Research Outline

Software Companies: Crowdfunding


To have a list of software companies that create platforms for real estate crowdfunding. Examples of this kind of company are LenderKit, Katipult, and Sharein. An ideal response would include a list of these companies (which would include the three mentioned) and provide for each their pricing, an explanation of their platform and what they provide, and whether it can integrate with a payment gateway.

Early Findings

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our initial hour of research was spent understanding the three companies provided in the preliminary transcript. None of them appear to exclusively create platforms for real estate crowdfunding ONLY, so we modeled that on the first set of ten competitors we identified.
  • The second set of ten competitors we identified focus exclusively on real estate crowdfunding.
  • All twenty competitors we provided need to be checked to ensure that these are acceptable, as our scopings below reflect that they are indeed all correct.
  • It should be noted that not all companies will provide the pricing on their website and will require either a phone call or an email to be sent to them. Wonder does not do either of those things as we are not a primary research company. We are a secondary research company. We can, however, provide contact numbers, emails, and/or contact forms.
  • It should also be noted that it is not possible to determine what payment gateway each platform uses. A sign up must occur to find that out, and again, Wonder does not do this. If something else was meant by "payment gateway" that would clearly have to be communicated to us in any reply.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.
