InvestReady™ was founded to help investors safely verify their accredited status in order to access online investment opportunities. Since 2013, InvestReady™ has had the pleasure of working with world-class partners like Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, LendingHome and many more that have all recognized the potential of equity crowdfunding. Our partners feel strongly that the verification process should be a painless experience that is built around the needs of the investor and they rely on us to make that a reality.
Today, InvestReady™ is excited to announce the launch of an entirely new release which has been in development for over a year. After having verified thousands of investors, InvestReady™ has learned what its users care most about. As a result, the engineering team identified what design elements could be married with technology to build a verification process that is friendly, natural, and intuitive based on our user’s feedback. Now, InvestReady™ guides investors into the easiest and quickest method for them to get verified.
In less than 5 minutes an investor can verify themselves via their phone, ipad, or computer, regardless of whether they already have digital documents available or if they only have paper copies stuffed away in a folder. Answer simple straight-forward questions, snap a picture or upload a file, and submit! Verifying you accredited investor status is now that easy. Furthermore, InvestReady™ now makes it even easier to maintain accredited status by offering auto-renewals for qualifying investors.
InvestReady™ now also supports international investors by offering multiple options that take into account an international investors’ lack of IRS documents or US-based credit reports. Additionally, investors will soon be able to take advantage of instant verification by using a simple bank login to verify their assets digitally.
And let’s not forget the issuers themselves. The InvestReady™ software integration is now as easy as embedding a video with our iFrame integration. Don’t have your own site? InvestReady™ can even host your verification portal for you on our website. All these features and more will be rolling out over the next few months.
Since the law was codified in 2013, issuers have raised over $70 billion dollars through the 506(c) exemption. For all of us here at InvestReady™, we are excited to have been part of this new wave of innovation since the start, helping to make it easier for entrepreneurs and issuers to raise capital.
Finally, a special thanks to all our partners for their help and feedback during this development. They’ve been invaluable to the process and we are grateful for everything they have offered to us.
