About Us

CrowdCheck offers a weapon against potential fraud and helps investors make good investment decisions. CrowdCheck does the basic “due diligence” that a reasonable person would do when investing small amounts of his own funds, and lets investors see the results of this due diligence in an easy-to-understand Report. This helps the entrepreneurs seeking funding too: they can show they mean business.

Plus, the CrowdCheck process walks the entrepreneur through the complicated disclosure process so that they know they meet all the legal requirements and aren’t likely to get in trouble later for saying the wrong thing—all without the big legal bill.

How are we qualified to do this? CrowdCheck’s founders are business lawyers and entrepreneurs, and our team includes very experienced securities attorneys. Our trained researchers, who help guide the entrepreneur through the disclosure and due diligence process, include securities lawyers and skilled investigators.

Our Researchers

Our researchers guide entrepreneurs through the disclosure process and help them establish that they are legitimate companies. They are a diverse bunch of people with a range of backgrounds in securities law and finance. Some of our researchers are partly retired after years of experience in their fields, and some are younger professionals. What they do when they are not helping entrepreneurs ranges from taking care of their families to writing steampunk fiction. But one thing they all have in common: they want to help entrepreneurs get access to finance while helping them protect themselves from liability. And they are all trained by CrowdCheck.
