Democratizing Access to Investment One Investor at a Time
Part of CAVU’s mission is to democratize access to tech careers through our training platform. Through CAVU, we hope more people will be able to learn new skills that will help them navigate careers in the tech ecosystem.
In addition to leveling the playing field to access skills training and coaching, one of the things that excites us about being on the Republic platform is how they provide more people access to investing in startups.
A lot of people are familiar with giving to a GoFundMe campaign and things like that. With crowdfunding platforms like Republic, they’re able to support startups by investing. So you’re not just getting the benefit of giving your money to something that will benefit others, you’re able to support a company with a mission that you really like. And, depending on how the company’s crowdfunding raise is structured, you may be able to own a little piece of it as well.
Although crowdfunding investment is new to a lot of people, it has already begun to make a difference in accessing investment. As we work to achieve our goals to help increase diversity in the tech ecosystem, platforms like Republic are also able to do that with investing. Most people think to be an investor you need thousands of dollars. With crowdfunding platforms, you don’t have to have $100,000 to access the world of investing, which broadens the diversity of investors.
The CAVU crowdfunding campaign is getting started. We are currently in our reservation / pre-launch phase on the Republic platform and we’re excited about fully launching our crowdfunding campaign soon. It is exciting to be the first Alabama company accepted into the Republic platform. We hope you’ll visit.
You can visit our campaign page at republic.com/cavu for the opportunity to not only support our work, but to become a stakeholder and beneficiary of our future success. Reserving now ensures you have a spot in our campaign when we move into our investing phase.
