Which platform has the most Top Deals?

KingsCrowd’s Top Deal and Deal to Watch designations highlighted the best and most promising deals on equity crowdfunding platforms. As we move towards writing reports for most raises, and therefore away from these specific designations, we look at the platforms which generated the most significant share of exciting deals since 2021.
  • Republic, Wefunder, and StartEngine clearly appear as the platforms hosting the most promising deals.
  • Despite significantly fewer deals on its platforms, Republic had more Top Deal and Deal to Watch designations than any other competitors. This substantiates Republic’s selection strategy for its deals.
  • SeedInvest also had an interesting share of Deals to Watch, even if the company hosted very few deals a year before being acquired by StartEngine.

Note: All data on online startup investing used for the Chart of the Week comes from the KingsCrowd database and represents a snapshot of the U.S. crowdfunding market.
