The leadership team includes Sachin Latawa, former Real Estate CFO at Icahn Enterprises, and Michael Marcotte, Senior Executive Partner, former President, and Chief Digital Officer at the Echostar Corporation.
“There is a massive opportunity for early-stage technology companies to access capital through Crowdfunding. Early-stage companies are also finding it attractive to acquire strategic customers during the public fundraising campaign while building out their brand” says Sachin Latawa. The company is supported by a 30+ name strong advisory board of senior executives across technology and capital markets, including Brand Ambassadors. “As an entrepreneur myself, I am thrilled to be the voice of the many talented tech entrepreneurs in the US,” says Actor and Entrepreneur Adam Ambruso, Brand Ambassador of Funders USA.

Funders USA is registered with the SEC and a member of FINRA. Funders USA operates as a Funding Portal and acts as an intermediary for financing between investors and startups. Broker-Dealers may also launch Regulation D and A offerings.
Crowdfunding: Title III of the JOBS Act outlines Regulation CF, a type of offering allowing private companies to raise up to $1 million from all Americans. Prior capital raising options, limited private companies to raising money only from accredited investors, historically the wealthiest ~2% of Americans. “Pending proposal from SEC to increase the annual offering limit on Reg CF to $5 million will further validate the importance of this space and will be extremely useful for startups while providing all investors to participate in the next round of unicorns,” says Peter Stridh.
