Crowdability Launch Allows Individuals To Provide Growth Capital
Earlier this month, financial veterans Wayne Mulligan and Matthew Milner announced the launch of Crowdability, a disruptive platform in the private investment world.
Growth capital investments have historically been limited to individuals with easy access to deal flow and massive amounts of capital to invest. With Crowdability’s launch, the everyday investor now has the opportunity to buy equity in early stage firms.
Some of the best returns in history have been in private companies (it is rare to see a publicly traded company growing revenue by 200 percent per year). As Crowdability points out, Google’s earliest investors made a 3,000 percent return when the company went public.

One of the key reasons investment of this nature had been limited is because of the risk involved. It is very difficult to project returns of a company that is constantly evolving and has inconsistent cash flows, leaning to many failed investments. To combat this, Milligan and Milner are providing an extensive amount of education to investors, including strategies and ideas. Updates and additional information is published four days a week in the company’s newsletter.
As a pioneer in the financial technology space, support from Lindzon is promising for Crowdability. Lindzon made a name for himself with the creation of WallStrip, which he sold to CBS, before going on to found StockTwits.
Lindzon commented on the launch, “Crowdability has the team, the integrity, the expertise and now the capital to fill this role. They've already made great strides. Now the Social Leverage team and I are excited to roll up our sleeves and speed up their access to startups and the investment community."
