DreamFunded was launched in the fall of 2014 with the dream of funding some of the hottest new tech startups in Silicon Valley while also capitalizing on the equity crowdfunding market. We were successful in that goal, funding many promising companies and already seeing one exit. The equity crowdfunding space, like any new market, is full of new and exciting opportunities waiting to be tapped into.
In May of this year, the SEC implemented Regulation CrowdFunding under Title III of the J.O.B.S Act which allows non-accredited investors to access investment opportunities in private companies alongside accredited investors. DreamFunded is the first and only approved Title III platform in the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley. The pre-IPO platform has been rebranded as SVExchange.
