Investibule opens the door to a diverse range of
investment opportunities in your community—
whether that's the place where you live or groups you care about.

What we do

For Investors

A growing number of individuals are looking to invest their money in a more meaningful way, into ventures they know and trust and that contribute to the health and well being of their communities. But hunting down those investment opportunities is difficult.

Investibule brings together a wide range of community-based investment opportunities into one easy-to-use platform that allows investors to discover investments tailored to their interests and investment profile.

For Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses

The financial landscape is changing rapidly, opening up new capital-raising options that allow entrepreneurs to bypass traditional financial gatekeepers and tap into their customers and supporters for funding.

By helping investors discover these investment opportunities, we increase awareness and broaden a company’s pool of potential investors. At the same time, we uncover market signals that indicate untapped investor demand, allowing entrepreneurs to identify potential angel investors and supporters within their communities.

For Communities

We strengthen communities by promoting a more collaborative form of funding that can empower and engage community members and foster deeper connections between investors and the business owners that serve them.

For the Community Capital Movement

The universe of community-based investments is growing, but remains highly fragmented. Investibule provides a focal point for community-based investment of all kinds and accelerates the movement by shifting the financial narrative and the flow of money into these emerging community-friendly investments.

We support all forms of community capital and partner with community-based financial organizations for mutual benefit and to grow the movement.

Investibule lists hundreds of opportunities, bringing together offerings across 20-plus funding sites.

Interview with Kristin Hull: Anyone with a bank account is technically an investor, she explains, and online aggregators like Investibule help individuals put their money into sustainable community ideas.

Your Guide To Impact Investing, Jenny Kassan: "You can search for opportunities in your area, by type of business, by type of investment, etc."

the new economy needs a new financial system that lets a thousand financial models bloom, bridging the gap between financial innovation and community

Everyone is an investor, and every investment has an impact.

As that concept gains currency, more and more investors are looking to put their investment dollars to work in their communities, where they can have a positive impact. A community can be the neighborhood, state or region where a person lives. Or it may be a group that they identify with, such as ethnic heritage, or a passion (renewable energy, women-owned business, craft beer).

However, that natural and seemingly simple impulse has been difficult to act on. Community-based investment opportunities exist, but they are scattered across multiple organizations and are difficult for investors to discover.

Investibule solves that problem by gathering community-based investment opportunities spanning Kiva, Credibles, Direct Public Offerings and JOBS Act-enabled crowdfunding offerings onto one easy-to-use platform.
