CircleUp: Investing private consumer companies, equity crowdfunding

Posted on by Brandon Klein

CircleUp ( is an online private company investment platform. We provide accredited investors free access to direct investments in high-growth consumer product and retail private companies that were previously difficult to identify and access. For retail and consumer product entrepreneurs, we offer an efficient way to access a network of sophisticated investors as well as value added partners.

Typical investments on CircleUp are food, personal care, pet product, apparel or retail/restaurant companies with $1-$10 million in revenue and are looking to raise $100,000 to $2.0 million in growth equity. Less than 2% of companies that apply are listed on our site.

As the largest equity based crowdfunding site, CircleUp provides not only access to interesting consumer and retail private company investments, but also a wide ranging, sophisticated investor network. Our investor base includes retail and consumer product industry experts, venture capital, private equity and other financial professionals, business leaders, angel investors and others interested in expanding their investment portfolios with private company investments.

Investors can review a curated list of private company investments, ask questions to the management team, request product samples and complete their private company investment online via CircleUp.
