Onevest, a network for entrepreneurs that owns D.C.-made CoFoundersLab, has raised $1.5 million of a $2 million investment round launched in March.
But here’s the catch: the New York-based company raised the money exclusively on its own equity crowdfunding platform, launching the campaign just a few days after the SEC loosened restrictions on small public offerings.
The round closes Aug. 2.
“Today we have put a dent in the universe by changing the game of fundraising online,” Onevest Executive Chairman Alejandro Cremades said in a press release.
Last July, CoFoundersLab, a D.C. startup that helps entrepreneurs find their professional soul mates, merged with New York-based RockThePost.
The company has signed up more than 80,000 entrepreneurs and 15,000 investors to its platform, according to the release.
