Crowdfunding Made More Legitimate Using Cryptocurrency and Blockchain

Thomas Carter is changing how startup funding is carried out and building faith in cryptocurrency. Carter is a serial entrepreneur with over 30 years’ experience working in the startup scene. He has been involved in raising funds in industries ranging from sports to marketing, finance, and multimedia.

Securing funding can be a nightmare for start-ups and since the Cryptocurrency startupfunding exploded onto the scene in 2017, there have been multiple scams involved. Carter himself said that raising capital to fund your business is arguably one of the most difficult and trying entrepreneurial encounters as the process is too complex with too many moving parts. He, therefore, developed an alternative to bank financing that will not involve messy scams that he called Dealbox.

Dealbox is a business accelerator and crowdfunding platform to tokenize start-up companies and it is disrupting the traditional financing models. The company uses the latest financial technologies to handle large sets of data in real time. This will enable entrepreneurs to share their business ideas with multiple potential investors at the same time instead of going on a round of repetitive pitches.

Dealbox has realized a new approach to crowdfunding by sourcing capital from family offices, private equity firms, and knowledgeable, accredited investors during pre-sales before opening the investing to the public.

Q. Where do you see you and your company a couple of years from now?

Considering there are over $250 trillion of assets that can be tokenized, we see great growth potential for our platform. We are currently realizing that potential as we have sourced approximately $1 billion of aggregated deal flow through Deal Box.
