year-over-year growth.

2.    RealCrowd (Disrupting the Commercial Real Estate Market) 

Simply put, RealCrowd is an online platform for Crowdfunded Real Estate.  They feature investment opportunities in Commercial Real Estate (“CRE”).

By bringing together deals and individual investors, they allow real estate operators to raise money efficiently from a new source — and allow individual investors to participate in CRE by buying shares of individual properties.

3.    Iodine

Iodine helps individuals make better decisions about the medications they take.  They do this by “crunching” big databases like the FDA’s.

As they write on their website: “Iodine combines large healthcare datasets with a user’s individual needs and background to create a personalized resource for better understanding and decision-making about health.”
