About HelpTheCrowd

At HelpTheCrowd, we help investors who are interested in crowdfunding. We change how people invest in entrepreneurs by bringing actionable data to early stage investing. We empower investors by helping them ask better questions and make better informed decisions.

Crowdfunding is a great way for entrepreneurs to get funded. For investors, the experience has a lot of catching up to do. The research, information and service provided to an investor interested in a big telecom company is lightyears ahead of anything available to that same investor looking into ‘Tom’s Telecom Startup’.

We are here to bridge that gap and do our part in taking crowdfunding to the the next level.

The crowdfunding industry is experiencing a period of immense growth, and we are uniquely positioned to benefit from it. Our tools (currently in beta) are receiving great feedback from our initial clients. We introduced our beta product to a select group of investors, entrepreneurs, academics and crowdfunding professionals. Based on their feedback, we now start rolling out our IaaS (Information as a Service) product in full force.

Join us now and become part of a high performance team and a future leader in FinTech.
