Fundopolis is a new player in the equity crowdfunding space. Filing their CFPORTAL form in April 2019. The platform is ran by Daniel W. Ham, Chief Executive Officer and Jan Steenbrugge, Majority Owner.
Fundopolis is a destination for all things funding. With the goal of continuous innovation and helping communities thrive. This platform opens the door for unaccredited investors to support the businesses they know and love through Regulation Crowdfunding offerings. Fundopolis nurtures investment needs and opportunities through community engagement.
It is apparent through numerous areas on their website the commitment to community is a core value of Fundopolis, and our team is excited to see how investing and community with regulation CF and A crowdfunding will make an impact at the local level.
Fundopolis is enabling a future in which wealth is not defined by profit, but by the community.
Incentives and Promotions
At this time, (November 2019) we are not aware of any current incentives or promotions being offered.
Earnings & Data
Fundopolis is to new to have any meaningful earnings data on investments, but what we can tell you is that both CEO and majority shareholder do have a proven track record of success.
Jan is the Founder & President of Ad Meliora, a real estate investment firm with over $200M in assets under management, Ad Meliora Construction and AM Building Supply – an import/export business providing products for the real estate development market.
Daniel Ham is listed on the CFPORTAL form as Chief Executive Officer, however on the companies website Daniel is listed as the COO. Either way, his experiences in capital markets put him in a great position for leadership in Fundopolis.
According to the SEC form CFPORTAL: The funding portal intends to collect a 4-6% commission on sales of securities made through the portal.
Interestingly enough, this appears to be one of portals that is charging the investor directly. Investors are charged 2% of the amount invested with a minimum fee of $3.50 and a maximum fee of $75.00. This is unique as most other equity crowdfunding platforms will charge the fees to the startup who had just issued the fund-raise.
While I can see many advantageous for the portal to pass fees to the investors, a 2% fee on day one of the investment only makes for an uphill climb to get a return on investment. Our team at Kaxlo is interested in understanding the reasoning behind this fee structure and will follow up with addition details as we learn more.
