NEW YORK, NY and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) - GATE Global Impact LLC and Unismart Capital Software Inc. makers of the "Fundingroadmap" announced today that they have established a joint venture to develop an integrated version of their premier platforms to provide tools for the new Crowdfund Investing industry. Crowdfund Investing utilizes the power of a group of people in combination with crowd intelligence to fund a small company for offerings of less than $1m. This new investment practice is in sync with GATE's Impact investing platform that provides a regulatory compliant infrastructure to facilitate transactions. Crowdfund Investing brings the strength of many individual investors to aggregate smaller dollar amounts to unite for a single funding goal.
Fundingroadmap is the first standardized business plan and due diligence reporting system on the cloud, accessible anytime from anywhere. Fundingroadmap provides an ongoing working plan, helping entrepreneurs run their businesses with the objectives established during the planning process, updatable with ease as the enterprise progresses. Their multiple choice platform provides comprehensive compliant information and unique structuring guidance for the entire business planning and due diligence process in a transparent cloud based format only available in the Fundingroadmap. Once completed, entrepreneurs use it to present to friends and family, angel investors or VCs and it can also serve as part of their submission for a small business loan and or for crowdfunded investing disclosure information.
Converting to the Fundingroadmap standardized reporting system as part of the crowdfunding investing process will dramatically change the economic landscape, help stimulate the economy and provide the kind of disclosure and transparency that will be necessary to quickly get capital into the hands of more compliant and successful companies. And it moves the process of education, development, collaboration, selection, analysis, due diligence, and closing into the digital age.
Ruth Hedges, CEO of Unismart Capital Software Inc., has said, "Fundingroadmap is about instant access (in a standardized format) to relevant and accurate information increasing prepared applicants chances for funding and eliminating wasted time from those that are not, getting more loans and investments closed and processed. With the Fundingroadmap, the process of business plan and due diligence reporting finally becomes the streamlined and efficient process that Web 3.0 has evolved into for nearly every other aspect of business reporting. People file taxes online, use standardized accounting software online, and even file a patent online and so much more. So it's time to use this kind of technology to help level the playing field for access to capital for everyone too -- and our collaboration with GATE Global Impact will help us accomplish that together."
The mission of GATE Global Impact is to fulfill the increasing global demand for market infrastructure that enables capital to identify and transact in investments that provide a sustainable social and/or environmental benefit and financial return. GATE has created a centralized electronic marketplace to facilitate the transactions of impact-focused investment products and has developed a utility that provides efficiency, transparency, liquidity and education that enables the transaction processes in a variety of markets. GATE provides an end-to-end solution inclusive of information, performance metrics, settlement and clearance. These markets include private equity, private debt, microfinance and environmental credits. GATE Global Impact ultimately believes they will have a positive influence by providing investors and entrepreneurs a regulatory compliant marketplace to interact allowing for future job creation and to stimulate economic growth
"As a crucial part of our ongoing development, GATE continuously seeks new avenues to inform investment professionals and help them discover and analyze opportunities. The speed, efficiency and standardization built into the Fundingroadmap reporting system provides the kind of transparency necessary in a constantly expanding global digital world. And we are very excited to be able to provide this kind of advanced technology to our customers worldwide," said Vincent Molinari CEO of GATE
