With backing from alumni of AngelList and Uber, the open-investment platform ‘Republic’ gives anyone the opportunity to invest in a startup.

The small $10 investment minimum allows entrepreneurs to crowdfund from non-accredited investors with less experience and limited monetary capabilities. Unlike crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, contributors receive equity in correlation with the investment.

U.S. Investment Crowdfunding in startups had a volume at approximately $1.2 Billion in 2015.
