SkinX is the first funding platform that gets every American in the game funding privately-held businesses, fueling innovation and creating jobs.
SkinX is a tech-enabled funding platform that takes an old, familiar fund structure and adds entertainment to turn investing into a gamified experience for everyone. To operate our fund, SkinX has the first and only deal flow engine sourcing untapped opportunities from nearly every zip code in America. The entire platform, the fund and the software, has been built to be licensed as a turn-key solution. SkinX has a patent-pending and is a registered adviser with the SEC. We will announce our first funds in Q1 2021.
SkinX is the first to invite all "everyday" Americans, non-accredited investors to invest in a fund that invests in privately held businesses. Like a mutual fund, in that it's an SEC registered fund… but our fund invests in privately held assets not correlative with the market. In fall 2021, we will launch the first “Skinvestor Telecast” where shareholders vote on businesses SkinX wants to fund.
