About Companisto

Companisto (www.companisto.com) is the German market leader in equity-based crowdfunding and one of the leading crowdfunding platforms in Europe. 

Equity-based crowdfunding means that many people team up to become shareholders in a start-up. The investors – also called Companists – can participate in the company with an investment amount of their choice and, in turn, participate in the profits and increases in value of the start-up.

Companisto has a minimum investment amount of 100 Euro, because it wants to enable everyone to participate in crowdfunding campaigns. Start-ups funded via Companisto receive not only capital, but also publicity, marketing, and a large number of active supporters.

Companisto currently has more than 75,000 investors, who have invested a total of over €45 million in start-ups and growth companies.
