About StartEngine

StartEngine is the FinTech powerhouse driving the future of fundraising and alternative investing. StartEngine was founded by Howard Marks, the co-founder of Activision ($75B+ market cap), with the goal of helping entrepreneurs achieve their dreams by removing funding barriers. Howard was joined by Shark Tank judge and serial entrepreneur, Kevin O’Leary (aka Mr. Wonderful) as StartEngine’s Strategic Advisor and Investor in 2020. Since its inception, we have helped over 550 companies raise more than $1.1B from retail investors, for as little as $100 per investment. 

Why merely back a company when you can own a piece of it?
