Onevest, a New York-based online network and crowdfunding platform, has raised $2 million of Series A fundraising. And they carried it out on their own platform! Onevest’s marketplaces currently have over 80,000 entrepreneurs and 15,000 investors registered, and they are hoping to use the proceeds to double the number of successful transactions this upcoming year.
Executive chairman Alejandro Cremades said: “Today we have put a dent in the universe by changing the game of fundraising online. We are lucky and honored to be part of an industry that is revolutionizing what has been an old and outdated model that clearly needed a healthy disruption.” The company is already putting the capital to work as it has hired a new CFO, Barry Shereck, who has more than 30 years of experience in financial management with early stage companies and has taken four companies public. Onevest also hired Erica Duignan as the head of deal flow to hone in on bringing high quality startups on its marketplace and to build a world-class team of venture associates, it said.
