Newchip Launches New Marketplace Platform for Business Funding

Austin, Texas, March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Newchip, the #1 startup investment app on the app store, is announcing the web launch of its new marketplace platform for business and startup funding. Featuring 800+ companies and real estate deals, the Newchip marketplace aggregates investment opportunities from a wide range of crowdfunding platforms into an easy-to-use investment and portfolio management marketplace.

According to Newchip’s Founder and CEO, Ryan Rafols, “We’ve dominated the app sphere and are now ready to dominate the web. If you’ve seen Shark Tank and always wanted to invest alongside experienced investors like Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavek, and Y-Combinator -- that’s what we do. We connect thousands of everyday Americans to exciting investment opportunities and now we’re taking it mainstream.”

“At the core, we help cut through the noise to help you connect to investments you believe in. We’re taking investing from Wall Street to Main Street, and you can now invest in everything from a local brewery to what might become the next Facebook”, said Newchip Co-Founder and CTO, Travis Brodeen.

Co-Founder and COO, Judd Hollas, stated “Crowdfunding originally started with platforms like Kickstarter, where people donated money to startups to receive certain perks or the companies’ initial product. Now eight years later the vast majority of crowdfunding activity is centered on people investing in startups and growth businesses for the purpose of producing a return on their investment. In fact, new federal regulations allow entrepreneurs to raise up to $50 million in capital from 200 million everyday Americans.”

The Newchip platform will help everyday Americans interested in startup investing to source and invest in deals based on their preferences, interests, and goals. Through platform partnerships, Newchip consolidates business funding opportunities and, through machine learning, helps investors effectively source investments they can believe in and support.

Newchip’s aggregation model is similar to what Kayak provides in the travel industry by referring its customers, who view travel arrangements on Kayak, to flights, airlines and hotel bookings for travel reservations. However, in many ways, Newchip takes it further in the financial sector to be more like NASDAQ, with its marketplace and secondary market functions, while streamlining deal-sourcing from its partner network.
