Our Company Inc. is developing an equity-based crowdfunding platform that will revolutionize the way businesses and young startup companies raise capital.  We are in the forefront of a new industry and are poised to be the leaders in this space.  Equity-based crowdfunding was signed into law by President Obama on April 5th 2012, while not yet in effect, it will be available to all Americans in early 2013.

Management includes industry leaders and experts; the company has successfully its seed financing, as well as its first round of funding.
