When we think about the growth of online startup investing, we tend to focus a lot on the amount raised. And the growth in investments is impressive! From $80.7 million in 2018 to more than $360 million in 2021 to date, there’s no doubt that equity crowdfunding is exploding right now.

But there’s another seriously impressive metric that we often ignore — the number of investors making this market the success it is! In the Chart of the Week we published earlier this week, we examined how the number of investors has grown since 2018. And it is amazing. In January 2018, we tracked around 18,000 investors. Fast forward to September 2021, and we saw 253,000 investors funding startups in the online private markets. That’s more than 1000% growth!

I’m so excited and thankful to be part of this amazing moment in investing. It’s inspiring to watch thousands of startups, dozens of platforms, and hundreds of thousands of investors making the democratization of startup investing into a reality.

Car maintenance can bring a driver’s day to an abrupt halt. Most car owners dread having to deal with the hassle of repairs, which are often expensive and time-consuming. No one likes having to take off work to sit in an auto shop for hours on end.

To solve this problem, Brakes To Go has designed a service to bring brake repairs directly to customers. With a phone call or online booking, the company sends a certified mechanic to a client’s home or place of business. We reached out to Brakes To Go co-founder and CEO Randall Huntsinger to hear more about the inspiration behind the company and its emphasis on customer service.
