First of its Kind, The Native Funds First Offering Under Title III On NextSeed


We’re excited to be part of the first Title III crowdfunding success! People from all over the U.S. came together to support and fund a new small business on Main Street.

The Native is a new luxury hostel concept that is launching in Austin, TX. The team of experienced entrepreneurs behind The Native raised $396,500 in just eight weeks of crowdfunding on NextSeed.

Investors thought that it was a “great idea with a strong team” and that The Native would be the “right business in the right place at the right time.” These early investors are creating the change that’s happening through NextSeed: a shift in the way wealth is distributed and how business financing is getting done in America. Why should these kinds of investments only be available to a small fraction of the wealthiest people in the country?

Before May 16, 2016, the public had no way of getting in on restaurant or bar deals without knowing the right people. You also had to make over $200,000 a year in income to meet the legal threshold to participate in those deals. If you weren’t wealthy, the rules blocked you.  And what if you wanted to invest with just $100? Not a chance.

But now you can, and NextSeed is proud to be part of this movement.

Access to these new opportunities is just the start. Once The Native opens for business, investors can expect monthly payments right into their NextSeed accounts. You don’t have to worry about timing the market to sell shares or getting diluted by other investors. You can also support your investment by paying a visit and telling friends to check it out! 

When forward-thinking investors and entrepreneurs are able to help each other and form strong connections, great things happen. We think that’s the promise of Title III investment crowdfunding, and you’re making it a reality.
