About Us

InfraShares is a crowdfunding platform that helps raise private investment in infrastructure projects (toll-roads, bridges, water/waste-water, mass-transit, renewable energy, schools, courthouses, etc.) and infrastructure focused start-ups.  InfraShares takes the successful model of crowdfunding investment for technology start-ups and commercial real estate projects and applies it to the infrastructure industry.

While private investment in public infrastructure is critical to meeting global infrastructure needs, small to medium sized projects (under $500 million) and infrastructure technology companies often suffer from a lack of cost competitive early-stage capital.

Recent laws have removed restrictions on general solicitation of securities allowing for “crowdfunding” of equity and debt investment in new ventures.  InfraShares leverages technology and industry expertise to provide a platform for project sponsors to market their projects to a broad base of investors who were previously restricted from participating in these deals.
