eQuo is a community built by entrepreneurs.
We want them to own our platform too.

Our investors are our users and the people who want entrepreneurs to succeed. If you want to invest in our platform, we’d love to talk with you.

For Profit Business

We maintain something that is often overlooked, a business model. While our platform is free for most users, we have multiple revenue streams with a strong profit outlook.

Not-for-profit Mentality

Our community is built intentionally on a belief system that you can make money, but you should also make the world a better place. We want to change the world and help entrepreneurs get to the next stage.

Global Platform

Our users are entrepreneurs with global ambitions. So are we.

eQuo is the first distributed capital marketplace where entrepreneurs, investors and lenders can connect efficiently and only connecting entrepreneurs, investors or lenders together when they meet mutual needs and stated criteria.

We do all of this in a level, equal, fair and unbiased manner.
